Andre 3-stacks sat down with GQ to talk about both his solo album and an Outkast album. Sadly it looks like only one of the two will be coming. Fortunately one of of the albums will be coming this year. Find out whether it’s an Outkast album or an Andre album after the jump.
Andre 3000: Thereâ€™s been a lot of talk on the Internet about an OutKast album and I have to say that as of now, there are no plans for another OutKast album. Thereâ€™s a lot of music on the horizon. Iâ€™ve been living off the excitement of new artists. Iâ€™ve been privileged to have these new artists kind of reach out and grab back and say, â€œHey, Andre, we want you on this song.â€ So Iâ€™ve been taking those calls and for the last two years, Iâ€™ve been doing collaborations. So these new artists have kind of been keeping me alive. Iâ€™ve just really been feeding off of that and this year I think Iâ€™m planning to do a solo project. I donâ€™t know when it will come out, but hopefully itâ€™ll come out this year. As far as OutKast, I really donâ€™t know if or when that will happen.
GQ: Whatâ€™s the new solo album going to be like?
Andre 3000: The only thing I can really say is Iâ€™m going to get back to having fun because thatâ€™s what it was all about when I started this in high schoolâ€”with OutKastâ€”those were like high school dreams. Iâ€™m 36 now, so I have grown-man dreams. This album will just be me being myself as normal.
