Andre 3000 Releases Two New Songs in Honor of His Mother on Mother’s Day
Did you expect to wake up and listen to the reclusive Andre 3000 drop two songs about his family? Yesterday, on Mother’s Day, the Outkast member joined Instagram and released two new heartfelt songs called “Me&My (To Bury Your Parents)” and “Look Ma No Hands” (featuring James Blake) in honor of his late parents all while playing bass clarinet. These two new songs are some of the rapper’s first solo music in years.

Both tracks are soft, introspective jazz joints that very much feel in line with the music of Three Stacks. “Me&My (To Bury Your Parents)” features vocals from Andre and piano by Kevin Kendrick. On the 17-minute “Look Ma No Hands,” Andre is joined by James Blake on the piano. On both songs, Andre plays bass clarinet and dedicates the songs to his parents. Andre 3000’s reps confirmed to Pitchfork that “Me&My” was recorded three years ago and written before the death of his mother, who died in May of 2013.
He also shared the lyrics to “Me&My (To Bury Your Parents).”
