Music legend, hip hop influence, pancake master, guitar god and landlord’s nightmare Prince Rogers Nelson put out a pair of new albums today. The rock and roll hall of fame inductee is set to release a pair of new albums on September 30.
The new music is said to be full of funk and soul sounds, somewhat similar to his earliest works. The albums will be called Plectrumelectrum, which has been discussed for years and will feature the group 3rdEyeGirl. The other is his recently announced solo LP, Art Official Age.
Art Official Age has the most funky sounds, and is supposed to be the most similar to Prince’s earliest work. According to reports, the album contains a mix of soul, R&B and funk. The pre-order includes the songs “Breakdown” and “Clouds,” as well as three digital singles.
To get a glimpse into the new/old sound, listen to “Clouds” at Complex.
