12 Albums You Forgot Were Released In 2015
We rounded up a dozen album that came and went so far this year.

“We don’t know what the next man’s going through.”

Such is the theme and the lyrical refrain of CeeLo Green‘s emotional new single “Robin Williams,” which name-checks such late, great funnymen as John Belushi, Phil Hartman, Richard Pryor and, of course, Robin Williams.

The song arrived today (July 17) along with an innovative music video that has to be viewed on Green’s official site (though there’s a teaser for it below), wherein the lyrics to the song are typed into a Google search bar and the resultant content pops up on the screen. You can also take part in an interactive way by clicking tabs for Google, Google Images, Google Shopping and Google Videos, which switches up the results that fly by for each line in the song as it plays.

“Robin Williams” is the first single from Heart Blanche, Grammy winner Green’s upcoming solo studio album (out November 13 on Atlantic). The video was directed by Vania Heymann in partnership with Interlude, “a media and technology company at the forefront of immersive video entertainment and LA-based production company PRETTYBIRD,” states a press release.

Watch the teaser for the “Robin Williams” eye-popping video above, then catch the full thing on CeeLo’s official site.
