Notice how everyone from your melanin-deficient coworkers to chicks and New Birth Church members have latched onto to Mr. Green’s “F#ck You“? “Old Fashioned” is the lo-fi polar opposite but should prove to be a great fit for The Lady Killer. Whereas the previous single takes the carefree lane to curse a lover, “Old Fashioned” wins with its slow, foot-tapping declaration of dedication and commitment. Cee-Lo bellows out a heartfelt tale of repentance and acceptance for being a man set in his ways, a theme to which most red-blooded males should be able to find comfort.
The Lady Killer drops on November 23rd but “Old Fashioned” is available on iTunes today.
