Calling all Androids! The cat is out of the bag and meowing like mad now as Janelle Monáe's hotly anticipated, The Electric Lady: Suites IV + V can now be taken down stream for a listen...or two thousand listens. For those who've Rip Van Winkled their way through the last couple of months should be aware that The Electric Lady features a roster of stunner guest stars such as Miguel, Esperanza Spalding, Solange, and his Purple Majesty Prince, as well as has even more Android-ness funk and spunk in its formula. Yours truly hasn't taken in all of the album (I'm a stickler of having the album either in my hands or downloaded to my harddrive in order for full digestion), but curiosity got the better of me as I gave the album a slight run through and can report with confidence that Monáe is dead serious about the art called music and she has made an album that stands toe-to-toe with her masterful The ArchAndroid.
If patience also isn't a virtue for you, then clear out the rest of your day, and check after the cut to hear The Electric Lady in full before the album is released next week on September 9th.
