New Gnarls Barkley: The Odd Couple

Gnarls Barkley is back! Last we saw the eccentric oddball pairing of Cee-Lo Green and Danger Mouse they were the auteurs behind what eventually became the pseudo-underground cult album of the year. I say "pseudo" because obviously the music conveys that feel, even though everyone and their grandma was bopping to "Crazy". Well not my grandma. Or Lori's. But everyone else's.

Anyways the GB has returned to the scene, and it sounds like they're packing the the same hip-hop infused soul-groove-thingamajiggy that made their last album St. Elsewhere a hit. Here's the first single, "Run," which features a guest appearance by Justin Timberlake. Remember: it's not a cool edgy video for the kiddies if JT doesn't make a cameo:

And now here's the second one, just leaked yesterday by ?uestlove of The Roots. Pretty sure this isn't the actual video just ?uest playing around with the song itself. But still pretty cool. And you hearing it before "the masses," which makes you cool too!
