Janelle MonŠe has released the audio for "Primetime," her collaboration with Miguel from her upcoming album, "The Electric Lady."
Target is now accepting pre-orders
for their exclusive, 2 disc edition of Janelle MonŠe's "The Electric Lady." This version adds four tracks
and features an exclusive cover
. The discs are broken up by suite: disc 1 represents Suite IV of her series of ArchAndroid inspired suites, while disc 2 represents Suite V.
On Janelle MonŠe's website, you can pre-order her upcoming album
, "The Electric Lady," and receive a limited edition color vinyl single of "Q.U.E.E.N." Along with the special 7-inch black and white vinyl, you will also receive the digital album when it is released, MP3 downloads of "Q.U.E.E.N." and "Dance Apocalyptic" immediately, a 20% discount on the vinyl release of "The Electric Lady" and access to pre-sale tickets for her upcoming fall tour.
That bundle is priced at $14.99, plus shipping and tax. For $5 more, the CD release
can also be included.
I pre-ordered the bundle myself and was presented with downloads for the MP3s and both the tour pre-sale and discount information. Unfortunately, the link to the discount information was simply the tour pre-sale information. Hopefully that will be fixed.
