After saying and doing some truly horrible things last year, CeeLo is attempting to make some kind of comeback, something he started with the craven and awful song “Robin Williams” earlier this summer. This morning, he shared another single, and while it’s nowhere near as deeply shitty as “Robin Williams,” it’s a long way away from erasing his recent past. “Sign Of The Times” is a woozy soul ballad that samples Bob James’ “Angela,” the theme music to the ’70s TV show Taxi. He previously used that same music on TV On The Radio, a mixtape of him sampling old TV show music that he shared and promptly deleted earlier this year. You can listen to “Sign Of The Times” below.
CeeLo is planning to release the new album Heart Blanche sometime soon.
