Arriving on the heels of her showstopping Met Gala appearance, “Lipstick
Lover” heralds the arrival of Monáe’s hugely anticipated new album, THE
AGE OF PLEASURE, due out June 9th. Pre-orders/pre-saves –
including limited edition vinyl – are available now HERE.
THE AGE OF PLEASURE also includes the
acclaimed new single, “Float (Feat. Seun Kuti + Egypt 80).” Hailed by Pitchfork as “swaggering,
brass-heavy…the sound of a top-tier talent doing a little victory dance,”
the track is joined by an official dance video streaming on YouTube.
To celebrate the launch of this new era, Monáe graced the March cover
of EBONY Magazine, which stated, “the singer-songwriter returns to music
as their fullest self…we’re perhaps witnessing the queerest, and by
association, the Blackest, of Monáe’s eras yet…”
“Float” – which Monáe initially teased on her hugely popular Instagram – was first heard late last year as the official anthem of
ABC/ESPN’s NBA Saturday Primetime campaign, with Janelle contributing voiceover
narration to promo spots highlighting the biggest matchups and stars in the
league. The track was used extensively throughout all NBA coverage through
mid-March, spanning promos, Primetime matchups, in-game placement, social
media, and more. In addition, “Float” was featured in an animated piece marking
Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James surpassing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for
the #1 spot on the NBA’s all-time regular-season scoring list, shared across
ESPN’s socials and James’ Instagram to reach more than 275M combined followers.
