It has been a good month for music-lovers everywhere. First, OutKast confirmed they’re getting back together in 2014, and now Gnarls Barkley have done exactly the same.
Cee-Lo Green has confirmed he and DJ Danger Mouse will bring their award-winning duo Gnarls Barkley back next year for a new album, and what fans hope will be a tour as well. Cee-Lo and Danger Mouse are also friendly with André 3000 and Big Boi, so who knows. Maybe a joint reunion could be in the works for next year’s Coachella music festival?
A TMZ reporter confirmed the news after following a sleepy-eyed Cee-Lo into Los Angeles International Airport this morning and asking if Gnarls Barkley will “get back together.” Cee-Lo was quick to respond with, “yeah, next year.”

This is the second confirmation of the reunion after earlier this year Cee-Lo told Billboard that between 2013 and 2014 there will be, “a new Goodie Mob album… a new Cee-Lo Green album, a new Gnarls Barkley album, and hopefully a tour with all three of the brands together.” Cee-Lo released ‘Age Against The Machine’ as part of Goodie Mob earlier this year, delivering on his promise with the iconic rap collective’s first release since their 1999 album ‘World Party.’
While they never officially broke up, Gnarles Barkley released two critically acclaimed LPs; St. Elsewhere (2006) and The Odd Couple (2008) before going dormant.
