Kamasi Washington and André 3000 Collaborate on New Song ‘Dream State’

Kamasi Washington has released a new song, ‘Dream State’, featuring André 3000 on flute. It’s lifted from his new album, Fearless Movement, which also includes contributions from Thundercat, Terrace Martin, Patrice Quinn, vocalists George Clinton, BJ the Chicago Kid, and D Smoke, and others. Listen to ‘Dream State’ below.

“When you receive a text from a wind friend something beautiful usually transpires,” André 3000 shared in a statement. “The day Kamasi invited me to a session for Fearless Movement I was so geeked and honored. Now, every time we get together something interesting happens. We first played during a recording session for New Blue Sun and it’s been fruitful ever since.”

“‘Dream State’ is a celebration of life and the opportunity it gives us to explore new possibilities,” Washington added. “We created this song together instantaneously as we improvised off the music we made in the moment. It was such an honor to work on this song with one of my heroes, the great André 3000. And what an amazing experience André 3000, Brandon Coleman, Tony Austin, Mono/Poly and I had gliding freely through this world of sound not knowing where we would end up, but joyful in the journey itself.”

Fearless Movement is slated for released on May 3 via Young. It was led by the closing track ‘Prologue’.
