Prince Confirms New Album Plans, Announces ‘Purple Rain’ 30th Anniversary Reissue

f99a72685717c3e388661d44a1667eac Prince Confirms New Album Plans, Announces ‘Purple Rain’ 30th Anniversary Reissue

Prince has been playing gigs with new material and releasing a steady trickle of new songs over the past year — including a duet with Zooey Deschanel stemming from his cameo on New Girl — but he’d been dodgy about what exactly he and his band, 3rdEyeGirl, are up to. But the mystery is over, as Prince today (April 18) confirmed he has a new album in the works.

The news came in a press release announcing the Purple One’s new deal with Warner Bros. Records that will “see the release of long-awaited, previously unheard music” and give him ownership of all his master recordings. “A brand-new studio album is on the way,” he said in a statement. “Both Warner Bros. Records and Eye are quite pleased with the results of the negotiations and look forward to a fruitful working relationship.”

This all comes ahead of this summer’s 30th anniversary of Prince’s seminal album Purple Rain and its accompanying film. That landmark will get its own showcase, via a digitally re-mastered deluxe reissue of the LP which will include previously unheard material.
