Outkast to release 20th anniversary edition of ‘Stankonia’
‘Stankonia’ will be available digitally in 360 Reality Audio and 24 Bit on Oct. 30.
This Halloween will mark 20 years since Outkast released their classic album Stankonia. The duo will commemorate the LP’s release by dropping something special for their fans.
On Friday (Oct. 30), Outkast’s fourth studio album will be updated with unreleased remixes. Sony Music announced on Thursday (Oct. 8) that they will release streaming bundles and new vinyl and digital download editions of the critically acclaimed project.
Stankonia featured the hit singles “So Fresh, So Clean,” “Miss Jackson” and “B.O.B.” — which all went platinum. The LP peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and spent 46 weeks on the chart, despite selling 530,000 copies in its first week.
At the 2002 Grammy Awards, the album took home the award for Best Rap Album. “Ms. Jackson” earned a Grammy for Best Rap Performance By a Duo or Group. Stankonia was also up for Album of the Year, but lost to the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack.
According to Variety, the digital re-release will feature “six bonus tracks, including a previously unreleased remix of ‘B.O.B’ by Rage Against the Machine’s Zack de la Rocha. Other bonus tracks on the expanded digital version: a remix of ‘Ms. Jackson’ by Mr. Drunk, a remix of ‘So Fresh, So Clean’ featuring Snoop Dogg and Sleepy Brown.” There will also be a cappella versions of the aforementioned tracks.
Outkast has not put out any music since they dropped their 2006 project, Idlewild, but both men are still doing well. Big Boi recently appeared on an episode of “Celebrity Family Feud.” His family went head-to-head against 2 Chainz’s family. Ultimately, the “It’s A Vibe” emcee won the $25,000 prize — which will be donated to the T.R.U. Foundation.
André 3000 has been spotted multiple times around Los Angeles and Georgia playing his flute. He recently spoke to journalist Mike Ayers and revealed how Prince’s “Sometimes It Snows In April” is the last song he wants to hear before he passes away.
