Andre 3000 debuted some new music in the wee hours of Sunday morning, and the two surprise tracks have a timely message: Happy Mother's Day!

A rather surprising turn of events over the weekend has seen a collaboration between Andre 3000 (yes, THE Andre 3000) and British singer/songwriter/producer James Blake. This song was written before his parents died, but recorded three years ago after they both passed away, according to Pitchfork. André's mother Sharon Benjamin-Hodo died one day after his birthday in 2013.

For someone who has lost their mother, Mother's Day can take you to a sunken place. "I'm sure all the cards, dinners, flowers and last minute gifts are appreciated but I've learned the best gift a parent could get is to simply know their child is ok". "Me&My" shows off 3000's incredibly underrated singing voice, while "Look Ma No Hands" is a straight up jazz piece that stretches just over 17 minutes in length.

US Not Ruling Sanctions Against EU Companies for Cooperating With Iran - Bolton
As a private citizen, Bolton in the past has suggested that the United States push for a change in Iran's government. Bolton said on ABC's "This Week".

Andre made several guest appearances in 2016, notably with Frank Ocean, Kanye West, Solange and A Tribe Called Quest; his most recent was on N.E.R.D's "Rollinem 7's" late a year ago.

Other posts include the handwritten lyrics to "Me&My", a note about "Look Ma No Hands" composition, and a quick series of screenshots from the last few text messages he received from his mother before she passed, a mundane exchange between the pair about Andre's sons' brotherly squabbles and an admonition to "be careful in ALL things".
