Big Bois long-delayed solo album Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty takes one baby step closer to reality with the video for first single Shutterbug. Surely he wouldnt record a video unless he was serious about getting this thing out, right? Right??
The bizarre clip features glow-in-the-dark dancers, a headless Big Boi, and a mountain of giant shoes. With anyone else wed accuse this of being a Lady Gaga ripoff, but Outkast was putting the weird in pop back when Gaga was still Stefani Germanotti. So if Big Boi wants to turn his band members into plush puppets, more power to him.
In other news, last month Big Boi told the BBC that a new Outkast album was brewing. Don’t hold your breath though; he previously said the group would release three records in 2009. He did at least confirm that André 3000 appears on two Sir Luscious tracks.
Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty is slated to drop July 6th. Fingers crossed.
