According to various reports, and a twitter exchange, André 3000 might be releasing a new album next year.

Stephen Hill (president of programming at BET) tweeted the following conversation he had with André following Lil Wayne's show in Washington, DC over the weekend.

Me: hey what's up? You got the movie coming, right? Andre 3000: yeah...and I got a solo album coming top of the year. Me:*droptofloor*

Great, right? Well Billboard spoke with André 3000's representative, who gave a rather vague response: "Regarding reports of a specific plan to release an album in early 2014, there is no official confirmation on that report."

We're calling it now: He'll announce plans for an album towards the end of the year, but it will get delayed around four times until its eventual release in the summer.
