Andre 3000 Just Surprise Dropped Two New Solo Tracks

Andre3000-mothers-day-tracks

André 3000 - aka André Benjamin - posted two new tracks along with handwritten notes and sentimental ephemera including texts from his mother and snapshots of the two of them beaming at what appears to be an elementary school graduation ceremony.

Andre made several guest appearances in 2016, notably with Frank Ocean, Kanye West, Solange and A Tribe Called Quest; his most recent was on N.E.R.D's "Rollinem 7's" late previous year. Cruising in at over 17 minutes, the cut features a meandering bass clarinet solo played by 3K over softly-tickled piano chords from James Blake.

Andre 3000, who buried his mother Sharon Benjamin-Hodo five years ago, made a decision to channel his pain into two new tracks, "Me&My (To Bury Your Parents) and "Look Ma No Hands". In honor of Mother's Day, the Outkast songwriter has released two new songs, both of which recorded "several years ago", according to Pitchfork. Instead of rapping, he sang and played the bass and clarinet. She died the day after his birthday that year. "Me&My (To Bury Your Parents)" is a ballad dedicated to Andre's mother and father, who died within a year of one another in 2013 and 2014 respectively. "So #Andre3000 shares a song on Mother's Day about his mom who passed on his bday...& his dad who passed a year later and damn man this his heartbreakingly incredible", wrote The Roots drummer.
