Cee-Lo Says Goodie Mob Is 10 Tracks Into Reunion Album
Ten years after releasing an album with their full lineup in tact, Cee-Lo says, "We're just getting started."
The full Goodie Mob roster hasn’t released an album in over a decade. But Cee-Lo says he is now moving his solo work and his Gnarls Barkley projects to the side to give his Dungeon Family brethren his full attention. Following 2009’s reunion and the domestic and European tour it spawned, Cee-Lo says Goodie Mob might have an album worth of material, and they’re still recording.
“We’ve started kind of unofficially,” Cee-Lo told MTV’s “Extended Play.” “We’ve got at least ten or fifteen songs as Goodie Mob. But you know, a lot of the times when you’re recording, the first few songs hardly ever get used, so we’re just getting started. Now that Lady Killer is done, and I’m out of that space, I can give my undivided attention to Goodie Mob and make sure that that’s seen all the way through.”
After clashing over the direction of 1999’s World Party, Goodie Mob went on a hiatus to pursue solo careers. In 2004, Khujo, T-Mo and Big Gipp released One Monkey Don’t Stop No Show without Cee-Lo. Meanwhile, Cee-Lo released two solo efforts and saw mainstream success with two Gnarls Barkley albums. His latest solo effort, the aforementioned Lady Killer album, was released November 9.
