Goodie Mob aging gracefully with 'Special Education'

Posted By on Wed, May 22, 2013 at 12:14 PM

This week, Cee-Lo, Big Gipp, Khujo, and T-Mo joined forces with Janelle Monáe to offer up "Special Education," a new cut from Goodie Mob's forthcoming album Age Against the Machine, due out Aug. 27.

Age Against the Machine is Goodie Mob's first proper studio album with all four members of the group in the mix since World Party arrived back in '99. "Special Education" is a grinding, synth and bass-driven number, and despite its modern production qualities, it feels like a classic Dungeon Family Cut. Janelle Monáe brings a touch of her trademark non-conformist sentiment to the song when she sings, "I don't wear the clothes you wear, I'm just different and I don't care. It's kind of sad and it's a shame, everyone wants to be the same." Good things are in the works.

... And in case you forgot, Cee-Lo's new reality show will probably have a lot to do with recording the new album.
