Things We Saw Today: Janelle Monae Drops an Intriguing Trailer for Her New Album Starring Tessa Thompson

Archandroid Cindi Mayweather, a.k.a. Janelle Monae, is back in the form of a new concept album and new visuals/videos featuring TMS’ Queen, Tessa Thompson. Called Dirty Computer, this will be Monae’s third studio album, and see the return of her “time-traveling android messiah” after five long years away. According to io9, “certain screenings of Marvel’s Black Panther will feature a brief Dirty Computer teaser along with what Pitchfork described as ‘film narrative’ about the project.” No release date has been announced yet for the album.

So, if you needed yet another reason to see Black Panther this weekend, now you’ve got one.
