The LP will feature singles “Lipstick Lover” and “Float”, featuring Seun Kuti and Egypy 80′ as well as collaborations with Grace Jones, Doechii and Sister Nancy.

Monáe recently opened up about the personal inspiration behind her single “Lipstick Lover” and it’s music video, which is a joyous celebration of queer Black sexual liberation.

The video, which, according to Monáe, was “inspired by my f.a.m., made with my f.a.m, for my f.a.m.”, kicks off with the singer receiving a kiss-of-life at the poolside from another woman.

“I have a whole spreadsheet with 50 to almost 100 experiences that I had at this party,” she reminisced to Rolling Stone about her own wild party days. “I’ve been a lipstick lover. I wear red lipsticks at the parties. I’ve had moments where if me and a girl or an energy [using gender-neutral language] want to engage, you’re going to see lipstick.”

“I remember how it felt when I got kissed on my neck with red lipstick. I remember how I went to bed feeling. It was a deep rouge. It wasn’t matte. I remember the way the person looked. And I was like, ‘That’s a f**king song’.”
