Janelle Monáe follows 2012’s The Electric Lady with Dirty Computer. The album inspired by her late mentor, Prince, features appearances from Brian Wilson (“Dirty Computer”), Zoe Kravitz (“Screwed”), Grimes (“PYNK”) and Pharell Williams (“I Got The Juice”).
“Prince was actually working on the album with me before he passed on to another frequency, and helped me come up with some sounds,” Monáe told BBC. “I really miss him, you know, it’s hard for me to talk about him. But I do miss him, and his spirit will never leave me.”
In support of the album, Monáe will embark on “The Dirty Computer” North American tour, running this summer from Jun. 11 – Aug. 4.
