Janelle Monáe has released a new anthem, titled ‘Turntables,’ for the upcoming Amazon Studios documentary, ‘All In: The Fight for Democracy.’

The soul-funk record is a political anthem that sees Monáe sings of a new dream, liberation and spreading enlightenment. It marks the singer’s first release of new music since 2018’s critically acclaimed ‘Dirty Computer.’

Rapping on the track, Monáe declares:

“Got a new agenda, with a new dream/I’m kickin’ out the old regime/Liberation, elevation, education.”

Speaking with Apple Music, the performer shared:

“I’m simply watching, examining and wanting to highlight all of the people who are on the front lines, fighting for our democracy, fighting against racial inequalities, fighting against white supremacy, fighting against systemic racism and systemic oppression.

This song is to keep us motivated. This song is to lift up and keep us galvanized when we’re fatigued. And this song is really for the people.”


‘All In: The Fight For Democracy’ lands in selected theatres September 9th and comes to Amazon Prime on September 18th.
