The 9-time Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, producer, performer, activist, and fashion icon returns with her striking new song ‘Turntables’. Most known worldwide for her unique style and visionary sound, which celebrates the spectrum of identity, she is also a humanitarian.
‘Turntables’ was written for the upcoming Amazon Studios documentary, All In: The Fight For Democracy, which is being released on Friday, September 18th exclusively on Amazon Prime. 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. The film interweaves personal experiences with current activism and historical insight to expose a problem that has corrupted our democracy for years.
The powerful anthem, written by Monáe, Nathaniel Irvin III, and George A. Peters, is Monae’s newest original piece of music since her 2018 DIRTY COMPUTER album.
The visual companion, which you can watch below here, features Monae singing in front of the American flag with various flashbacks to the recent Black Lives Matter and pride protests.
“I’m kickin out the old regime
Liberation, Elevation, Education
You a lie”, she sings.
