All hail the mighty Purple Man!
Music icon Prince will release two new studio albums on September 30, 2014; the solo project ART OFFICIAL AGE and PLECTRUMELECTRUM by his new band 3RDEYEGIRL.
Both projects will be released on Warner Bros. Records, Prince’s original label home before declaring his independence. Prince and Warner Bros’ new partnership also see him taking full ownership of his '80s albums, including Dirty Mind, 1999, Purple Rain and Sign 'O' the Times.
"Prince is one of just a handful of visionary artists who have truly reshaped and redefined modern music and culture," said Warner Bros. Records Chairman & CEO Cameron Strang. "For the past 35 years, he has never stopped evolving, challenging himself, reinventing his sound, and pushing boundaries. In true Prince fashion, he has just given us not one, but two extraordinary albums that express the incredible range and depth of his talent. All of us at WBR are immensely proud to be working with Prince to bring this brilliant new music to his legions of fans around the world, and needless to say we are thrilled to be working in partnership with him again."
