Danger Mouse says Trump election win affected Gnarls Barkley plans
Brian Burton, the musician better known as Danger Mouse, appeared on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show on Monday to chat about his work curating Resistance Radio: The Man In The High Castle Album. In the interview, he gave an update on Gnarls Barkley, the duo he leads with CeeLo Green.
"CeeLo and I have always been in touch and we've always remained friends and still do and always have a creative desire," Burton told Lowe, saying that that period in their lives "never really felt finished." He went on to explain that while he and CeeLo connected on November 7, 2016 — the day before the U.S. presidential election — future meetings fell apart when Burton found himself "drinking heavily on a couch," alone and "staring at the TV."
Last year, CeeLo discussed Gnarls Barkley's 2006 smash hit "Crazy," off the duo's debut St. Elsewhere, with EW. "I still enjoy it," he said. "I'm still in awe of it."
