It seems like it’s been eons since her fabulous EP debut, but Janelle Monáe‘s debut is finally bracing for landing: The ArchAndroid, Janelle’s first full-length LP, will be released on May 18, 2010.

In honor of the announcement, Monae is releasing two new tracks for world consumption right now: “Tightrope (ft. Big Boi)” and “Cold War,” both of which can be found for download and full stream on her official website now.

While “Tightrope” is nice and all, “Cold War” is where it’s truly at. The song is an absolute killer!

In the meantime, the funky fresh cyborg princess will be embarking on a US tour in March and April. Check below to see if Janelle’s coming through your area!
