Fans will finally get the André 3000 solo album they’ve been pleading for for years this week, sort of. Three Stacks will release “New Blue Sun” on Friday (November 17).
It’s an instrumental record, which NPR calls
a stunning 87-minute mind-bender, minimalist and experimental, tribal and transcendent.
Interestingly, the opening track is called ‘I Really Wanted To Make A Rap Album, But This Is Literally The Way The Wind Blew Me This Time.’
I don’t want to troll people. I don’t want people to think, Oh, this André 3000 album is coming! And you play it and like, Oh man, no verses,” “So even actually on the packaging, you’ll see it says, “Warning: no bars.”
What do you think of an André 3000 album with no bars?
