The soul singer releases 'Dance Apocalyptic' as she announces her second album's September 10 due date.

As she gears up for a live performance at the 2013 BET Awards on June 30, R'n'B songstress Janelle Monae announced the September 10 release date of her sophomore studio album "The Electric Lady". The 27-year-old songbird's forthcoming LP features the songs "Q.U.E.E.N", her collaboration with the Grammy Award-winning Erykah Badu, as well as the just released "Dance Apocalyptic".

"The Electric Lady" serves as Monae's follow-up to her Grammy nominated debut album, "The ArchAndroid" released back in 2010. Recorded entirely at the singer's Wondaland studio, it includes tracks featuring such artists as the iconic Prince and "Adorn" singer Miguel.

Following the release of lead single "Q.U.E.E.N" last month, Monae released her upcoming album's official second single "Dance Apocalyptic". Apart from the full audio track, the soul singer also unveiled a short 28-second teaser clip announcing the July 2 premiere of the funky track's full music video, as directed by Wendy Morgan and Pierre Rouger.
