Janelle Monáe just blessed us with another song.
Fresh off her Dirty Computer world tour, the artist recorded a soft and soulful rendition of Bob Marley and The Wailer’s 1975 song “High Tide Or Low Tide” at Spotify Studios in New York City.
The Spotify session also included a live version of her track, “I Like That” off her multi-disciplinary album, Dirty Computer released in April.
Monáe will also appear in an upcoming Harriet Tubman biopic, Harriet, alongside British actress Cynthia Erivo who will play Tubman. She’ll also have a voice role and record original music for the upcoming animated feature UglyDolls, and will appear in Robert Zemeckis’s Welcome to Marwen film starring Steve Carrell.
Listen to her Marley cover below.
