Hold the phone!! Icon to the icons PRINCE has today announced not one, but two, brand new studio album releases. The hugely-anticipated albums are set to be named ‘ART OFFICIAL AGE’ and ‘PLECTRUMELECTRUM’ respectively and are set for release at the very same time on September 29 in the UK. 
 
Prince announces double album release - details
To make things ever so slightly clearer, ‘ART OFFICIAL AGE’ is set to be a solo album from Prince alone, whereas, ‘PLECTRUMELECTRUM’ involves both Prince and his new band 3RDEYEGIRL.
 
2014 has been one of the most exciting years yet for glam rocks most prodigious musical talent. After years of relative peace and quiet, together with 3RDEYEGIRL, Prince rocked UK and European audiences into a frenzy with his sell-out ‘Hit & Run’ tours throughout 2014, generating some of the most significant critical acclaim of his career so far.  In April, NPG Music Publishing was launched, marking the first time Prince’s vast publishing catalog has been independently controlled and administered in over twenty years.
 
The brand new studio albums mark a historic return to Warner Bros. Records, Prince’s original label home.  The renewed partnership came after the announcement that Warner Bros. Records returned to Prince the master recordings of his pioneering ’80s albums, including Dirty Mind, 1999, Purple Rain and Sign ‘O’ the Times. Just check out what the label had to say about the two new album releases...
 
Prince announces double album release - details
"In releasing two albums on the same day fans get the chance to savor the many different aspects of Prince’s musical talents with ‘ART OFFICIAL AGE’ and ‘PLECTRUMELECTRUM’ offering two very distinct listening experiences. ‘ART OFFICIAL AGE’ is a classic Prince album, produced, arranged, composed and performed by Prince and Joshua Welton. Sonically the record is a contemporary concoction of soul, R&B and funk. The melodies are immediate and prominent as ever and Prince’s vocals are rich and solid, taking full advantage of his vocal range with decidedly, seductive lyrics. ‘PLECTRUMELECTRUM’ is a classic band record, with 3RDEYEGIRL which include Prince, Donna Grantis (guitar), Hannah Ford Welton (drums) and Ida Nielsen (bass).  Recorded live and in analog the album is an electrifying funk-rock statement..."
 
We are also extremely excited to have the official track-listings for both records. Today sure is a good day...
