The eclectic duo of Cee-Lo and DJ Danger Mouse, otherwise known as Gnarls Barkley, are back with the first taste off their upcoming sophomore album, The Odd Couple. According to the duo’s MySpace page, they are deciding between two selections for the first single. Neither of those two options, however, are the new Danger Mouse-produced, Run. With splashes of 70’s psychedelic funk, including an organ, maracas and addictive guitar playing, Run could do an all out sprint towards to the top of the charts. Listeners beware: If you try and compare this to the pure genius that was Crazy! (off their debut St. Elsewhere), you might be disappointed. The Odd Couple will be released off Downtown/Atlantic this April.
