[Fresh Music] Janelle Monae – PYNK​

Psychedelic soul and indie pop/rap artist Janelle Monáe has just premiered a new song from her forthcoming album and film project Dirty Computer. Premiered along with a music video starring Tessa Thompson and directed by Emma Westenberg, her new single titled “PYNK” is a collaboration with Synth-Pop/Electronica artist Grimes and follows the February releases of her singles “Make Me Feel” and “Django Jane”.

Musically, the song has clear themes of the female anatomy, sexuality, as well as lesbian and bi-sexual friendly lyrics. These themes are complimented by cherry pop vocals underlined by a hybrid electronica and R&B influenced instrumental along with spoken word segments and a soulful bridge. Monáe had this to say about the song:

“… pink is the color found in the deepest and darkest nooks and crannies of humans everywhere… PYNK is where the future is born…”

Dirty Computer has been described by Janelle as both an album and as an “E-Motion Picture” “ a narrative film and accompanying musical album”. Dirty Computer is set to release April 27th this year. ​
