Danger Mouse marks 10 year anniversary of ‘Crazy’ with new Gnarls Barkley remix – listen

Chart topper was Number One in 2006 for nine weeks

Danger Mouse has shared a new remix of Gnarls Barkley‘s ‘Crazy’, a decade after it shot to the top of the UK singles chart.

The mix, which you can listen to below, has been described by the producer as a “weird remix I did back in 2006 that got rejected by the label”.

A decade ago today, the original song, which also featured CeeLo Green, was at the top of the UK charts where it remained for nine consecutive weeks on download sales alone before the duo deleted it.

To mark the anniversary, Danger Mouse has uploaded photographs, music and memories from 2006 via his new FacebookInstagram and Soundcloud accounts which include behind the scenes images from studio sessions with Gorillaz, CeeLo, and the late Mark Linkous (Sparklehorse), plus Danger Mouse-produced demos of unreleased tracks by Martina Topley-Bird and The Rapture.  

Danger Mouse recently produced Michael Kiwanuka’s new album, ‘Love & Hate’, which is due out on June 3. He is also working on the new Red Hot Chili Peppers album.

Meanwhile, Green recently said he wants the next Gnarls Barkley album to be “the next thing” he and Danger Mouse work on.

“I just talked to [Danger Mouse, real name Brian Joseph Burton] last night. I told him, ‘This is the next thing we should do.’ I know he’s about to do the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ album. I hope he does great with that, but I said, ‘Hey, I need you to be able to split your attention. We need another Gnarls album and so do the people,'” he said last October.

“We just have to set aside the time,” Green added. “But we did [2006 debut album] ‘St. Elsewhere’ in a week, because we only had 10 days to be productive. He was working on the Gorillaz album at that time and I was working on some freelance stuff, like the Pussycat Dolls’ ‘Dontcha’ and stuff like that. I was just writing and producing, I didn’t have a record deal at the time. And he’s a producer, he’s always a free agent. We got together, we didn’t know what it was going to be about.”
