Oh man. Two for the price of one?!
The supremely talented Janelle Monae recently revealed that not only is she putting the finishing touches on a brand new album, which will drop in 2012, but that she's planning on releasing another to be released in the same year!
According to a new interview:
Word is you're working on the next record. What can you say about it?
I am happy to be here and see my family, and I am eager to get back to the studio and work on finishing my album. I stopped touring so I could finish the album. Actually, I plan on releasing two albums next year.
Any idea when?
I will release them according to my soul clock; so I reserve the right to change that. But I will try to stick to the scheduled release dates, which I know but can't say. I will be thinking about Kansas City and all the people here who have supported me as I continue to write songs that empower, encourage and make you dance.
Will these new records build on the themes you established in your first two recordings?
Again, that's all according to my soul clock. Right now all I can say is, the music comes from the space I'm in.
How far along are you in your writing?
I would say 84.799 percent of the writing is done.
We can't begin to explain how pleased we are to hear this!
This girl is incredible! She just needs a few HITS to really break out!
Here's hoping these new projects will produce some!
