Janelle Monae Releasing Instrumental Version Of ‘The ArchAndroid’

    Anyone aching for a follow up to Janelle Monae’s excellent The ArchAndroid album of last year will have to wait a little longer. The singer has posted on Twitter to say that “new music is/has been done,” but her first priority is to release an instrumental version of her 2010 release. “I am releasing an instrumental album of The ArchAndroid. More details to follow,” she tweeted. There’s also news of a collaborative effort featuring Monae and Estelle; the two singers will join forces with Rick Ross and Common for a song from Estelle’s forthcoming All of Me record, which may go some way to satisfying folks clamoring for post-ArchAndroid material.
