Cee Lo Green Responds to Huge Popular Demand; "THE LADY KILLER" to Be Released November 9th; First Solo Album in Over Six Years From Grammy-Winning Hip-Hop/Soul Visionary Features the International Sensation, "F**k You"; First Live Show Set for October 7t

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 09/22/10 -- Responding to massive popular demand, Elektra recording artist Cee Lo Green has moved up the release of his hugely anticipated new solo album. "THE LADY KILLER" -- which includes the blockbuster first single, "F**k You" -- will now arrive in stores and at all online retailers on November 9th.

Green will herald the album's release with an eagerly awaited New York City solo concert, slated for October 7th at the world famous Irving Plaza. Presale tickets will be available to members of Cee Lo's online community beginning today, Wednesday, September 22nd at 10 AM ET; Live Nation will then offer presale tickets on Thursday, September 23rd at 10 AM ET. All remaining tickets will then be released to the general public on Friday, September 24th at 12 PM ET.

"THE LADY KILLER" is currently available for pre-order at Cee Lo's official website, www.ceelogreen.com. The album is offered in a variety of unique packages, with such extras as an exclusive screen-printed poster, a t-shirt, and a 7" vinyl single of the album's soulful "Georgia." All pre-orders receive an immediate MP3 download of the breakout hit, "F**k You."

Released last month via Green's official YouTube channel, "F**k You" caused an instant viral commotion, drawing more than 2 million plays in its first five days online. The clip quickly became the #1 Most Viewed Video in the United Kingdom, beating out the latest uploads from the hugely popular singing competition series, The X Factor. What's more, "F**k You" was featured on close to 4,500 music blogs around the world, hitting #1 on The Hype Machine MP3 blog aggregator as well as topping an array of global video charts. The song's official companion video can now be viewed online at Cee Lo's official Facebook page, www.facebook.com/ceelogreen, while the original "F**k You" clip can be seen and heard at www.youtube.com/user/CeeLoGreen.

"F**k You" -- co-written and produced by the multi-platinum certified production trio, The Smeezingtons, featuring Green's Elektra labelmate, Bruno Mars -- is now bulleting its way up the top 40 on Billboard's "Hot 100" singles chart. The track is officially on sale at all digital retailers, as well as via www.ceelogreen.com, where it can be purchased individually or in a bundle with an exclusive Cee Lo Green "F**k You" t-shirt. An amended version of the single and video -- entitled "Forget You" -- is set to arrive later in the fall.

Along with its phenomenal popular success, "F**k You" has also proven a favorite with Green's fellow artists and celebrities, with a flurry of tweets directing users to the video coming from such luminaries as 50 Cent, Ashton Kutcher, Perez Hilton, Simon Pegg, RealNetworks founder Rob Glaser, and music industry icon Bob Lefsetz. In addition, 50 Cent was inspired to put together his own unauthorized remix of the track, which has also drawn a huge online audience.

As if all that weren't enough, "F**k You" has received ecstatic critical acclamation from coast to coast. "One of the greatest songs in the history of humankind," declared The Dallas Observer's "DC9 At Night" music blog, with Idolator.com hailing it as "a toe-tapping old school soul-filled track that is hands down the happiest 'FU' we've ever heard." "As timeless, efficient, and repeatable as any number of golden oldies," declared Pitchfork, adding, "Like 'Hey Ya' before it, 'F**k You' gets by on a generation-spanning simplicity, and, coming from Cee Lo's mouth, the title phrase actually isn't illicit at all. It's beyond happy. Cathartic. It could be the new 'Sesame Street' theme."

Cee Lo -- whose "What Part Of Forever" is featured on Chop Shop/Atlantic's blockbuster "THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE - ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK" -- heralded "THE LADY KILLER" earlier this summer with "Georgia," an emotional tribute to his beloved home state. Both "Georgia" and an additional album track, entitled "ChamPain," are available now as free downloads to all fans joining the Cee Lo Green Mailing List at his official web home, www.ceelogreen.com.

Furthermore, explicit and amended videos for the album's stunning cover version of Band of Horses' "No One's Gonna Love You" -- produced by Paul Epworth (Florence & The Machine, Bloc Party, The Big Pink) -- can currently be seen and heard at www.youtube.com/ceelogreen.

Known far and wide as one half of Grammy Award-winning superstar duo Gnarls Barkley, Cee Lo Green is a true 21st Century renaissance man. Having first made his bones as a member of southern hip-hop pioneers, Goodie Mob, Green soon struck out on his own with 2002's "CEE LO GREEN AND HIS PERFECT IMPERFECTIONS," highlighted by the Timbaland-produced hit single, "Closet Freak." The acclaimed "CEE LO GREEN...IS THE SOUL MACHINE" followed two years later, again featuring a Timbaland-produced hit single in "I'll Be Around."

As if that weren't enough, Cee Lo also became one of R&B/hip-hop's most in-demand collaborators, penning and producing tracks for such like-minded artists as Jennifer Hudson, Brandy, Amerie, and Solange. His greatest success as songwriter/producer came in 2005 with the RIAA platinum-certified, international #1, "Don't Cha," by Pussycat Dolls featuring Busta Rhymes.

In 2006, Green teamed with producer/DJ Danger Mouse as Gnarls Barkley and quickly made history with the international #1 smash, "Crazy" (later named as "Song of the Decade" by Rolling Stone). The duo's kaleidoscopic debut, "ST. ELSEWHERE," proved a critical triumph and chart-topping blockbuster, ultimately earning RIAA platinum certification in the US for sales exceeding 1 million. At 2007's 49th Annual Grammy Awards, Gnarls received seven nominations and snagged two of the event's most coveted trophies -- "Best Alternative Music Album" and "Best Urban Alternative Performance." "THE ODD COUPLE" followed in 2008, earning further praise along with an additional trio of Grammy nods.

"THE LADY KILLER" -- Green's first solo work in more than six years -- sees the endlessly inventive singer/writer/rapper/producer continuing to push hip-hop and soul's creative envelope, this time working with a star-studded cast of producers that includes Salaam Remi (Nas, Amy Winehouse), Jack Splash (Alicia Keys, Missy Elliot, Jamie Foxx), and Fraser T. Smith (Nelly Furtado, James Morrison, Ellie Goulding).
