A CeeLo Green demo from 2007 has recently been leaked online for a song called “All Alone Now”.
The A&Rs at RCA were calling every and anybody to find a sound for her 2009 release, I Look To You. I worked on seven or eight different versions finally deciding on this one with additional parts from Simon Katz from Jamiroquai.
Lyrically, Cee Lo nailed it! At the time she was going though her very public separation with Bobby Brown. He wrote the words as if she was speaking directly to him.
I wish I would’ve been able to hear her wonderful voice singing these words, but for now Cee-Lo will do.
Listen to CeeLo sing the demo for “All Alone Now” below…
Beautiful song… great job Lo!
Woooow…. I can only imagine Whitney’s voice on this track.
