Janelle Monae Preps New Album with ‘Very Strong Concepts and Bigger Ideas’

Janelle Monae is back at work on a new project. The R&B songstress is, who is currently touring with Bruno Mars on their ‘Hooligans in Wondaland’ trek, confirmed to MTV Hives that she has been “recording, writing, [and] playing instruments” for her sophomore effort.

The set, which is the follow-up to her critically acclaimed 2010 debut ‘The ArchAndroid,’ will be larger in scope and ideas in comparison to its predecessor.

“This album will have very strong concepts and bigger ideas and the music will just go forward to another level,” Monáe tells Hive. “It will still be, I believe, relatable to the people. We have really big ideas, I must say, and we’re just trying to make sure we execute them properly.”

Monae’s current tour wraps in a week (June 15) at Comerica Theatre in Phoenix, AZ.
