New music from Andre 3000 is a much-prayed-for phenomenon. Yesterday, the OutKast wildcard made the wishes of a lot of fans come through with the release of two songs in honour of the spirit of Mother’s Day: “Me&My (To Bury Your Parents)” and “Look Ma No Hands”.
Both songs are jazzy and fluid – Andre raps on neither but he plays bass clarinet on both. The former is an ode to his parents whom he lost a year apart, while the latter is a 17 minute-long instrumental that features James Blake on keyboard.
Accompanying the drop, Andre shared two of the final text messages between his mother and him on his new Instagram account:

Hopefully, this is a herald of more music to come from his camp – and OutKast’s.
