Wake me when I can actually get a despatched notification from Amazon, then I'll be interested. Until then it's all hot air.

just cause those will be digitla releases DOESNT mean there also wont be CDs

There won't be CD's...They won't print 10 or 15 re-release without any bonus content, nobody would buy it. AOA and PLEC were flops.If even Prince's fan doesn't buy his new releases, why would they bother to buy an album they already have ?

Releasing it digitally is the best option financially. Unless, of course, Prince is involved in the promotion, but we all know it's highly unlikely.

You don't release an album without the artist making promotion, unless you're dead, which is in itself a huge promotion.

WARNER has clearly hard time to justify the new re-release. I suspect that the non-release of PURPLE RAIN in 2014 was not only a marketing mistake, but because they hadn't any bonus material, and they hoped to find an arrangement with Prince.

AOA remained in the top 10 pop album charts for 5 weeks. I wished my album would fail that bad. With little to none radio play.

99.9% of everything I say is strictly for my own entertainment

I'll pick my side: I say (if there are remasters) there will be CDs. I only say this because every week I see remasters, special editions etc of all kinds of albums that don't get any real promo' and/or are by artists that don't release or tour anymore.

But these artists are DEAD, like I said, or they add BONUS CONTENT.

In what world are you living ?

AOA spent ONE week in the top 10, and 7 week in the top 200. AOA was not even on the 300 best selling album in the USA for the year 2014 (!).

Welcome to reality.

It's bad, really bad, even without promotion. His fan doesn't support him anymore. Hell, even here some people didn't bother to buy it.

Now, he has no other option than to release his albums only digitally because nobody wants to sign him anymore. I predicted all that things, and many more. His carreer on the Billboard 200 is over, like I said last year.

110.000 in he USA would be an honest estimation and another little 100.000 outside the USA.
