New Prince album, Piano & A Microphone 1983, coming this fall

You can pre-order the album now in all the usual formats, including a deluxe CD/vinyl combo that includes a booklet featuring liner notes written by Prince's engineer at the time the album was recorded, as well as candid photos and some never-before-seen images. When Prince passed away back in April, 2016, there were rumors that he still had plenty of music remaining in the vault, and it was likely that we'd be hearing some of it.

The Prince estate and Warner Bros. announced on Thursday that a new album of the artist's material, Piano & A Microphone 1983, will be released on September 21. Records announced the release of previously unreleased recordings.

According to The Boombox, the new album will consist of recordings taken from the very beginning of Prince's career. The "private rehearsal" took place just before he'd broken through to worldwide stardom and ultimately mirrors his final "Piano & A Microphone Tour" from 2016.

"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".

Meanwhile, Rolling Stone reports a group of Prince fans are getting together for a three-day celebration taking place in Henderson, Minnesota, near where scenes from "Purple Rain" were filmed.

Curiously, the collection also includes a performance of "Mary Don't You Weep", a 19th century spiritual song that has been plucked from the album to run over the closing credits of Spike Lee's new movie, "BlacKkKlansman", due out in August.
