Three years since the release of 5-time Grammy Award-winner OutKast's landmark RIAA diamond-certified #1 double-CD Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, Antwan 'Big Boi' Patton and André '3000' Benjamin return in a BIG way this August with their first appearance together in a motion picture, and the most eagerly anticipated new album of their career, IDLEWILD, set for August 22nd release on LaFace/Zomba Music Group.

"Mighty O," first single from IDLEWILD, finds Dré and Big Boi rhyming together on a track for the first time in six years, since OutKast's triple-platinum CD of 2000, Stankonia. "Mighty O" was co-written by Dré and Big Boi and produced by Organized Noize. A second single, the Big Boi solo track "Morris Brown" (featuring Scar and Sleepy Brown), co-written by Dré and Big Boi and produced by Dré for Slum Drum!, features Eddie Ellis conducting the Morris Brown College Band. Impact dates and radio formats for both tracks will be announced in the weeks ahead.

An old-school (real old school) fusion of swing, blues and hip-hop that is still in its final stages of production as of this writing, early indications are that the IDLEWILD album will also include: "The Train" (featuring Scar and Sleepy Brown), co-written by Dré and Big Boi and produced by Big Boi for Boom Boom Room Produc¬tions; "In Your Dreams" (featuring Scar and Janelle Monae, co-written by Dré, pro¬duced by Organized Noize); and "Don't Chu Worry 'Bout Me (Idlewild Blues)," written and produced by Dré). Titles are subject to change; the final album sequence will be announced in the weeks ahead.

Three days after the release of the IDLEWILD album, Universal Pictures and HBO Films will open wide with Idlewild, a Mosaic Media Group and Forensic Films Production starring Antwan Patton and André Benjamin in their first movie together. (They have acted separately, Big Boi in ATL, and Dré in Be Cool and Four Brothers.) Set amidst the backdrop of a 1930s rural Georgia speakeasy known as The Church, the film follows its two lead characters, lifelong friends Percival (Dré), the club's piano player, and Rooster (Big Boi), the club's lead performer and manager, through intersecting stories of love and ambition, in a story fueled by non-stop action, music and showstopping dance numbers.

Idlewild was written and directed by award-winner Bryan Barber (making his feature film debut as a director), a prolific video director over the past four years and close collaborator with OutKast on "Hey Ya," "The Way You Move," "The Whole World," and other clips. Dance sequences were choreographed by legendary three-time Tony winner Hinton Battle.
