The band are adding the finishing touches to the record

Gnarls Barkley have announced the title of their second album, the follow-up to the million-selling ‘St Elsewhere’.

Dubbed ‘The Odd Couple’, the album is currently being recorded in Los Angeles with live musicians, in stark contrast to their more electronic and sample-heavy 2006 debut.

Billboard reports that no track titles have yet been confirmed for inclusion, although the first single is rumoured to be ‘Run’.

Gnarls Barkley, producer Danger Mouse and vocalist Cee-Lo Green, topped the UK singles charts on download sales alone with ‘Crazy’ in 2006, before their debut album also hit Number One.
