Janelle Monáe unveils Pharrell and Brian Wilson-featuring tracklist for new album ‘Dirty Computer’

The musician will release her third studio LP on Friday (April 27), and has directed fans to her website to learn more about the new songs

Janelle Monáe has shared the full tracklist for her imminent new album ‘Dirty Computer’, revealing collaborations with the likes of Pharrell and Brian Wilson.

Monáe’s third studio album will hit shelves on Friday (April 27), and will mark her first full-length LP release since September 2013’s ‘The Electric Lady’. The musician previously explained that the five-year gap between albums was largely a consequence of the death of her close friend Prince in 2016.

Monáe has now unveiled the tracklist for ‘Dirty Computer’, revealing collaborations with the likes of Pharrell (on ‘I Got The Juice’), Wilson (‘Dirty Computer), and Zoë Kravitz (‘Screwed’). Check out the full tracklist below.
