New Full-Length Prince Album to Release in September
It's been two years since Prince died at the age of 57, and yet his legacy continues to live on with new, previously unreleased music.
Just last week -- two days before the two-year anniversary of Prince's passing -- his estate released an original 1984 studio recording of Nothing Compares 2 U as well as never-before-seen video footage.
Troy Carter, who manages Prince's estate, told Variety, "the release of ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ was the first piece of music to come from our collaboration with the estate, and now we’re working on...a full-length album.” That album is purportedly set for release in September 2018. Little more is known except that it will be more time-specific, rather than spanning Prince's career. Said Carter, "Michael Howe, who’s been working with us on the archive, has done a tremendous job of finding some special pieces of work, and one of the pieces that he found, all of us fell in love with it and decided this was special enough for fans to hear."
