With a new album on the way and following a high-profile reunion on TV show The Voice, the Goodie Mob’s comeback rumbles on apace. The band, back working with Cee-Lo Green, have just announced “Is That You God,” the soundtrack for the upcoming movie The Obama Effect.
The track is a spiritual affair – gospel vocals, questions of faith, questions of life and what comes after – and at its heart is a verse from Cee-Lo. “It’s morning and the Prodigal Son is shining,” he begins, seemingly referring to his recent desire to return to the group where he first cut his teeth. But this is almost certainly a mere coincidence: although the track is touted as “brand new,” the same song, in a remix by Dabrye but still containing Cee-Lo’s contribution, was already featured on Adult Swim’s 2009 ALT RMX album.
The Obama Effect is releasing to selected markets on July 13, and “Is That You God” streams below.
