André 3000 teases collaboration with SAULT

André 3000 has teased a collaboration with the music collective SAULT.

In an interview with Gilles Peterson for BBC 6 Music, the OutKast rapper revealed that he had been introduced to the collective when they were in “their secrecy stage”.

Since then, André says that they have been working in the studio together he explains: “You know, we hung out, went to the studio, messed around a bit… yeah. And once I was turned on to them, I kind of listened to what was done before. I think they’d only had like one or two albums out at that time”.

Peterson asks if any music had been recorded with SAULT which André replies: “We can look forward to it in the future.

“We’ve talked about me coming there [to London], actually, to work in the studio with them. But I’ve hung out [with them] in the studio here in LA before. You know, we messed around and played a lot of music,” he adds.

“But we’re hoping to do something a little bit more substantial, soon.”

The anonymous group of R&B, gospel, house and disco, recently made their live debut at Drumsheds, London which did cause division between fans as tickets cost around £100 each.

This debut included performances from the likes of already revealed members Cleo Sol, Little Simz and Michael Kiwanuka whilst others within the collective wore clothing to mask their identities.

Towards the end of 2023, André 3000 released his first-ever solo album, ‘New Blue Sun’, 17 years since his last full-length record with Outkast.

The release is entirely made up of solo instrumental flute tracks by the artists which marks a change of direction from the rapper.
