The incomparable Cee-Lo Green of Goodie Mob and Gnarles Barkley fame is another Giant Step favorite. Anything he touches is gold(schlager), including covers, a rare and valuable trait in an artist. So check out this cover of the Band Of Horses‘ song “No One’s Gonna Love You,” and get lost in the love story. Fair warning: the video is slightly NSFW – a bit of tasteful nudity.

Cee-Lo’s next full release is slated for the fall, with the early title: Cee Lo Green is The Lady Killer. You can get a free download of the single MP3, “Georgia” on his site.
