New Track: Cee-Lo – “All Alone Now” (Prod. by Waajeed)

Our man Waajeed has just released a never heard before track with Cee-Lo Green! Called “All Alone Now,” the song was put together as a demo for Whitney Houston around 2007. Beautifully done, and the story makes it all the more poignant. Some more background from Waajeed himself:

The A&Rs at RCA were calling every and anybody to find a sound for her 2009 release, I Look To You. I worked on seven or eight different versions finally deciding on this one with additional parts from Simon Katz from Jamiroquai.

Lyrically, Cee-Lo nailed it! At the time she was going though her very public separation with Bobby Brown. He wrote the words as if she was speaking directly to him.

I wish I would’ve been able to hear her wonderful voice singing these words, but for now Cee-Lo will do.

Cee-Lo Green Video: “Bodies”

[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/g6j-15wN68w" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

The story of The Lady Killer continues with Cee-Lo‘s next single, “Bodies,” which takes on the kind of morbid surreal tone as Gnarles Barkley‘s “Necromancer.” The “Bodies” video, directed by Mikael Colombu, features celebrities like Kerry Washington, a transformer-Karl-Lagerfeld-switchblade (apparently available at H&M), Bilal Oliver ‘trapped inside,’ and Janelle Monáe looking even less human than usual.
