Limited edition clear vinyl 2LP

Part of Atlantic Records' 75th Anniversary vinyl collection

Janelle Monáe's The Electric Lady album is pressed on two clear LPs and is a one-time pressing. This vinyl is a part of Atlantic Records' 75th Anniversary vinyl collection.

The Electric Lady quickly garnered universal acclaim from music critics upon its 2013 release. Multi-talented artist Janelle Monáe once again showcases her distinctive blend of futuristic funk, R&B, and soul, with this album, which serves as the fourth and fifth installments of her seven-part Metropolis concept series. Partly inspired by the 1927 film of the same name, the series involves the fictional tale of Cindi Mayweather, a messianic android sent back in time to free the citizens of Metropolis from The Great Divide, a secret society that uses time travel to suppress freedom and love.

Monáe's powerhouse vocals and electrifying stage presence shine throughout, commanding attention and inviting listeners to embark on a sonic journey like no other.

The Electric Lady features an impressive lineup of guest artists, including Prince, Erykah Badu, Solange Knowles, and Miguel. Their collaborations add depth and variety to the album, enriching the already lush sonic landscape. Monáe's creative synergy with these artists results in unforgettable tracks such as the funky anthem "Q.U.E.E.N." with Erykah Badu and the sensual ballad "PrimeTime" with Miguel.

Thematically, The Electric Lady tackles a range of social and personal issues, with Monáe using her platform to address topics such as identity, feminism, and the struggle for freedom and equality. Songs like "Dance Apocalyptic" and "Electric Lady" celebrate self-expression and individuality, while tracks like "Ghetto Woman" and "Dorothy Dandridge Eyes" pay homage to influential figures and explore themes of empowerment and resilience.

With its captivating blend of genres, imaginative storytelling, and social consciousness, The Electric Lady cements Janelle Monáe's status as a groundbreaking artist. It stands as a testament to her commitment to pushing artistic boundaries, challenging societal norms, and championing inclusivity.
