Janelle Monáe shares new single "Lipstick Lover" alongside the announcement of her fifth studio album, The Age of Pleasure.

"Lipstick Lover" comes with a video directed by Janelle Monáe and Alan Ferguson. The single follows "Float" feat. Seun Kuti + Egypt 80.

The forthcoming album, The Age of Pleasure, will follow 2018's Dirty Computer which featured "I Got the Juice" featuring Pharrell Williams.

Of the album, Monáe says: "As we enter into The Age Of Pleasure, ‘Lipstick Lover’ is our freeassmothafucka anthem inspired by f.a.m. for f.a.m. This is our oasis made with love, rooted in self-acceptance, throbbing in self-discovery, and signed with cherry red kisses from me to you”.

"Lipstick Lover" is out now. The Age of Pleasure arrives on 9 June via Wondaland Arts Society/Atlantic Records, and is available to pre-order now.
