Prince Reportedly Has 2 New Albums Coming Soon

For a while now, Prince has been teasing the release of a new album with his band 3rdEyeGirl, dubbed Plectrum Electrum. Turns out, however, that he has a second project in the works, described by the Minneapolis Star Tribune as a “Prince album.” Over the weekend, Prince previewed this as-yet-untitled effort for the Tribune and other associates during a late-night session at his Paisley Park estate.

According to the Tribune, songs include The Gold Standard, a “percolating electro-funk update of classic Prince;” a remix of Funk ‘n’ Roll, a song he originally premiered with 3rdEyeGirl last year; and an untitled collaboration with Rita Ora that features rapping. Another track, This Could Be Us, was inspired by a meme of him riding on a motorcycle, taken from his film Purple Rain.

In between songs, Prince discussed the difficulties of getting in touch with executives at Warner Music Group, even though he just signed a record contract with them in the spring. He also expressed frustration with the industry as a whole and, in particular, the slow process of a record release “Every No. 1 song, every Top 10 song, every song in the Top 40 is at least 6 months old,” he said. “We should be able to make music and put it out now.”

Prince did not disclose a release date for either of his new albums. He also has announced a 30th anniversary reissue of Purple Rain.
