Atlantic recording artist CeeLo Green has announced details of his eagerly awaited new studio album. “Heart Blanche” – which marks the GRAMMY® Award-winning superstar’s first full-length release in nearly five years – arrives worldwide on Friday, November 13th.
“Heart Blanche” is available now for pre-order at all digital retailers, accompanied by a trio of instant grat downloads: “Robin Williams,” “Sign Of The Times,” and the newly unveiled single, “Music To My Soul” (pre-order here!). “Heart Blanche” features remarkable cover art specially created by acclaimed Chicago-based artist Nick Cave. Cave is best known for his Soundsuits: wearable fabric sculptures that are bright, whimsical, and other-worldly.
“Music To My Soul” premiered earlier this week with a compelling companion video. In addition, CeeLo is set to team up with the one and only Roots for a live performance of the track on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, slated for Thursday, October 8th (check local listings).

“Heart Blanche” has been heralded by the aforementioned “Robin Williams,” which arrived this summer accompanied by a visionary companion video created in partnership with Interlude, a media and technology company at the forefront of immersive video entertainment and LA-based production company PRETTYBIRD. Interlude’s revolutionary video technology allows fans to watch as the single’s lyrics are typed into the Google search bar while simultaneously letting them click seamlessly between Google, Google Images, Google Shopping, and Google Videos, to discover a wide range of corresponding content that quickly populates each page. “Robin Williams” is streaming now at ceelogreen.com/robinwilliams.
“Sign Of The Times” emerged this month and was immediately greeted by critical praise, with Rolling Stone hailing the track as “soulful” and “laid-back” while Rap-Up raved, “(‘Sign Of The Times’) offers a butter-smooth palette of xylophone plinks and organ swells, with CeeLo doing his melodic neo-soul falsetto thing all over it. It’s primed for radio, and perfect for late-summer drives with the top down.” “Sign Of The Times” comes paired with a fully animated companion video, streaming now via CeeLo’s official YouTube.
