Just days after teasing new single “Lipstick Lover,” Janelle Monáe has made the song available for fans’ consumption. The track premieres alongside a music video that the star directed alongside Alan Ferguson and will appear on her album, The Age of Pleasure, due out June 9.

“As we enter into The Age Of Pleasure, ‘Lipstick Lover’ is our freea**mothaf**** anthem inspired by f.a.m. for f.a.m,” the singer says in a statement. “This is our oasis made with love, rooted in self acceptance, throbbing in self discovery, and signed with cherry red kisses from me to you.”

“Lipstick Lover” marks the second single on Janelle’s upcoming album, following “Float” with Seun Kuti & Egypt 80.
