ANDRE 3000 has decided to bless the masses with a new solo project this Friday. The ATLien and Hip-Hop legend announced this week that he will be releasing “New Blue Sun” which will be his first project since his joint project Idlewild.
Andre is the epitome of being an unpredictable artist. His impeccable wordplay and unique style is what has catapulted him to the top of most Hip-Hop fan’s lists. As one half of Outkast, Andre has created timeless songs that still slap to this day!
So what would make New Blue Sun any different from his other projects? Andre has two words…no bars.
What Can We Expect?
The New York Times reports that the record will be “is an entirely instrumental album centered around woodwinds.” Andre made the announcement on Tuesday saying “I’ve been interested in winds for a long time, so it was just a natural progression for me to go into flutes,” He continued, “I just like messing with instruments and I gravitated mostly toward wind.”
While messing around he drew inspiration from Alice Coltrane, Steve Reich and Pharoah Sanders. The album was co-produced by André and Carlos Niño, and includes contributions from the guitarist Nate Mercereau and Surya Botofasina on keyboards and synthesizers.
I remember, at like 25, saying, ‘I don’t want to be a 40-year-old rapper. I’m still standing by that.Andre 3000, New York Times interview when he was 39
