Outkast may not have any new material recorded as a duo, but both Andre 3000 and Big Boi are planning to each release solo albums.

While promoting his Jimi Hendrix biopic “All Is by My Side,” Andre 3000 revealed Big Boi has nearly completed his upcoming studio effort and he hints it will be released following the conclusion of the duo’s homecoming tour.

“As far as an Outkast album, we don’t have any plans to do one. After this tour though, I’ve been thinking about recording this album that I always wanted to record,” Andre 3000, whose given name is Andre Benjamin, told Life+Times.

“We’re both working on solo albums. Big Boi is damn near through with his next album. I think after we finish this last show on October 31st in New Orleans. … I’d love to get in the studio and see if I can conjure up something.”

The duo have not released a studio album since the 2006 soundtrack to their movie “Idlewild.”
