GRAMMY® Award-nominated singer-songwriter-performer-producer-actress-activist Janelle Monáe has unveiled the striking companion visual for the shimmering track, “Crazy Classic Life.” The stand-alone video features visuals from her emotion picture, DIRTY COMPUTER. “Crazy Classic Life” is now streaming at Janelle’s official YouTube channel.
Janelle Monáe shares a special note with her fans:
“It’s the end of an electric year. And I’m so very thankful for so many things. So very thankful for all of you that have helped the Dirty Computer album become a movement of love around the world. In this spirit of thankfulness, I’ve decided to share one of my favorite things from this year with you: the standalone visuals for CRAZY CLASSIC LIFE from the DIRTY COMPUTER emotion picture. This video was so incredibly fun to make because director Alan Ferguson brought all my hovercar dreams to life! And I had a world of fun with the Django Janes and Zen (played by the incomparable Tessa Thompson) and Che off in the future, dancing while changing the world. This one is for all the dirty computers out there! Never forget, “We are not America’s nightmare, we are the American dream.”
The newly released video arrives on the heels of Monáe’s two GRAMMY nominations. Her critically-acclaimed third album project, DIRTY COMPUTER, received the coveted Album Of The Year nomination, alongside a nomination for Best Music Video for “PYNK.”
