Gnarls Barkley Takes Home Two Grammys; Duo Appears in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 16, 2007 -- Riding high from winning two Grammys at Sunday night's 49th Annual Grammy Awards, we're pleased to report that Gnarls Barkley has been tapped to appear in the famed Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. The 2007 edition hit stands this week, just in time for Valentine's Day, and features Gnarls alongside supermodel Jessica White.

Gnarls Barkley -- the combination of Danger Mouse and Cee-Lo Green -- was nominated for five Grammys, and won two of the prestigious prizes, for "Best Alternative Music Album" (honoring the RIAA platinum-plus certified "ST. ELSEWHERE") and "Best Urban/Alternative Performance" (for the history-making hit single, "Crazy"). What's more, the dynamic duo wowed the audience with a retooled slow-jam rendition of the now classic "Crazy."

Gnarls' awards season continued this week with the 27th Annual Brit Awards, for which the duo received three nominations, including "Best International Act," "Breakthrough International Act" and "Best International Album." In addition, "Crazy" has earned a Favorite Song nomination for Nickelodeon's 20th Anniversary Kids' Choice Awards, slated to air live from UCLA's Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles on March 31st.

In other news, Gnarls is poised to wrap up its ongoing winter tour alongside fellow Grammy winners Red Hot Chili Peppers. The trek returns to the road on February 27th at Rosemont, Illinois' Allstate Arena, with dates continuing through March 7th at Houston, Texas' Toyota Center (see attached itinerary).

"Smiley Faces," the most recent single/video from the blockbuster "ST. ELSEWHERE," made its premiere last week across the MTV networks, including MTV, MTV2, and mtv.com. It was added out of the box at MTV -- where Gnarls Barkley made a special appearance on "TRL" during Spankin' New Music Week -- and mtvU. It has now been officially added to VH1 and MTV2 -- where it recently received a full day of hourly "Unleashed" airplay. "Smiley Faces" also premiered on BET on February 5th, when it was the "New Joint" on "106 & Park" and the band was on hand for the video debut, marking their first appearance on the network.
