Britain is about to be hit by its first ever number 1 record that hasn't been committed (officially) to CD, tape or vinyl.
Britain is about to be hit by its first ever number 1 record that hasn’t been committed (officially) to CD, tape or vinyl.
The record by Gnarls Barkley, a collaboration between Cee-Lo and Danger Mouse, is physically released on Monday 3rd April, but currently tops the iTunes download charts. The song itself, Crazy, is a catchy funk/soul tune that has a Nina Simone-esque vocal and a real feel of classic Motown to the backing track.
The song came to prominence in the UK when it was used as a promo for Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show. You can check out their MySpace page here.
