Grammy award-winning artist Cee-Lo Green releases the new music video for the leading track “FOR YOU” off his latest album “CeeLo Green is… Thomas Callaway”, which was released this summer on June 26th.
The ultimate love song, “For You” is one of CeeLo’s favorite songs off the new album and it was written by himself along with Roger Cook and Dan Auerbach from The Black Keys. Accompanying CeeLo’s soulful vocals on this track are legendary musicians such as Bobby Wood (who has backed greats like ELVIS), Dave Roe (bass player for Johnny Cash), Gene Chrisman (famous drummer who played with Elvis, Roy Orbison, Dusty Springfield), Russ Pahl (electric guitarist who plays for Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift), among others.
The music video creates a beautiful visual bringing this love song to life by featuring an older couple passionately singing into each other’s eyes and expressing their deep love and emotions for one another.
