The new Outkast album will finally be released in August, three days after the film it soundtracks.

After initially being scheduled for release last year, the album will come out three days after Idlewild hits cinema screens in America on 25 August.

The film stars Outkast’s Andre 3000 and Big Boi – along with fellow musicians Patti LaBelle, Macy Gray and Fishbone's Angelo Moore – and is set in a 1930s ‘Speakeasy’ bar.

A first single from the album – Mighty O – was leaked on the internet earlier this week.
