Janelle Monáe, 37 has announced that she is working on a new album, the follow-up to her critically acclaimed 2018 release “Dirty Computer.”
In an interview with NME, the black singer and songwriter joked that she has a clone working in the studio on her music while she focuses on her acting career.
She also spoke about the challenges she faced while recording “Dirty Computer,” including anxiety attacks brought on by the political climate in the US during the presidency of Donald Trump.
Monáe also revealed that she had been working with the late music icon Prince on the album before his death in 2016. She said that after his passing, she felt a responsibility to finish the album and often asked herself “What would Prince do?” while writing and recording.
