Janelle Monae returns with new single 'Turntables'

Having stayed largely quiet since the release of her brilliant 2018 LP 'Dirty Computer', Janelle Monae is now back with a brand new single.

The new track 'Turntables' is her first piece of original material in two years, and will feature in the upcoming Amazon Studios documentary, 'All In: The Fight For Democracy', which will be streaming exclusively via Amazon Prime Video from Friday 18th September.

'All In: The Fight for Democracy' examines the often overlooked, yet insidious issue of voter suppression in the United States in anticipation of the 2020 Presidential Election. Directed by Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning filmmaker Liz Garbus and Oscar-nominated and Emmy-nominated filmmaker Lisa Cortés, and produced by Garbus, Cortés, Academy Award-winning producer Dan Cogan and Stacey Abrams, the film interweaves personal experiences with current activism and historical insight to expose a problem that has corrupted our democracy from the very beginning. With the perspective and expertise of Stacey Abrams, the former Minority Leader of the Georgia House of Representatives and founder of voter suppression advocacy group Fair Fight Action, 'All In: The Fight for Democracy' will offer an insider’s look into laws and barriers to voting that most people don’t even know is a threat to their basic rights as citizens of the United States.
