‘Run (I’m a Natural Disaster)’ by Gnarls Barkley is this week’s Song of the Week. It’s the lead single from the duo’s ‘The Odd Couple’ album due out next month. Gnarls Barkley consists of vocalists Cee-Lo and producer Danger Mouse, and this track sounds like Cee-Lo is channeling the spirit (soul?) of the late James Brown.  The single has a very 60’s soul feel to it, and incorporates samples from 60’s master producer Keith Mansfield.  

You can catch the track at the group’s MySpace page. Their website is still gearing up for the release of the album and the supporting tour, but has some great stuff.
