(May
31st, 2006, Los Angeles, CA) – Gnarls Barkley’s phenomenal hit ‘Crazy’
will be deleted this week, ending a phenomenal run of nine consecutive
weeks at the top of the UK charts.

The decision to delete
‘Crazy’ was made to ensure that the focus of the Gnarls Barkley
campaign now falls on the second single, ‘Smiley Faces’, scheduled for
a July 17th release.


On the subject of deleting the single,
Gnarls Barkley himself was heard to say “I consider myself a realist. I
suppose that goes for most of us. But I have found a way to at once
hold them, fold them, walk away and run. This was not a painless
decision. But pain is nothing but a bi-product of beauty. Potentially
toxic, to be sure, but that’s all it is.”

The success that
Gnarls Barkley has enjoyed with ‘Crazy’ has been remarkable. Having
made music history when the track became the first to top the UK
singles chart on download sales alone, ‘Crazy’ has dominated in the UK,
with sales in excess of 700,000. The deletion of the track – the
longest running #1 single in over a decade – will ensure that ‘Crazy’
has only ever charted at #1. The duo also enjoyed the rare 1-2-3-4 of
simultaneous single, album, ringtone and airplay domination.

Additionally,
the band has confirmed they will be performing at this years MTV Movie
Awards on July 8th, hosted by Jessica Alba. The obvious big question
is, what will be the band’s ‘theme’, given each show they’ve done so
far has involved different costumes, including The Wizard of Oz at
Coachella.
