Video: CeeLo Green – ‘Sign of the Times’

CeeLo Green is gearing up to release his new album Heart Blanche this fall, and we’ve already heard two singles, “Robin Williams” and “Sign of the Times.” Now, the latter—a smooth slice of neo-soul—has just been given the visual treatment, with an animated clip.

The video centers on a protagonist wandering through a broken landscape of cemeteries, dusty cities, and burning plains. At one point, a levy breaks and water carries cars and people into an ocean.

Heart Blanche, CeeLo’s first album since 2012, is due Nov. 13 featuring contributions from Mark Ronson, Charlie Puth, Eg White, Wallpaper, and John Hill.

Watch the heavily-symbolic clip below.
