Andre 3000 Joins James Blake on Unreleased Collaboration
André 3000 has been MIA—on the music side—for most of 2018. Aside from his two beautiful songs "Me&My (To Bury Your Parents)" and "Look Ma No Hands," he hasn't released any new music.
However, British singer-songwriter James Blake, whom André has collaborated with before on "Look Ma No Hands" (he played the piano),As mentioned, is sitting on a musical gem that features himself and the OutKast member. Last weekend, Blake unveiled a previously unreleased collaborative song with Three Stacks at his concert in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Over a melodic piano groove and moody synths, Blake delivers his trademark airy vocals. Later, the instrumental switches to a thumping industrial-sounding beat and that's when André comes in and delivers yet another stellar verse.
There's no word on if this song will ever see the light of day. As mentioned, this isn't their first time collaborating on a tune. The duo teamed up on the 17-minute jazzy tune "Look Ma No Hands," which André dropped on Mother's Day.
Although André hasn't released any new music, he's keeping himself busy with other projects. This year, the 43-year-old artist has been focusing on his fashion and film career.
In October, a trailer for the upcoming sci-fi flick High Life was released online. The film features Andre playing a guy named Tcherny who go on an intergalactic trip to the black hole with a crew of other inmates. However, once in space, things go horribly wrong on their spacecraft. High Life is set to arrive in theaters in 2019.
Fashion and movies aside, check out James Blake's new song with André 3000’s verse (coming in at the 7:40 mark) below.
