Stream OutKast's forthcoming soundtrack for their upcoming film Idlewild from Outkast's MySpace. The album will officially launch on August 22, the film (which is set in the 1930s) releases three days later. The first single ’Mighty O’ is reportedly based around a famous scatting sample from Cab Calloway’s ’Minnie the Moocher’.

The music will be fitting for a movie about running a speakeasy, OutKast said, but still in the band’s usual style. "It’s hip-hop. It’s OutKast," Big Boi said. "It is what we’ve been doing for years. Some songs have a little more piano or whatever, but the whole project was a natural progression from a double cd."

Stream the album.
