September 10 can't get here fast enough, y'all. That's the day that Janelle Monae drops Suites IV-V of her ArchAndroid saga, also known as her new album The Electric Lady. Monae has just released the cover artwork and tracklisting for the album and (as if collaborations with Prince, Miguel and Erykah Badu weren't enough) it will feature Solange on the eponymous track and Dungeon Family cohorts Cee Lo and Big Boi on a remix.
The Electric Lady tracklist (via):
1. Suite IV Electric Overture
2. Givin Em What They Love featuring Prince
3. Q.U.E.E.N. featuring Erykah Badu
4. Electric Lady featuring Solange
5. Good Morning Midnight (Interlude)
6. Primetime featuring Miguel
7. We Were Rock and Roll
8. The Chrome Shoppe (Interlude)
9. Dance Apocalyptic
10. Look Into My Eyes
12. Suite V Electric Overture
13. It's Code
14. Ghetto Woman
15. Our Favorite Fugitive (Interlude)
17. Can't Live Without Your Love
18. Sally Ride
19. Dorothy Dandridge Eyes featuring Esperanza Spalding
20. What An Experience
21. Q.U.E.E.N. featuring Erykah Badu [Wondamix]
22. Electric Lady featuring Big Boi and Cee-Lo Green [Dungeon-Wondamix]

We've heard snippets of "Dorothy Dandrige Eyes" at Monae's live shows, but the full version with Esperanza Spalding should be spectacular.
The real news, however, is a Prince collaboration titled "Give Them What They Love." I'm sweatin' already.
What do you think of the cover art/ tracklist for The Electric Lady?
