In an interview with her hometown newspaper the Kansas City Star, Janelle Monáe said she plans to release two new albums next year, her first new music since 2010's The ArchAndroid. Monáe said “84.799 percent of the writing is done for the new records. I will release them according to my soul clock, but I will try to stick the scheduled release dates, which I know but can’t say.” Whether Monáe's soul clock is aligned with regular, non-musical clocks isn't clear, but for now we're assuming next year means 2012 and not "Al past Otis Gaye thirty."
