Prince estate and Warner Bros. announce new Prince album Originals

 

Featuring 14 previously unreleased tracks — original versions of iconic hits!

Prince will forever be remembered as a commanding live performer, chart-topping recording artist, and music business revolutionary. Yet for all the time he spent in the spotlight over his four-decade-long career, Prince also worked tirelessly behind the scenes to nurture talent and pen songs for the rising artists he respected.

In June, The Prince Estate, in partnership with Warner Bros. Records and TIDAL, will release Originals, a 15-track album featuring 14 previously unreleased recordings that illuminate the vital, behind-the-scenes role Prince played in other artists' careers.

Largely comprised of songs from Prince's "Vault" recordings, it spans the period from 1981 and 1991 and includes his original takes on Sheila E.'s "The Glamorous Life" and the Bangles' "Manic Monday."

The tracks were selected collaboratively by influential music manager Troy Carter, on behalf of The Prince Estate, and Jay-Z.

On June 21, 2019 Warner Bros. Records will release this extraordinary body of work, sourced directly from Prince's vast archive of Vault recordings, via all download and streaming partners and physically on CD, while 180-gram 2LPand limited edition Deluxe CD+2LP formats will follow on July 19th.

By the mid-1980s, Prince was dominating the charts even as a writer/producer with songs he'd composed and recorded for others. In addition to releasing nine of his most commercially successful full-length albums, he also wrote and recorded endless reels of material for proteges The Time, Vanity 6, Sheila E., Apollonia 6, Jill Jones, the Family, and Mazarati. Occasionally, Prince's original demo recordings would be used as master takes on their albums, with only minor alterations to the instrumentation and a replacement of the vocal tracks. Other times, artists would rely on his demos to guide them through their own recording process, with Prince's initial take informing their final version of his song. The aggregate effect was a complete saturation and transformation of the pop music landscape, with Prince both leading and subverting mainstream culture.

Several of the iconic songs found on Originals were considerable hits for the artists who recorded them. Sheila E.'s "The Glamorous Life" reached No. 1 on the dance charts in 1984, while the enormous success of "Manic Monday" propelled the single and its accompanying album, The Bangles' Different Light, to the No. 2 spot on the pop charts. The Time's Ice Cream Castle, featuring the Top 20 hit "Jungle Love," spent a whopping 57 weeks on the Billboard200. And in 1991, Martika enjoyed international success with "Love... Thy Will Be Done," a Top 10 hit in France, Australia, the U.K. and the USA.

Originals pulls back the curtain to reveal the origins of these familiar songs, in addition to deeper album cuts such as Vanity 6's "Make-Up," Jill Jones's "Baby, You're a Trip," and Kenny Rogers' "You're My Love." The album also features Prince's majestic original 1984 version of "Nothing Compares 2 U," released in 2018 as a standalone single.
