I almost missed this one during the chaos that was my mini-vacation over the weekend. I’m glad I didn’t.
Click above to watch the official video for Janelle Monae‘s “Cold War,” one of my favorite tracks off of the singer’s incredible debut record, The ArchAndroid.
The video requires very little explanation, though I do want to include this quote found in the press release:
“‘The ‘Cold War’ music video was filmed in the black box auditorium at The Palace of the Dogs sanitarium. This is the complete first take. This performance is unaltered and unencumbered, as those of us in attendance on that day experienced it.”â€¬ –Wendy Morgan (Director) and The Wondaland Arts Society
