Andre 3000 Will Finally Record A Solo Album After OutKast Tour

Is it really coming?

We're always confused about whether or not Andre 3000 will be putting out another album, or if he seriously plans to retire from rap -- but the latest update sounds encouraging for a project.

During an interview with Life + Times, in support of his upcoming Jimmy Hendrix biopic, Three Stacks also fielded some questions about music. He confirmed that there's no OutKast album on the horizon, but added that he's ready to buckle down and record his own project.

"After this tour I’ve been thinking about recording this album that I always wanted to record," he said. "We’re both working on solo albums. Big Boi is damn near through with his next album. I think after we finish this last show on October 31 in New Orleans, I’d love to get in the studio and see if I can conjure something up.”

That's the best news we've heard about an Andre album in a long time.

He also addressed the comparisons between himself and ATL newcomer, Raury.

"There’s a fair comparison with Raury. I think Raury is stepping out and pushing it though," he said. "That’s fair considering he’s not a straight and narrow kind of artist and going for his own thing. I just saw him the other day when he opened up for us in Atlanta and I think he’s a dreaming artist with good ideas and I hope he’ll grow and we give him his room to grow."
