Big Boi has revealed plans to release a new album titled Boomiverse, the Outkast rapper’s first solo LP since 2012’s Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors.

On Thursday, 4/20, Big Boi will drop a pair of Boomiverse tracks: “Mic Jack,” featuring Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, premieres on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show, while “Kill Jill,” co-starring Big Boi’s Atlanta brethren Killer Mike and Jeezy, arrives Thursday night.

Like Vicious Lies, Boomiverse promises to be an all-star affair, with the rapper hinting on social media that Gucci Mane, Cee Lo Green and unreleased verses from the late UGK rapper Pimp C will appear on the album, Rap-Up reports. A release date for Boomiverse has yet to be announced.

Big Boi last teamed with Phantogram for the 2015 collaboration Big Grams. In 2016, Big Boi said that he and Killer Mike were planning a joint EP, but no further information about that has been announced.

The rapper started teasing his upcoming releases on Instagram Wednesday:
