Surprise - there's a new Janelle Monae video

It's over a year since Janelle Monae released her fun-packed Electric Lady album, and nine months since she last released a single, so it's a welcome surprise to discover a new video for the title track on her YouTube channel this morning.

Eschewing all the high-concept "fembot revolutionary" shenanigans of her previous videos, this one's just a straight-up technicolor dance clip.

And it's a blast.

Nice to see the return of the Human Skull Turntable from the Q.U.E.E.N. video, which I would be more than happy to look after once the record label has finished with it.

Oh, and while we're here, here's an all-star remix of the song, featuring Cee-Lo, Solange and Big Boi. Only available on the US deluxe edition of the album, unfortunately.
