CeeLo Green fans, it's that time again. The singer is gearing up to release another album, and it's coming sooner than you think. According to Billboard, following the release of TV on the Radio just a few months ago, the ATL musician will release another album called Heart Blanche later this year.
"We're actually in the final stages of completing his album. He's really been hard at work," said Craig Kallman, Atlantic Records CEO/co-chairman. "We've got a big, big list of songs that we've been going through, and we're kind of mixing the final songs now. We're going to be imminently figuring out his marketing plan and single release schedule, and we're looking at the fourth quarter [for release]."
Kallman went on to reveal that Green has been hitting the studio with some heavy hitters including Mark Ronson, Eg White, John Hill and Charlie Pugh, just to name a few. Green's manager, Larry Mestel, touched on the quality of the music, saying that it's possibly the best material he's put out yet.
"It's arguably the best piece of work he's ever done," Mestel told Billboard. "It's very rare to find artists these days that focus on an album as a body of work — most albums these days are just collections of songs, but that's not the case here."
Very strong words. Look out for more information on Heart Blanche in the coming weeks.
