In honor of Mother’s Day, André 3000 released two new songs, “Me&My (To Bury Your Parents)” and “Look Ma No Hands”, marking the Atlanta rapper’s first original releases outside of his work with Outkast. He released them around midnight eastern time on a newly-created Soundcloud account, after posting a message on his Instagram that read: “Happy Mother’s Day. I’m sure all the cards, dinners, flowers and last minute gifts are appreciated but I’ve learned the best gift a parent could get is to simply know their child is ok.”

“Me&My (To Bury Your Parents)” is an emotional piano ballad (played by Kevin Kendrick) with lyrics about André 3000’s memories with his mother–Sharon Benjamin-Hodo, who died one day after his birthday in 2013–and his father. In conjunction with the new releases, André posted a photo of him and his mother from lower school graduation, the written lyrics to “Me&My”, and screenshots of his last text conversation with his mother before she passed. This morning, he posted another screenshot of a text sent to “Mom” with the message: “Look Ma, No Hands”, the name of the second song released last night.

“Look Ma No Hands” is a 17-minute jazz instrumental that features James Blake on piano, and André 3000 on the bass clarinet–which he plays on both tracks. According to Pitchfork, a representative confirmed that “Me&My” was written before his parents died, “but was recorded three years ago (after both parents passed)” and “Look Ma No Hands” was recorded late last year.
