OutKast are planning to release a new album this autumn.

Billboard reports that the album will be the soundtrack to OutKast's upcoming film, tentatively titled 'My Life in Idlewild'.

OutKast rapper Big Boi said that the soundtrack was "about 80% finished" and stressed that it was a proper OutKast album, which could be enjoyed in its own right.

He also said that a second studio album, 'The Hard 10', could be released before the end of 2006.
