4 years pass...

Yo, while me and Q-Tip were performing 'Vivrant Thing' in Vegas last night...this n-a Prince walked out on the stage, took the guitar from our guitar player and just started rocking! None of us knew he was there until he popped up on the stage...then the n-a vanished like Batman, LOL!

The sound crew said Prince was in the balcony watching the show from the very beginning (The balcony was closed off). Then when 'Vivrant Thing' came out, he just came backstage and walked out on stage.

None of us knew what was happening, then when we finished the show he was gone LOL!

With the amount of stuff going on in the background it sounds like he recorded over the top of something. In case anyone is wondering what the reverse bit at ~3:30 is, it's Prince saying "contracts just make you smaller".

might seem normal but is actually (snoball), Friday, 26 February 2010 17:41 (4 years ago) Permalink

the problem with all of prince's stuff from the 90s on is that i think he fundamentally misunderstands what made him great at one time.

he's a great minimalist that thinks he's a maximalist.

Yeah, that's definitely "Irresistible Bitch" on the mix. I think you thought it was called "Letra de Irresistible Bitch" because you found the lyrics on some Spanish lyrics site? "Letra de" translates to "lyrics of"... :)

I'm more interested in it being his first Warners album since 1995 than anything else. Hoping they might make him step up his quality control (though I'm not that optimistic, he might have negotiated it so they have no input).

Not expecting much. Even "instant grat" tracks (see below) won't get many to order early, I don't think

Music icon PRINCE today announces not one, but two, brand new studio albums to be released globally via Warner Bros. Records. The much-anticipated albums are 'ART OFFICIAL AGE' and 'PLECTRUMELECTRUM', set to release on September 30th 2014 in the US. 'ART OFFICIAL AGE' is a solo album and 'PLECTRUMELECTRUM' is by Prince's new band 3RDEYEGIRL.

Both albums, which are sold separately, are now available for pre-order via digital retailers and from http://www.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, to be confirmed shortly.

2014 has been one of the most exciting years yet for the prodigious musical talent. Together with 3RDEYEGIRL, he rocked UK and European audiences into a frenzy with his sell-out 'Hit & Run' tours, generating some of the most significant critical acclaim of his career so far. In April, NPG Music Publishing was launched, marking the first time Prince's vast publishing catalog has been independently controlled and administered in over twenty years. All of this in addition to headlining and curating the Essence Festival on July 4th in New Orleans and a much talked about appearance on hit TV show 'New Girl'. 2014 has underlined that Prince continues to innovate and surprise, thrilling his fans and welcoming a whole new audience in the process.

The brand new studio albums mark a historic return to Warner Bros. Records, Prince's original label home. The renewed partnership came after the announcement that Warner Bros. Records returned to Prince the master recordings of his pioneering '80s albums, including Dirty Mind, 1999, Purple Rain and Sign 'O' the Times.

Three Word Username, Monday, 25 August 2014 15:26 (1 month ago) Permalink

for some reason i didnt think WB would release both of his new albums. i guess that was his bargaining chip: 'you have to release two NEW albums of mine which you never wanted to in the 80s/90s otherwise you dont get to re-release purple rain! ha!'. not looking forward to either of them really - most of his recent material has been pretty crappy. his album covers have been generally awful since he left WB, though the rainbow children wasnt bad.

there is not even a tiny molecule of a chance that the record company will have any creative input in these. i also doubt they had even a tiny molecule of creative input in sign o' the times, so i'm ok with that.

Well obviously they got him to trim down what became SOTT.

Obviously Prince doesnt really get that after a big album, a film, another album, another film and soundtrack, why they would be anxious over a 3 album set, all in the space of three years

For someone who purportedly doesn't like the internet, Prince has done a really through job of invading just about every banner ad I've seen today.

saw ads for this on the london underground yesterday. cant remember the last time prince had ads on the tube.

im interested in this supposedly being an all analogue album. i know prince has become more old-school-leaning in the last 10 years but for some reason, i cant imagine him recording to tape.

StillAdvance, Wednesday, 27 August 2014 10:01 (1 month ago) Permalink

Just checking but yeah wasn't Sign O' The Times meant to include The Black Album and be a triple bt WB said no?

sonic thedgehod (albvivertine), Wednesday, 27 August 2014 10:02 (1 month ago) Permalink

prince pulled the black album himself IIRC as he had a change of heart (or took some E, depending on who tells the story)

SOTT was originally a double, then a triple, and then an alias album under his camille name, and then warners protested, and it became a bit of all of them and was made to fit 2 discs (i reckon dream factory would have been a great double, crystal ball as a triple, slightly less so, but warners objecting is why he made emancipation soon as he left them)

StillAdvance, Wednesday, 27 August 2014 10:24 (1 month ago) Permalink

Yeah, the official explanation is that Prince had an epiphany (while on E, according to the rumours) that the Black Album was too dark or something, so he pulled it off and replaced it with Lovesexy. (This was done so late in the process that tons of Black Albums had already been printed, hence it wasn't difficult to find a pirate copy afterwards, even though it never officially made the stores.) Though I've always kinda suspected the real reason for deleting the album was that he realized it would probably flop, since it doesn't have any catchy pop tunes, besides "When 2 R in Love" (which is hardly his poppiest ballad either).

Tuomas, Wednesday, 27 August 2014 12:29 (1 month ago) Permalink

Thanks, just looked into the whole thing a bit and v interesting/way more convoluted than I'd thought. Like the E theory.

emo canon in twee major (BradNelson), Monday, 1 September 2014 18:39 (1 month ago) Permalink

Given that there is nothing even minimally wrong with "SOTT," and that the reconstructed versions of "Crystal Ball" and "Dream Factory," as Prince or Camille or whatever, aren't nearly as solid as "SOTT," I think WB made the right decision there. "Black Album" merit is more debatable, but I've never listened to it as A-list Prince.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 1 September 2014 21:04 (1 month ago) Permalink

Owning a bootleg copy of The Dream Factory myself, I think enough of it is strange and powerful enough to have worked if WB had a promotions department working for one client only.
