Second Gnarls Barkley Disc Due April 8
Gnarls Barkley has settled on April 8 as the release date for its sophomore Downtown/Atlantic album, “The Odd Couple.” First single “Run” leaked two weeks ago and is just now starting to accumulate radio airplay.
A video for the track is in the works, directed by “the filmmaking team known as Happy,” according to Atlantic. Second single “Who’s Gonna Save My Soul” will have a video directed by Chris Milk, who worked with Gnarls Barkley on a clip for their cover of the Violent Femmes’ “Gone Daddy Gone.”
The group will support “The Odd Couple” with a summer tour, including a July 27 show at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl and both U.S. and European festivals.
The new album is the follow-up to Gnarls’ runaway hit 2006 debut, “St. Elsewhere,” which has sold more than 1.3 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
