First Prince Album in Four Years Coming in September

Sheila Prince Cat
Prince — yes that Prince — announced Monday that he will be releasing his first solo album in four years, called Artificial Age, on September 30th.

The news was delivered on ABC‘s Good Morning America by all-female funk ‘n’ roll band, 3rd Eye Girl (with whom his Royal Badness works closely). 3rd Eye Girl will release a full-length album, called Plectrum Electrum, the same day. Both albums are currently available for presale online.

In addition to the announcement, Prince’s new song “Clouds” was previewed.

Back in April, Prince made headlines for making nice with his old record label, Warner Bros. Records, with whom he’d been entangled in legal battles for years and years. These releases would be the first to come out through his post-reconciliation Warners deal.
