Her first album since 2018’s Dirty Computer, Janelle Monáe has announced that her/their fourth studio album is on the way. Dubbed THE AGE OF PLEASURE, the project is slated to arrive on June 9.
Monaé has also shared the forthcoming album’s second focus track (following “Float“), “Lipstick Lover.” “As we enter into The Age Of Pleasure, ‘Lipstick Lover’ is our freeassmothaf*cka anthem inspired by f.a.m. for f.a.m,” Monaé says. “This is our oasis made with love, rooted in self acceptance, throbbing in self discovery, and signed with cherry red kisses from me to you.”
