Prince Releasing ‘The Hit & Run Album’ This Year

You ready for Prince‘s 38th studio album? Because it appears as if it is dropping this year. His group 3rd Eye Girl, who he released an album with last year, revealed on BBC that they have a new album ready with Prince that is set to drop “soon”, which should mean later this year. The album is set to feature a new version of ‘This Could Be Us’, off Prince‘s last album Art Official Age, and a version of an unreleased song ‘1,000 Hugs & Kisses’ that was recorded during his Diamonds & Pearls era.

“It’s phenomenal, there are so many hits on this album. It’s super experimental. Super hardcore Prince fans that know every song he’s ever recorded – we refer to them as ‘The Purple Collective’ or ‘The Purple Army’ – this album is absolutely for them, because it’s super funky. It’s weird, there’s a lot of experimental sound. It’s just hit after hit and definitely caters to those fans who just love to hear what Prince has to say, rather than wanting to always hear that classic Purple Rain Prince sound.”
