If the previewed tracks of easy listening rock, Forever's Miley Cyrus level lyrics/production and the Lite FM sounds of the protege' track are any indication, I wouldn't hold your breath. I wonder what the album closing religious babble rave ups will sound like. Maybe he'll denounce Evolution and gravity in one funky go. Science no longer exists because Prince says it doesn't.

I love how he pulls the "some of my best friends" line. And the fact he lives in the United States and has to settle for all their laws and taxes but thinks it's prudent not to vote. What a brainwashed moron.

I also love how he has to defend his 'new Sade' album from any religous elders with some apologetic about 'it could be she's singing to her husband.' As if this woman has the same voice, style or understanding as Sade. I'm far from the biggest Sade fan but just because Prince found a smooth groove plug-in for Pro Tools it doesn't mean he's got the next Sade. Give me a break.

Finally a decent article with actual news about music...that's a good thing, although I doubt I'd have shown up at his place driving a dirty car, lol

After enduring many sporadic and silly, cryptic blurbs on gossip blogs about exclusive parties and "man about town" sightings I'm glad we're getting back to basics. Hopefully there will be news forthcoming about concert dates rather than lawsuits and love interests...we shall see. He's right about the fact that those Tamar shows were outstanding showcases for him to work his mojo.

Lotus flower sounds very interesting, (love the Dick Gregory reference). If I can judge by what I've heard so far I look forward to hearing it. Not sure about MPLSsound so I'll reserve judgement.

As a huge Sade fan I'll admit I'm biased, but to mention her name in the same breath as Bria is nothing short of complete and utter blasphemy IMO. disbelief

Given that he doesn't vote I don't attach much significance to his comments on specific candidates or ballot initiatives. I still find his general thoughts on various weighty matters to be noteworthy, i.e., "two sides fighting only benefit the third person who instigated the fight."

That said, I wish Prince and his associates success going forward and for us supporters it will be nice to have more of what causes us to gather here in the first place...love of Prince's music.
Prince, in you I found a kindred spirit...Rest In Paradise.

The only thing that makes me think this interview is not completely accurate, is the fact that Prince was so eager to defend himslef on the Proposition 8 issue. That doesnt sound like the Prince I know. No offense to homosexuals(i have gay friends as well) but when the news hit the net that Prince was against it, it made me think..FINALLY, Prince is stirring up some MAJOR controversy again! Yea a few gays said theyd never buy his albums again, but does the Prince we know care? NO.. Hes broken all the rules and has never cared what anyone thought about his beliefs or music. Prince has rarely(if ever) defended himself on controversal issues. Now, secondly, if hes such a devout Jehovas Witness like he claims, then he WOULD be against Proposition 8. So keeping these 2 things in mind, makes me doubt the credibility of this interview. And please..refrain from the angry comments. Im not gay bashing. Im making points about Prince.

Yeah, really out of the blue, Mike. Let's see: pre-album hype by "leaking" tracks to radio, summoning reporters for "exclusive" interviews,... This is STANDARD RECORD COMPANY PR.

Wanna see actual out of the blue? Trent Reznor who posts the word "soon" on his site and then drops a new album unannounced two weeks later, for immediate consumption. He did this TWICE last year. Completely disregarded regular channels, simply put it out. No sucking up to reporters, no hype, just the actual music. THAT is out of the blue. Prince is still doing the same thing he's done always. Go back 10 years and it was EXACTLY the same for Rave.

My good buddy Bart.....

Cool. He's plans on releasing 3 albums. Could I get some clarification though on the Bria album? So is one of these three albums supposed to be her own album or is she just doing vocals on a couple of songs on one of the three Prince albums? If it's the former I'll probably pass because I don't really like her voice. But if she's just on a couple of songs on a Prince album ... I guess I could just skip the Bria songs. lol

Regarding the Sade comment. I got what he meant even though some are annoyed. The point is that Sade hasn't released a new album since 2000, when Lovers Rock came out. On that he's right. I don't count the 2002 live album because while it may have had a new tune or two on it, it wasn't an album with all new material.

As for the voting. Who cares. He didn't commit a crime by not voting. It's a personal choice. He has a right to vote or not to vote. Period.

After re-reading it, he IS releasing two albums, as the 3rd is Bria's.

Nice. I hear that... Now I just hope he'll release vinyl versions of these.

I think the 'MPLSOUND' will be FAR better than the song we heard ("Never B Another Like Me"), although that tune would jam with some simple changes... change the lead vocal, drop that synth melody line, add some funky guitar and bass...

All i can say is wow!. What a way 2 bring in the new year.....And Prince saying nasty & EXPLICIT IN AN INTERVIEW. I guess he going 2 let Bria sing what he is thinking.. Wise choice.


Can't wait 2 c what the new website looks like. Prince is very creative. i have waited a long time 4 this. I knew he had something big cooking. With a somewhat quiet 2008 minis the 21 night book 2 tie us over... The article is great 2


I also think the major retailer is Target my fav store
eye will ALWAYS think of prince like a "ACT OF GOD"! N another realm. eye mean of all people who might of been aliens or angels.if found out that prince wasn't of this earth, eye would not have been that surprised. R.I.P. prince

Hmmm, I'm thinking WalMart but I would prefer BestBuy...I live in that place. biggrin

Interesting to note that he has a new webmaster as well. I'm hoping for a site that's heavy on music and music related content. Lose the fluff.

My predictions for these 3 new albums.

Bria Valentes album: probably smooth-soul aking to Sade's sound, but what i heard from Bria so far, its safe so say she is NO Sade on a vocal level.. lol

Lotus Flower: a continuation on the sound of Planet Earth, but probably with a more band-like sound, and hopefully without misplaced contemporary R&B songs that cut the flow.

MPLSOUND: the most mysterious 'one'. It could be the return of the Controversy-sound (as John Blackwell did say), but it could also turn into plastic electronic funk on auto-pilot as we heard on The Chocolate Invasion and The Slaughterhouse albums.

Exciting news, nonetheless biggrin

I hope it's Best Buy. Target doesn't do a good job promoting the people who do deals with them. Who knows much about Christna Aguliara's new CD? The only way I know anything about it is because of subway ads I see when I'm on the train. He needs to do Best Buy pray

I hope when he is talking about 'retailers' he is also thinking about his fans outside of the USA.

I mean, i think he will probably offer these new albums to download on the internet too (on his own new site?), but i am one of those 'conservatives' that still like to buy the 'physical thing', complete with booklet, lyricsheet, liner-notes etc. biggrin

So glad someone is finally releasing a Pro Tools album. There haven't been nearly enough of those lately. Real music by real musicians.
