Outkast’s Big Boi has confirmed he has signed up with Sony label Epic for his in-the-pipeline new solo album, which sees him working once again with Epic US boss LA Reid, who originally signed André ‘André 3000’ Benjamin and Antwan ‘Big Boi’ Patton to his La Face label back in 1992.

Confirming the new deal, Big Boi is quoted by Huffington Post as saying: “I’m back with [Antonio] LA Reid and Sylvia Rhone. Got a brand new situation”.

As for the new record, he admitted the live reunion with his Outkast partner will delay things slightly, adding: “I wanted to put something out before the end of the year. It depends, because me and Dre got a lot of work to do from now until the end of October. [But] you’re definitely going to get some brand new Big Boi material. Two or three singles before the fall”.
