Prince’s 60th Birthday Celebrated with Album announcement

Prince’s 60th Birthday Celebrated with Album announcement
To mark the 60th birthday of music legend Prince, his estate have announced a new album… only it’s not exactly new…
 
‘Piano & A Microphone 1983’ was, as you’ve guessed, recorded in 1983 with just the purple one sat at a piano and this special, pre-global stardom recording has the full blessing of the people in charge. No bootlegs here. There’s nine tracks, including an early version of Purple Rain. Most formats will be covered except tape, because fuck tape.
 
Here’s some official blurb: “This raw, intimate recording, which took place at the start of Prince’s career right before he achieved international stardom, is similar in format to the Piano & A Microphone Tour that he ended his career with in 2016,” said Troy Carter, “The Estate is excited to be able to give fans a glimpse of his evolution and show how his career ultimately came full circle with just him and his piano.”
