Cee Lo Green Says Gnarls Barkley Will Release New CD

Roger Kisby/Getty Images for Range Rover Evoque(NEW YORK) -- Cee Lo Green says a new album from his group Gnarls Barkley is on the way.  Until Cee Lo became a household name thanks to his hit "Forget You," most people knew him as the voice behind Gnarls and their worldwide smash, "Crazy."

US Weekly asked Cee Lo if the new project from the duo -- which also includes DJ and producer Danger Mouse -- would be similar to the duo's 2008 release, The Odd Couple. Cee Lo said, "I would hope it would break more ground [than that]. Knowing the nature of the space that we shared, I am pretty sure it will be somewhat similar."

Cee Lo also spoke about his upcoming documentary, Cee Lo Distilled, which is being sponsored by Absolut vodka. The video is available to Facebook users who "like" Absolut's page. On Monday, the page will host Part I of the doc, which promises viewers a "sneak peek into the exceptional world of Cee Lo Green," including footage of performances and candid conversation. Part II of the behind-the-scenes short film premieres July 7.

Cee Lo says he was flattered when Absolut approached him about the partnership. He tells US Weekly that Cee Lo Distilled will give fans a closer look and "enlightenment." However, he notes, "In all honesty, I don’t know if it will be enough to sum me up. It will certainly be interesting. For anybody it will be interesting. It will be full of moments."

Cee Lo's certainly been busy lately.  He's been coaching singers on The Voice, touring with Rihanna and preparing to host his new show Talking to Strangers, which premieres Wednesday at 11 p.m. EST on Fuse.
