The Return of Janelle Monáe!

February 15, 2010

Janelle Monáe is back for the masses.  (Although, the truth is she never left.)  I saw Janelle belt out her new single “Tightrope” during the Afro Punk Festival in Brooklyn, NYC last year showcasing the old school quality of her voice that could easily make her your new favorite artist.   “Tightrope” is now available for download and features Big Boi of Outkast.  Not to tease her fans with only one new single, also available for download  is the futuristic high velocity “Cold War”.

Her debut album, The Archandroid, is scheduled to be released on May 18th.  I’m anticipating the continuation of the sci-fi adventures of Cindi Mayweather, a cyborg who is on the run in Metropolis for breaking the rules and falling in love with a human.  Get your hands on Janelle’s 2008 EP, Metropolis (Suite I: The Chase) for the introduction of the chase.  Songs with a sci-fi storyline?  Why not!

This is a true artist.  One who is creative and can seriously blow.  If she’s in your city, check her out.  The sheer raw energy of her performances alone will keep you entranced.  Have a look at her website for upcoming appearances.  I guarantee you that I’ll be at one (or two) of these shows sporting my Janelle T-shirt.
