Word. “Robin Williams” will appear on Heart Blanche due out November 13th and is now available for download on iTunes. That’s CeeLo Green’s message in his heartfelt and uplifting new single, “Robin Williams“. Aside from his gig as a judge on the NBC music competition show “The Voice“, which he left previous year, Green’s last original album, The Lady Killer, was released back in 2010.
Green, an Atlanta native who still lives here part-time, has unveiled the new song “Robin Williams“, a thoughtful R&B-soul jam with a silken groove and a big heart.
The song is CeeLo’s self-proclaimed “homage to our humanity”, and features an interactive lyric video, in which lyrics are typed automatically into a Google search bar, allowing viewers to cycle through various tabs (Web, Images, Shopping, and Videos) and alter the search results on screen.
Take a look at and a listen to “Robin Williams.” The lyrics include lines like, “We don’t know what the next man is going through/Life reminds me of Robin Williams/We’ve got to laugh the pain away”.
The single references Williams, John Belushi, Chris Farley, Philip Seymour Hoffman and other late stars. Let us know your thoughts below, or by hitting us up on Twitter and Facebook.
