Outkast have not released a studio album since their 2003 double LP ‘Speakerboxxx/The Love Below’ but their Atlanta counterpart posted a Snapchat video recently listing all the artists he has been working with, one of them being stated as Outkast. “I just did a record for Outkast,” he says in the clip.

However, a representative for André 3000 has since told NME that there is “no Outkast news to report”.

Outkast reformed for a series of shows – including a Coachella headline slot – in 2014, which André 3000 later said he regretted, describing the reformation as “selling out”.
André has since backtracked on his comments, saying: “It was a great thing; everybody enjoyed themselves. The fans got something they really didn’t expect. And I didn’t expect that at the time – we just went out and had a good time.”
André 3000 has also been pictured in the studio with Jack White and Chris Rock.
