After showing up only sporadically through guest appearances over the last few years, Andre 3000 has shared solo material today. In honor of Mother’s Day, the Outkast songwriter has released two new songs, both of which recorded “several years ago,” according to Pitchfork. “Me&My (To Bury Your Parents)” is a ballad dedicated to Andre’s mother and father, who died within a year of one another in 2013 and 2014 respectively. The song, in which Andre sings and plays bass clarinet while accompanied by Kevin Kendrick on piano, recalls simple memories of going to the grocery store and driving to football games with his parents.
In addition to the songs, Andre shared text messages with his mother sent on his birthday in 2013. She died the next day. He captioned one of the photos “#momslastwords.”
