Janelle Monáe’s new album, Dirty Computer, is due at the end of the month. It’s her first since 2013’s The Electric Lady, and we’ve already heard singles “Make Me Feel” and “Django Jane,” both of which came equipped with awesome videos. Since those tracks debuted, we learned that Prince worked on Dirty Computer, and that “Make Me Feel” was one of the songs he had a hand in.

Monáe just debuted a brand new track called “PYNK.” It features Grimes, who Monáe previously collaborated with on Grimes’ Art Angels track “Venus Fly.” Grimes says she contributed harmonies and “vibes” to “PYNK” in an Instagram post:

abt a yr ago janelle played me like 20 songs and asked me which one was my fave and i was like ‘def pynk’ which was the right answer {phew} cuz she wanted some harmonies &vibes on it. as per usual feeling blessed to b in the presence of greatness ‍♀️ luv u J (also beautiful tessa). every one check out the new song and video PYNK !

The accompanying video is described as a celebration:

PYNK is a brash celebration of creation. self love. sexuality. and pussy power! PYNK is the color that unites us all, for pink is the color found in the deepest and darkest nooks and crannies of humans everywhere…

Watch the Emma Westenberg-directed video for “PYNK” below.

Dirty Computer is out 4/27 via Atlantic/Bad Boy.
