Pitchfork is reporting that Andre 3000 is coming out with a new solo album (which, I guess would be his first since Speakerboxxx/The Love Below was still an OutKast album). And, he says, he’s got the concept in mind.
We all know Andre is a bit of an eccentric character, so I can only imagine what type of concept he can come up with. In his words:
“I have a concept, and all the soundscapes are already in my head, so I just have to figure out how to get there.”
It’s nice to know he’s getting back into music, because he’s really been going all out to support his movie career in the last few years. Hell, I’m sure being in a movie with Will Ferrell has gotta be good for your creativity, but I’m hoping he manages to put this to good use.
Details are sketchy on exactly what the ‘concept’ is. But from a man who, in Big Boi’s words, considers himself cooler than a polar bear’s toenails, you know it has to be good.
