New Music: CeeLo Green – “Robin Williams”

CeeLo Green takes us down memory lane, paying respects to past comedians like: Richard Pryor, Chris Farley, Philip Seymour Hoffman and the title of the song, “Robin Williams.”

Green sings: 

I’m afraid of not being able to laugh anymore; what’s life going to become once we don’t have any more heroes? Life reminds me of Robin Williams…we’ve got to laugh the pain away.

CeeLo tells Mashable:

Each of those people I named were just a few of the artists that have served as comic relief giving me laughter throughout periods of my personal and professional life. Being that I’m cut from that cloth, I realized that comedy is cathartic to both the audience and the author.

CeeLo will be dropping an album titled Heart Blanche due on Nov. 13th, his first album since 2012.
