The often-reclusive André 3000 surprised his fans on Sunday (May 13), when he delivered two heartfelt tracks in the form of “Me&My (To Bury Your Parents)” and “Look Ma No Hands.”

The first of those songs, “Me&My,” is a piano-laden reflection on childhood. “Me and my mother drivin’ to the grocery store, me ridin’ shotgun with my window rolled down,” he sings. “Me and my father driving to the football game / Me ridin’ shotgun my window rolled down / He sipped cognac and kept us all laughin’ / I was much happier when he was around.”

The second track, “Look Ma No Hands,” is a clarinet and piano instrumental. Three Stacks played the bass clarinet on this 17-minute song, while James Blake handled the keys.

Questlove pointed out that the songs are even more touching once one understands the personal story behind them. “So #Andre3000 shares a song on Mother’s Day about his mom who passed on his bday…& his dad who passed a year later and damn man this his heartbreakingly amazing,” wrote The Roots drummer.
