Cee Lo Green has remained largely quiet on the music front since bowing out of The Voice in early 2014, but the “Forget You” singer is back having a brooding new tune based throughout the life span of the late Robin Williams.

To the laidback melody, Cee sings “Life reminds of Robin Williams” and how “We Have got to laugh the pain away,” but adds that “We do not know what the next guy’s going through.” They’re all affecting touches on Williams’ life that ended in suicide in 2014 after almost 40 years of making people laugh.

Listen to the brand new track above which finishes with Cee Lo hauntingly asking, “Robin, are you able to hear me?”.

“‘Robin Williams’ is a court to our humanity,” the Begin Again performer said via a press release.

“Centered around the strength it requires to grin in the face of hardship.”

The reflective tune is the primary taste of Lo’s forthcoming fifth solo album Heart Blanche, which is out on November 13 this season.

Check out a clip of the interactive music video below that sees the tune’s touching lyrics being sought for in real time.
