Music Minute: Andre 3000 Remembers His Late Parents

May 18, 2018

 

Today’s music minute features Atlanta artist Andre 3000, who doesn’t produce much music anymore. But when he does, it’s still special.

The song, titled “Me&My"(To Bury Your Parents), was a suprising release last weekend. It's one of two track dedicated to his deceased parents

André’s mother died one day after his birthday in 2013.  His father died the following year.

 

Turns out Andre doesn’t just do vocals: he also plays bass clarinet.

 

You can hear him playing in this song and "Look Ma No Hands," which is an instrumental jazz collaboration with James Blake.
