Have you even bothered to click the link and read the article?



No, I was hoping some arsehole would explain it to me. Well? What are you waiting for? biggrin

No Emma, unfortunately Bart is 100% right on this.
A lot of people just comment without just reading the article.

Based on the earlier article I think it is a studio album. He mentioned mixing it... meaning what? That they have the original multi-track masters... He also said getting parts together.

If we consider "Nothing Compares 2 U" which seems to be the same mix as the leaked version. NC2U was leaked before the tapes were taken to Iron Mountain so it seems it was 2 separate sources. So they do not seem to have been working with the multi-track and the slight differences could be a matter of EQ as opposed to mixing. (and I say this not having any real idea how it works but that seems to be the most reasonable explanation)

On the other hand, he says "one of the pieces" and that it was "more time specific" so could be something Live? But I am thinking it is something he had put together as a studio album.

Anyone for banning the AR15 must be on the side of the criminal as once banned only criminals will have them.

The article says that the album is "time specific" but doesn't state which time. Admittedly, I only glanced over it because the questions regarding the website is of no interest to me. I'm only interested in the new album. But aside from the "time specific" part, they don't give much away about it. Not even which time they are specifically talking about. My post was about me hoping it is unreleased material from more recent times because I already have a lot of the 80s stuff in good quality so if this new album is primarily 80s stuff I already have, then I'm not interested in it. However, if it's something like Black is the New Black or Hit'n'run Phase 3, then I can get excited by it.

I'm sure when I read that article earlier that it mentioned the 80's as the time period for the album. Now it doesn't seem to mention that and like you say just that it's, "time specific".

Can anyone else confirm, or have I finally cracked and am going mental?

I wish they could put the 5 unreleased tracks from the Purple Rain era that he played for Morris Hayes on the album, that would be exciting smile

It is not going to be anything from the last 20 years. I doubt it is from the last 30...

Excellent.

I personally hope for the Roadhouse Garden, integrally how P saw it back than. No added stuff, unless on a bonus cd.

About time. I hope its the Black Is The New Black album. As far as I know, that's probably one of the last projects he worked on so it's as close as we'll ever get to a "new" Prince album. The vault stuff from the 80s can come at a later date. I more than likely have most of that already anyway. The priority should be putting music out that's never leaked before.


I had read there was a deal in place with Blue Note to release this.

Is this recently or before April 2016?

I didn't read the entire article at first but I don't remember it stating that it was 80s stuff. I think the wording of it hints at it being 80s stuff because Nothing Compares 2 U is mentioned in the same sentence so people might assume that the song is part of it. But all that's said is something like "after the excitement around Nothing Compares 2 U, we decided to give the fans something else this year". Some may take that "something else" to be songs from the same time period. But it seems more open to me. "Something else" could imply anything. From any time period. Which is why I said I'm hoping for something more recent.

I do not think that ever got that far into production. And we have at least 2 songs off of it... so it is doubtful that would be vaulted (HAHA) as an album of unreleased songs.


Actually, he did not say it was unreleased just that it was "a full-length album." And even the title says "Material", not Songs... so it could be live... Dang it he really was careful as to what he said!

Doubt it's going to be Roadhouse Garden since they just did a release with Our Destiny/Roadhouse Garden and Wonderful Ass.

Alot of people are focusing on the 84 mention in the article but I'm really hoping this collection has 85-86 rarities. Alot of good songs and potential surprises are available from that era.

As far as I remember there is a note he wrote where IIRC he mentions Blue Note and 3 albums released in a very short time, it's one of the photos from the investigation at Paisley Park...

That's surprising given statements by some of the band members, who seem to think it was a wrap. I wonder how close to completion it was in Prince's mind?

Yes this is where I saw it. Maybe in your original post you had said there was a deal in place to release it, and I took it as current info since your tour was recent. Though if the guide said Prince had the deal in place while he was alive, it would likely mean there’s no more deal now that he’s gone.

I would like to see the release of it, HNR3, and the P & M Live album, as he (or a former band member, in the case of BITNB) mentioned working on them specifically.

that's what i understood her to mean, the ins and outs of whether or not it will be honored posthumously is probably something for the estate/attorneys to figure out. i seem to recall her saying something about there being a jazz album (possibly NPGQ?) as part of the deal, too...maybe i should've paid a little closer attention, but i was a little overwhelmed, standing in the middle of studio A...

While this is exciting, I can't help thinking that this is all very convenient to WB. Their difficult star dead, the tapes and recordings swiftly moved away from Paisley Park to a 'secure' place while the family were too busy squabbling. It means they can now access them at will without family interference and bingo, with no will, they can capitalise on the vault for as long as they want and can release whatever they choose.

Remember when Prince was frustrating the release of PR Deluxe by not allowing vault material on it, boom a few years later he's gone and songs that he would never release now due to their graphic content are suddenly out there.....

Good news. I think this could be Prince's version of The Family album. There is no reason why this shouldn't be as commercially appealing as an album of other unheard tracks.

Note how the armchair criminologist's are more interested in blame than they are in the news of new music.

I agree with your points but the Family are idiots. I wonder what project they just recently cancelled?
