Big Boi – whose real name is Antwan Patton – broke the news on Twitter, writing:
BREAKING NEWS !!!!!!!!!!!! Brand New Big Boi Album in Stores November 13 2012 " Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors " ™ RETWEET— Big Boi of OUTKAST (@BigBoi) June 9, 2012
The record was originally titled 'Daddy Fat Sax: Soul Funk Crusader' and last year, he revealed that he wanted to work with Kate Bush the album.
The hip hop star, who released his last album 'Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty' in 2010, told Rolling Stone that he was eager to collaborate on a track with the singer for his next LP.
He said: "I want her [Bush] to co-produce something with me. We'd produce a song and write it from scratch. I'd rather get her in a room and not have a plan and just let it come organically – it's not like I've got a song and I'll just be like, 'I want you to sing this part right here.'"
In 2011 Big Boi avoided jail time for drug charges after he was reportedly arrested by customs and border patrol police dogs when he left a cruise ship and was found with ecstasy pills, MDMA and Viagra.
