Boi and Three Stacks have confirmed the big ATL return.
Announcing the news on Friday (13Jun14), Big Boi says, “It’s only right that we give the hometown what we’ve been giving the rest of the world, Atliens in ATL, homecoming! Festival Killers!” And Andre 3000 adds, “Coming from Atlanta gave us the freedom to be whatever we ever wanted to be because no one was paying attention. Now that everyone is, we want to say thank you.” (The Denver Channel)
Recent reports revealed Andre 3000 had started to put in work to a follow-up to 2003’s The Love Below.
Though Three Stacks declined a formal interview, as he was alongside his son, Seven Benjamin, and two others, we did have a brief conversation about his highly anticipated solo album. André 3000 confirmed that he was indeed working on new music, but was in no rush to release it, as these things take time and precision. After a joke from a fellow member of media who said, “I’ll believe it when I hear it,” 3000 replied with a laugh and simply nodded. (HHW)
Although Boi stayed slim with the details, he did promise fans could expect his own solo offering a couple months ago.
“It’s all about the 20 year anniversary of Southernplayalistic,” Boi said in an interview. “It’s a long time to still be doing music at a high caliber and having fun doing it. [Me and Killer Mike touring?] Anything can happen. We’ve got a couple new jams we recorded in the studio recently, so look out for that new Big Boi solo record coming too. So, you know, we’re just staying working, man.” (REVOLT TV)
