News of Outkast reuniting for a new album surfaced in late 2011, but it seems that all that talk was just rumors. Andre 3000 recently sat down with GQ, where he dished on making music with Big Boi again, which didn't seem to be his main priority.
"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."
However, Andre said he was exited about putting out his solo album, which he hopes to release sometime in 2011.
"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."
So, what can we expect from Andre's solo album? Well, he says he'll be taking fans back to early Outkast music and the lively energy from their beginnings.
"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."
