Prince is plotting a big year. According to E!, Prince is planning to release three new albums in 2009. Likely to be released through an exclusive deal with a major retailer, the new efforts, one of which titled “MPLSOUND,” finds the “Purple Rain” star experimenting with new ways of recording. In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times at his Hollywood Hills home, Prince also talked up new tunes by his protÃ©gÃ©, Bria Valente, and mentioned that he didn’t vote in November because of his religion. Release dates have not been set for any of the singer’s forthcoming projects.
