Prince : NEW ALBUM: The Hit & Run

Josh is involved again, so I kind of think this is a good thing.


I wonder when it will officially be released. I mean, we're well into summer now, and about to start the dog days of summer.

Positive signs:

* Josh is co-producing

* The album is completed and was already played publically

* Looks like Prince is back to frequent releases

Worries:

* it's going to suck

* Prince is going appear in public with another 18 year old girl whose career will be affected negatively

* Larry Graham might publically surface again with his big ass moustache



Your thoughts?

From the housequake FB page: NEW ALBUM! 'The Hit & Run' coming 'soon'...

BBC 6music radio had an exclusive interview with 3rdEyeGirl this morning (or seemingly just Hannah) in which they revealed a new album has been completed by Prince & Josh entitled 'The Hit & Run'. Hardrocklover is from that album and the album was played in full at the recent Obama event apparently. More details to follow. Check out the BBC iPlayer (if UK resident) to hear the interview.

BBC6 announced it. Anymore details known.

Hit n Run makes me think of a live album.

Hopefully it's out soon, before the end of August.

Just somewhere in the middle,
Not too good and not too bad.

That new version of This Could B Us is really cool, great guitar and bass towards the end, plus funky guitar to finish the song.

Maybe im confused but the same link that newpowersoul posted, i just got off of Facebook. It was playing some instrumental jam. Like i said though, im probably confused about what's playing. It is almost 3AM lol.

Nevermind, im most definitely confused. Good night (morning) y'all.

There is no links to the new songs, the above posters got ahead of themselves, just an announcement

Interestingly for me, they have announced it on BBC, does that mean he's going to do some stuff in the UK to promote it?

I'm not entirely sure how Josh producing is a positive sign, but I look forward to the new album none the less - especially if HARDROCKLOVER is anything to go by.

When I seen the title I thought it would be a live album. You could be right - it maybe the title track of the album. I like Hardrocklover so looking forward to this. Lets see when/if it actually happens tho....

When I saw the title I right away thought of Prince's lovelife, so maybe the album will be autobiographical and answers some of the pressing that have been asked on the board lately.

I won't believe in or anticipate anything until a preorder page is up.

Soon in P world = Soon in NIN world these days.. or always has been.

More album info from DrFunkenberry.com

"Super hardcore Prince fans that know every song he's ever recorded - we refer to them as 'The Purple Collective' or 'The Purple Army' - this album is absolutely for them, because it's super funky.

.

"It's weird, there's a lot of experimental sound. It's just hit after hit and definitely caters to those fans who just love to hear what Prince has to say, rather than wanting to always hear that classic Purple Rain Prince sound."

.


"Everything happens really fast here," the band said. "When an idea comes... it's translated to the musicians or whoever's working on it and then recorded and laid down relatively quick and then it's put out.

.

"It's definitely something we're thinking is going to be released right away, it's just not been nailed down yet.

.
"I can't wait for everybody to get this album, it's going to be amazing.

.
"It's definitely in discussion, so as soon as we get those details I'm sure we'll announce it and get it out to everybody immediately."

I don't need a Prince live album.. they usually sucks (like the one from London in 2007 - with the book - and the One Nite Alone boxset, both yuck)..

Therefor: let's hope for some good studio music instead,

just imho.... wink

I also like the original outtake but prepare yourself. Of course it's going to be a newly recorded version, and I would take a sensible guess that it's Hannah on vocals.

I liked the songs on AOA with Andy Allo and she'd be good on this but she's out the picture so most likely be one of: Hannah, Judith Hill, Marrisa Jack or Danielle Curiel who tweeted about being on a remix recently

Great news to wake up to this morning!

The title is kinda lame but HRL is not!!! So let's hope he delivers the goods.

The only thing to worry about is the girls saying hit after hit...I somehow doubt it

Excited to hear the revamped version of TCBU and to finally get 1000 hugs included!!

Bring on the funk P!
The greatest live performer of our times was is and always will be Prince.

Remember there is only one destination and that place is U
All of it. Everything. Is U.
