CeeLo Green is looking to make amends — which, he hopes, will include a return to a certain big red chair.

“I’ve talked very possibly about doing The Voice again,” Green, who coached four seasons of NBC’s reality singing competition, said in an interview with the Associated Press on Wednesday. “So I just kind of put that out there, wishful thinking, kind of willing it. Because I would love to do it again.”

Green’s new album, Heart Blancheout Nov. 6, is his first musical offering since pleading no contest in 2014 to a felony count of furnishing ecstasy to a woman in 2012. He followed that up with a series of controversial tweets

“It was very redefining moment in my personal and professional life,” Green told the AP. The singer, who has reportedly finished his community service sentence but remains on probation, emphasizes that his return to the music world is his first priority.

“I feel really strong and really confident about this album and going forward,” he said. “And I’m so grateful that you yourself, and everyone who just may happen to witness this particular interview, have my deepest, sincerest apologies for any inconvenience, any ignorance, any ill will, anything.”
