Janelle Monáe Announces 'Dirty Computer' Album & Film

The Atlanta-based songbird is prepping the release of her third album and narrative film titled Dirty Computer.

It's been a minute since we've received a musical offering from Janelle Monae as the multifaced artist has been killing it in Hollywood with roles in Hidden Figures and Moonlight.

The singer stars alongside actress Tessa Thompson in a trailer for the futuristic film, which will air ahead of Black Panther screenings in select theaters this weekend. Now, she is working on The Women of Marwen with Steve Carell and Leslie Mann.




No release date has been set as of this writing but sources told Variety that Monae held secret listening sessions in venues in NY and Los Angeles.

Monae was at the 2018 Grammy Awards last month to introduce a performance by Kesha. "We are also daughters, wives, mothers, sisters, and human beings".

The 32-year-old "Dance Apocalyptic" entertainer unveiled the special trailer for her project, called Dirty Computer, on Friday (February 16). To those who would dare try and silence us, we offer you two words: #Timesup.
