Janelle Monáe Releases The ArchAndroid & Giant Step Presents A Special Performance at Highline Ballroom

The long-anticipated album from Janelle Monáe will be released tomorrow: The ArchAndroid. If you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t seen it yet, check out the video for “Tightrope” here.

These photos were taken at last week’s SVEDKA Miami release party for The ArchAndroid, hosted by Janelle Monáe. And tomorrow night, to celebrate her new release, Ms. Monáe will give a very special performance at Highline Ballroom (NYC) with DJ Moni. It will be a magical evening in Metropolis, so we hope you can make it. If you didn’t RSVP in time, try your luck in the contest for free tickets — quick.
