[Article] Andre 3000 Discusses Solo Album

In a interview with GQ, Andre 3000 discusses the possibility of putting out a solo album this year and kills the rumors about Outkast releasing another album. In the interview he also talks about doing Gillette commercials, his biggest fear, being a perfectionist and more. Read the whole interview by clicking the GQ link.
Andre 3000: "There’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. There’s a lot of music on the horizon. I’ve been living off the excitement of new artists. I’ve been privileged to have these new artists kind of reach out and grab back and say, “Hey, Andre, we want you on this song.” So I’ve been taking those calls and for the last two years, I’ve been doing collaborations. So these new artists have kind of been keeping me alive. I’ve just really been feeding off of that and this year I think I’m planning to do a solo project. I don’t know when it will come out, but hopefully it’ll come out this year. As far as OutKast, I really don’t know if or when that will happen."

GQ: What’s the new solo album going to be like?" Andre 3000: "The only thing I can really say is I’m going to get back to having fun because that’s what it was all about when I started this in high school—with OutKast—those were like high school dreams. I’m 36 now, so I have grown-man dreams. This album will just be me being myself as normal."
