After
almost seven years of silence, OutKast co-founder Big Boi will release his first
solo project since the duo’s 11-times platinum 2003 release, “Speakerboxxx/The
Love Below.” His latest, “Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of
Chico Dusty’ will hit
stores June 6.

Otherwise
known as Antwan Andre Patton, Big Boi took his time in the studio — four years
actually — to craft ‘Sir Lucious Left Foot,’ which will be his first release
with Def
Jam. The first single from the
upcoming release, “ShutterBugg,”
a
synth-heavy dance march,

can be streamed by clicking
 
here,
and another single “Follow Us,” can be downloaded for free by clicking

Outside of a performance announced at the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago, no tour dates have been announced.  For more info on Big Boi, visit http://www.islanddefjam.com.
