Cee Lo wanted to be “big, black James Bond” on new album

Gnarls Barkley singer, Cee Lo Green has revealed the inspiration behind his third solo album, ‘The Lady Killer’ – James Bond.

In an interview with Billboard the ‘Forget You’ singer said: “I sent some signals out to some producers I worked with and basically started by saying I wanted to sound like a big, black James Bond.

“I thought ‘The Lady Killer’ sounded edgy and elegant at the same time. So I wanted something like James Bond, but like Barry White would do it.”

Green also revealed that there would definitely be a third Gnarls Barkley album with Danger Mouse but not before a record with his hip-hop group, Goodie Mob.

“Now that I’ve got the ‘The Lady Killer’ out of my system, I’m ready to throw on my big jewellery again and do some hip-hop,” said Green. “That’s what my instincts are telling me, so that’s where I’ll go, as long as I’m allowed.”

‘The Lady Killer’ was released on November 8.
