OutKast to release new album in 2010

Plus Big Boi and Andre 3000 both readying solo albums

Outkast‘s Big Boi has said the band are planning to release a new album in 2010.

The rapper explained that both he and bandmate Andre 3000 will release solo albums next year and, if both are well-received, Outkast will also release a new record.

Big Boi added that his solo album – called ‘Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty’ – is now completely finished, though it still doesn’t have a confirmed release date.

“This is all in the next year or so,” he told Billboard, “starting with my album coming at the top of the year, Dre 3000 right after me… and when the solo albums come out, depending on how the fans support them, then we’re gonna give them the Outkast album.”

Big Boi added that he wants to tour his solo album as part of a “high-powered funk energy extravaganza”.

In October, he gave away the track ‘For Your Sorrows’ (featuring George Clinton) online.
