Prince does everything bigger and better.
The Purple One will release not one, but two (!!!) brand new studio albums globally via Warner Bros. Records on September 30.
The titles are ART OFFICIAL AGE, a solo album, and PLECTRUMELECTRUM, which is an album by his new band 3RDEYEGIRL.
Both albums, which are sold separately, are now available for pre-order via digital retailers and at artofficialage.com.
Early buyers will be able to unlock "instant grat" tracks from each record. The album releases will also be marked by a series of very special events taking place globally, with more info forthcoming.
ART OFFICIAL AGE is a classic Prince album, produced, arranged, composed and performed by Prince and Joshua Welton. Sonically, the record is a contemporary concoction of soul, R&B and funk. The melodies are immediate and prominent as ever and Prince's vocals are rich and solid, taking full advantage of his vocal range with decidedly, seductive lyrics.
PLECTRUMELECTRUM is a classic band record, with 3RDEYEGIRL which includes Prince, Donna Grantis (guitar), Hannah Ford Welton (drums) and Ida Nielsen (bass). Recorded live and in analog the album is an electrifying funk-rock statement.
