I am excited to announced that "Tightrope" is the first single off Janelle Monae's upcoming 'suites,' the Metropolis Suites II & III: The ArchAndroid. In this outstanding collaboration with Outkast's Big Boi, Janelle Monae draws strength from James Brown, Grace Jones and even Andre 3000. Listen to it below:

On Friday, February 12th, "Tightrope", along with another The ArchAndroid track, "Cold War", will go on sale exclusively at Janelle Monae's website. It will be available everywhere on the 23rd of February.

Janelle Monae's The ArchAndroid is the hotly anticipated and long awaited first release since Monae's 2007's Metropolis Suite I of IV: The Chase. According to her official blog, “The ArchAndroid” is an “EMOTION PICTURE” brought to you by Janelle Monáe and the Mad Minds of the Wondaland Arts Society. The star-studded featured cast includes the legendary Big Boi of OutKast, renowned poet Saul Williams, psychedelic dance-punk troupe Of Montreal, punk prophets Deep Cotton, and the Wondaland Arch Orchestra.

I can already tell you now that the of Montreal collaboration is going to be bananas. The ArchAndroid is out on May 18th. Read on for Janelle Monae's tour dates:
