This week, the incredible and brightly unique Janelle Monáe releases ‘Cold War’ as the second single from her current album ‘The ArchAndroid’.
The track is immense and has everything you need in a song… sonically, it’s humongous, the production is grand and impressive, Janelle’s delivers a soaring impassioned vocal performance and the lyrical content is thought provoking and empowering. It’s utterly gorgeous and completely brilliant…
The video for the track is also rather clever… it’s both simple and highly effective and also leaves a lasting impression.
Here, Janelle and the producers of ‘Cold War’ talk about the inspiration and the different forms of the track.
In December, Janelle will play two UK shows, tickets go on sale from Friday 1st October from 9am.
Sunday 5th December – O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, London
Monday 6th December – Academy 2, Manchester
