André 3000 Drops Two Surprise Tracks For Mother's Day

For the first track, "Me&My (To Bury Your Parents)", André ges emotional on this piano ballad, touching on the memories of his mother and father.

"Happy Mother's Day", he wrote in one of the captions on Instagram.

On "Look Ma No Hands", Mr. Benjamin decides to put the microphone down and play the bass and clarinet only on this 17-minute instrumental that also features James Blake on the piano. First track 'Me&My (To Bury Your Parents)' takes the form of a reflective piano ballad, while 'Look Ma No Hands' is a sprawling instrumental opus featuring United Kingdom songwriter James Blake on piano.

The rare solo releases from Andre come along with some Instagram posts that pay tribute to his mother, who died one day after Andre's birthday in 2013.

Hip-hop star Questlove was among the fans to heap praise on Andre 3000 after listening to the new tracks on Sunday.

Andre made several guest appearances in 2016, notably with Frank Ocean, Kanye West, Solange and A Tribe Called Quest; his most recent was on N.E.R.D's "Rollinem 7's" late past year.

"I don't have the pulse anymore", he told GQ Style in October 2017. "I can't pretend. It's kinda like watching your uncle dance".
