Pretty exciting news! This will be Janelle Monáe’s first full-length album in five years. The release date hasn’t been announced yet, but the album will feature an “emotion picture” narrative film project that will be released in select theaters before the opening of “Black Panther.”
“Monae never does anything by half, and while the teaser gives little indication about the storyline behind the film—the clip is an odd mix including flashes of love, totalitarianism, club scenes, and a wild-looking floating car—it is compelling and ties into the futurist themes that Monae has used during her entire recording career.”
About effing time.
She’s getting into AOTY with this new album, mark my words.
Obsessed with “Django Jane”! Hope that’s up for Short-Form Music Video, among many others. Excellent first two songs!
The first two songs and videos are excellent and the new album drops 4/27.
This should be a great era.
