Prince to release three albums via retailer and onlineJanuary 2nd, 2009 - 5:12 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, Jan 02 (ANI): Prince is planning to release three albums in 2009 through an exclusive deal with a major retailer.
The 80s pop sensation also promised a highly interactive website will also provide an opportunity to buy his new recordings.
The Purple One’’s not working with a record label.
“The gatekeepers have to change,” The Daily Telegraph quoted Prince, as telling L.A. Times.
One of Princes albums is an electro-pop sound, tentatively titled MPLSOUND.
He has experimented with Pro Tools and “new ways of recording”, experimental pop songs, which remind of the sound of 1984 hit When Droves Cry.
One of the album features a Q-Tip rap; another calls a “Funky Congregation” to worship and may become a live set piece. Prince also talked up new tunes by his protege, Bria Valente.
“We got sick of waiting for Sade to make a new album,” he said, introducing Valente’’s new album, Elixir.
This music is nasty, but it’’s not dirty,” Prince said, explaining how sensual music fits in with his much-discussed faith - he’’s a Jehovah’’s Witness.
There’’s no profanity. It isn”t promoting promiscuity. She’’s singing about her lover, who could be her partner for life, Prince said. (ANI)
