Janelle Monae: 'I'm releasing two albums in 2012'

'The ArchAndroid' singer says her 'soul clock' will tell her when to put them out

Janelle Monae has announced that she will release two albums next year.

The Kansas City-born singer told the Back To Rockville blog that she was currently working in the studio on new material, and was aiming to put out two LPs in 2012.

Monae, who released her debut studio album 'The ArchAndroid' in 2010 and was speaking at a Christmas ceremony in her hometown, said:

I am happy to be here and see my family, and I am eager to get back into 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.


Although the 'Tightrope' singer was reluctant to reveal the release dates of either album, she did say that she had completed “84.799 per cent” of the writing and added: "I will release them according to my soul clock. But I will try to stick the scheduled release dates, which I know but can't say."

In June, Monae promised that her new alb...her level" and would boast "very strong concepts and bigger ideas".

The singer – who announced plans to release an instrumental v...chAndroid' earlier this year – enjoyed a huge surge in popularity after her performance at this year's Glastonbury festival. Her album sales jumped by 492...orthy Farm, which was the biggest increase any artist at the festival received.

I hope she reigns it in a bit. She's got great talent and ambition but all that can be waisted if your self-edit button is malfunctioned.

Sounds good, hope she tours again. Her shows I attended this year were among the best I have ever seen.

It would be nice if it was two proper albums and not a new one and this instrumental Archandroid caper. Still, let's wait and see what her "soul clock" rolleyes tells her.

I'm hoping it's that too. The instrumental album can be released for free on her site if she wants. lol But lemme get two proper albums that will require me to give her and the label a few dollars lol

I agree with both of your points.

That's what I'm thinking, I thought The ArchAndroid could have been cut down a bit. But I'll def have be checking out anything she puts out. Say her as an opener twice last year and she always stole the show!

The only female artist i know of that released two albums in one year, is the late great Teena Marie. She released Lady Tee & Irons in the fire in 1980....I never got Janelle until I saw her open 4 Prince in his successful 21 nights gig at The Inglewood Forum here in beautiful Cali4nia. Tnis past summer. She was amazing....


eye will ALWAYS think of prince like a "ACT OF GOD"! N another realm. eye mean of all people who might of been aliens or angels.if found out that prince wasn't of this earth, eye would not have been that surprised. R.I.P. prince
