NEW MUSIC FROM PRINCE TO BE RELEASED IN SEPTEMBER
Prince’s estate announced today on his birthday that it is prepping a new album of previously unreleased home recordings, Piano and a Microphone 1983, set to arrive on September 21st.
The record includes a cover of Joni Mitchell’s "A Case of You" and prototype sessions of "Purple Rain" and "Strange Relationship." Also on the album is a recording of Prince skeletally, beautifully interpreting the spiritual "Mary Don't You Weep." Over tumbling blues piano, Prince, veering from his crystalline falsetto to that always-surprising baritone, breaks away from the original.
