We’re very excited to be hearing some new music from Atlanta’s Janelle Monae, who has been bowling people over left and right for years with her genre-defying music and incredible stage performance. She’s about to release her “debut” record, although she has released previous music independently. Though the record doesn’t come out until May, Pitchfork has a little taste of what’s to come with “Tightrope,” featuring Big Boi, which you can listen to HERE.
Janelle Monae will play two blistering shows in Atlanta at Smith’s Olde Bar on April 5 and 6, and at Black Cat in Washington, D.C. on March 15. Get tickets for all the shows tomorrow at noon at Ticket Alternative.
