Prince Has Another Album Set To Go

by Roger Wink, VVN Music on July 26, 2015

The members of 3rd Eye Girl (Donna Grantis, Ida Nielsen and Hannah Ford Welton) have told BBC Radio 6 that their boss, Prince, has a brand new album ready to release.

The ‘Hit & Run’ Album would be Prince’s 38th studio set when released, which could be at anytime. The ladies of the band don’t know an exact date but said it would be “soon”.

According to the band, the album is experimental, although there are “so many hits on the album.”

“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.”

So far, no track list has been announced but the band revealed:

Hardrocklover – The first single from the album was released July 1.
This Could Be Us – A reworking of the track from Art Official Age.
1,000 Hugs and Kisses – A song originally from the time of Diamonds and Pearls.

The album was written with Joshua Welton, husband of 3rd Eye Girl Hannah Ford Welton, who also co-produced last year’s Art Official Age.
