Now this is some exciting news. It’s been a year since we’ve had an album release from the Kansas ‘Android’ we all know as Janelle Monae – but fans should fear not. The Grammy nominated singer revealed in an interview that she is eager to get back on the music, and is set to put out not one but two new albums in the new year.

“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,” she says.

“I stopped touring so I could finish the album. Actually, I plan on releasing two albums next year. 84.799 percent of the writing is done,” she reveals, adding: “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.”

If her debut album The ArchAndriod is anything to go by, 2012 will be a very good year for Janelle Monae.
