The album is actually just one part of Dirty Computer, which is described as an "emotion picture... a narrative film and accompanying musical album." Monáe has shared a trailer (also starring Tessa Thompson) previewing both elements, and you can check it out below.

Dirty Computer doesn't have a release date yet, but a proper trailer is due to air "in select theatres" ahead of Black Panther screenings.

This is set to be the first new material from Monáe since her EP Wondaland Presents: The Eephus which featured a bunch of artists signed to her label - including Jidenna and St. Beauty.
