Andre 3000 Shares New Details On Flute Skills


During a recent interview with CBS Mornings, Andre 3000 opened up about the process of creating his instrumental album, New Blue Sun. While he’s spent a fair chunk of time perfecting his flute skills, the hitmaker revealed that he’s not even sure what notes he’s playing. Regardless, he hasn’t let that get in the way of his experimentation with new sounds.

“I’ve gotten so used to it I kinda have a muscle memory of holding [the flute],” he explained, revealing that he feels lost without the instrument nowadays. “When I’m walking with people that’s what they say, ‘I feel like I’m in my movie.’” Though he isn’t a trained musician, the Atlanta native manages to stumble upon greatness as he plays, enjoying how new the whole process feels to him.

“I don’t even know what notes I’m playing so every move for me is new,” he says. “Which is kinda cr*zy but it feels great to do it. Because when you find things you’re like, ‘Oh!’” Andre 3000 went on to describe how hip hop has paved the way for his passion for finding new and interesting sounds. “It’s like a reward for searching,” he explained. “I think that’s a Hip Hop thing, to be honest. Because Hip Hop you immediately take something in and put it back out.”
