He also revealed that both he and André 3000 would be releasing solo projects prior to any Outkast project.[4] On May 27, 2012, Big Boi announced that the album would be entitled Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors[5] On June 9, 2012, Big Boi announced via Twitter that the album would be released on November 13, 2012.[6] However, on November 1, 2012, after revealing the cover art, the album was pushed back to December 11, 2012.[7]
