Janelle Monae is releasing her third studio album - and a narrative film along with the collection! Monae tells the L.A. Times the synopsis of the trailer is that "they drained us of our dirt and all the things that made us special".

The singer stars alongside actress Tessa Thompson in a trailer for the futuristic film, which will air ahead of Black Panther screenings in select theaters this weekend.

During that time, Monae focused on her acting career, appearing on Academy Award-nominated movies Moonlight and Hidden Figures.

Janelle Monáe has confirmed early details of her follow up to 2013 album The Electric Lady. Now, she is working on The Women of Marwen with Steve Carell and Leslie Mann.

There's been no word on an official release date for her album, but sources tell Variety that the 32-year-old has held secret listening parties in NY and Los Angeles so the finished tape must be ready to go sooner than later.

"Tonight I am proud to stand in solidarity, not just as an artist, but a young woman with my fellow sisters in this room who make up the music industry", she said. We come in peace, but we mean business.
