The entire standard album is up for streaming over on >VH1< It’s genuinely a masterpiece of music and I highly recommend a thorough listening. It tells an incredible story with hugely relevant (and cleverly conveyed) messages at its core. Plus, listening to it will give a lot of context to the paintings — both mood and narrative.
Janelle Monáe’s “The Electric Lady” Album Artwork (Standard + Target Edition) - By Sam Spratt
I’m extremely excited to finally get to share this project. Despite just being two album covers, they’re the product of over 2 months worth of research, countless revisions, built and scratched concepts, working directly with Janelle Monáe and Atlantic Records, to evolve the artwork from sketches to finished paintings alongside her ever-evolving music and image. She’s Grammy-nominated, a Cover Girl, but more so just one of the most mind-blowingly intelligent and talented people I’ve been able to work with and encourage you to check her music out if you haven’t heard of her.
