Prince Estate to Release ‘Originals’ Album: His Versions of Songs He Gave to Other Artists (EXCLUSIVE)

Post on Part 2 Discussion Sticky: https://prince.org/msg/7/459740



"Originals" #PRINCE set to be released via @wbr & @tidal on June 7th exclusive to Tidal then a physical cd release June 21st with vinyl a month later.

APRIL 24, 2019 6:42PM PT

It’s a rare singer-songwriter who can just give away undeniable hits like “Nothing Compares 2 U,” “Manic Monday” and “The Glamorous Life” to other artists, but that’s exactly what Prince did throughout his 40-year career.


And on his birthday, June 7, the late artist’s estate, in partnership with Warner Bros. Records and Tidal, will release “Originals,” a 15-track album featuring 14 previously unreleased recordings by Prince of such songs. The tracks were selected collaboratively by Troy Carter, on behalf of The Prince Estate, and Jay-Z. (The full tracklist appears below.)

On June 21, Warner Bros. will release the recordings, sourced directly from Prince’s archive of “Vault” recordings, via all download and streaming partners and physically on CD, while 180 gram 2LP and limited edition Deluxe CD+2LP formats will follow on July 19th. (Pre-order the album here.)

Happy for this news, but not all that excited really.

I do love the artwork !

Great artwork !!!

-

Well let me assemble this tracklist from the (bad quality) ones I have from bootlegs,

so I can already feel what it's going to be like. wink

Maybe I can change my mind.

-

Thing is, there are tons of unknown releases in the vault.

I guess we will never see those before 2030... Hope I'm wrong.

They will always try to make $$ out of stuff most people know.

So am I the only person excited for this? Got shitty versions of most of these, so having great versions is something I'm looking forward to. Not sure I've even heard a version of Manic Monday with Prince on lead or Jungle Love.

Looking forward to this.

RIP sad

This is great - these are mostly killer songs, and I would love to hear Prince's version in a hopefully great sound quality. Crossing fingers they add some nice liner notes too!!!

I have some of these songs on boots, but mostly the sound quality is rather dull - so let's hear them in cristal clear sound biggrin

Well I'll take it. Not really that bothered about hearing sex shooter with his vocals to be honest. And a shame songs like Tear that he did for celine Dion isn't on there, but to have these in hopefully great quality will be nice.

I know it won't be, but if it turns out to be the NPG version with Prince vocals, I'll buy it twice biggrin

As WhisperingDandelions said in the other thread:


Honestly I think I'm most excited for "Make-Up." One of his most intense and dark new wave tracks, borderline goth electro. I predict a dramatic re-assessment from people who normally write off the Vanity 6 project.

'

I'm the most excited and surprised by the inclusion of this song. It's one of the best songs he didn't put his name to, and probably the strangest. Just the other day I was wodnering what it would sound like with Prince's vocals.

Obviously there are some songs I'd have liked to see, (for instance, 777-9311 would be an incredible opener), but this will be an interesting release and I look forward to it. My only complaint, and its an esoteric one which likely only bothers myself, is that it features 'Baby, You're a Trip'. The Prince version is one of my favourite unreleased songs and I've always wished it would be the final song on a thematic 1999-era album (the sort which would feature songs like 'Purple Music', 'Moonbeam Levels', 'Extraloveable') which this release makes even less likely.

Hundalasiliah!

Slightly concerned they might be edited/short versions, as 15 tracks have to fit on 1 CD (70 mins). I would prefer the full length versions ideally and Prince liked to record 10-15 minutes. Not done the math but will we get the full length Glamorous Life or Jungle love? They may use some sort of shorter version for the casual buyer as well. There is mention of a deluxe version to follow?...

WOW- for a double LP I’m thinking we may get some extended/long’ish versions of these songs.

Such an amazing surprise

You sure you want to hear Prince singing "I'm a kept woman"? smile (But of course he might have written a version in the third person.)

.
A ton of other tracks could've been included, they could grow this into a 10CD box easily. But they probably won't.

One of the tracks I'd love to have in pristine quality is 'Open Book'.

Now THIS is more like it. I'm sure there will be flaws (e.g. the artwork) but I fully support this idea.

I've put together the album using the album tracks and extended versions of 'Manic Monday' and 'Holly Rock' and it comes out to be 76 minutes which is roughly the maximum for a CD. Of course these are only the versions released on the Time, Vanity 6, Apollonia 6 etc albums, and in many cases Prince's original multitracks were probably longer and it would be great to hear full versions as they are on tape, but it is what it is...

am I right in thinking that these types of releases are cheaper & easier to release due to copyright issues? For example say the Revolution tracks will have co-write credits etc. Therefore anything that is solo Prince keeps most of the $ within the estate?

It probably means we're still about a decade away from, say, re-releasing the full associated artists with complete Prince demos/guide tracks but i'll take this.

This is something to look forward too. Rereleases are nice, but this is a step in the right direction. Prince vault material.

But they know we have it and we're supposed to be the buyers, it's not about anybody's "fault" here...
