Prince just released a new song and announced a new album. Yes, THAT Prince.
Were he still alive, Prince would have turned 60 today. To mark the occasion, The Purple One’s estate has announced the released of a new album entitled Piano & a Microphone 1983, a collection of solo material Prince recorded at home. Release is scheduled for September 21.
The first song (single?) from the album is “Mary Don’t You Weep,” a cover of a traditional spiritual that will also play over the closing credits of Spike Lee’s new film, BlacKkKlansman.
When I looked for it on YouTube, I found the song–and then it immediately disappeared. But I did find this chip.
Here’s the full track listing of the album:
- 17 Days
- Purple Rain
- A Case Of You
- Mary Don’t You Weep
- Strange Relationship
- International Lover
- Cold Coffee & Cocaine
- Why The Butterflies
