Prince’s Estate Announces Release of New Album on His 60th Birthday

Published

Prince's album
This is one special gift to Prince‘s fans.

In honor of what would have been the late icon’s 60th birthday, 7 June 1958, the Prince Estate, in partnership with Warner Bros. Records, has announced the release of Piano & A Microphone 1983, which is also a nod to his final concert tour in 2016.

Consisting of nine tracks, the album features a previously unreleased rehearsal cassette recorded in Prince’s Kiowa Trail home studio in Minnesota at his piano in 1983, a year before he released his six-time platinum album, Purple Rain.

“This raw, intimate recording, which took place at the start of Prince’s career right before he achieved international stardom, is similar in format to the Piano & A Microphone Tour that he ended his career with in 2016,” Prince Estate entertainment adviser Troy Carter said in a statement. “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.”

The nine tracks include private rehearsal of songs including “Purple Rain,” a cover of Joni Mitchell‘s “A Case Of You” and a rare recording of “Mary Don’t You Weep,” which will also be featured in the end credits for Spike Lee‘s BlacKkKlansman.

Seven of the nine track on the album will be presented in the same spontaneous live format as they were originally recorded.

The eight-time Grammy winner was tragically found dead at his Paisley Park estate in April 2016. It was later determined he died of an accidental overdose of fentanyl.

The album is available now to pre-order. For a preview of the album, check out the sample of “Mary Don’t You Weep” above.

Kanye West presents  a pair of white sneakers to Uganda’s  74-year-old leader, president Yoweri Museveni during a visit to the East African nation.



President Yoweri Museveni says he and the American rapper held “fruitful discussions” about promoting tourism and arts.

West and his wife, reality TV star Kim Kardashian West, have been vacationing in a national park in Uganda. He is said to be recording music in a tent.

Uganda’s presidency released photos of a hoodie-wearing West meeting Museveni at the State House on Monday and exchanging gifts.

Excited tourism officials see the visit as an endorsement of the country’s tourism potential.

Uganda’s government has been criticized over its treatment of a local pop star-turned-opposition lawmaker, Bobi Wine, who alleges torture by security forces. The government denies it.

Basically, Venom is a box-office juggernaut every bit as intimidating as its title character.

Although Venom earned relatively poor reviews, it still stayed ahead of critically praised musical drama A Star is Born for the second week in a row. The latter film found itself in second place among the weekend’s top ten movies again, but word-of-mouth buzz suggests that — like Venom — it isn’t slowing down any time soon, either.

# Title  Weekend    U.S. Total 
1. Venom $35.7M $142.8M
2. A Star is Born $28M $94.1M
3. First Man $16.5M $16.5M
4. Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween  $16.2M $16.2M
5. Smallfoot $9.3M $57.6M
6. Night School $8M $59.8M
7. Bad Times at the El Royale  $7.2M $7.2M
8. The House With a Clock in its Walls  $3.9M $62.2M
9. The Hate U Give $1.7M $2.4M
10. A Simple Favor $1.3M $52M

Three new releases finished in the weekend’s top ten movies, with Damien Chazelle’s biopic of Neil Armstrong, First Man, sliding into third place with a $16.5 million premiere. The film earned good (but not great) reviews from critics, and got a warm (but not too warm) reception from general audiences, so it will be interesting to see how it performs when compared to his two previous, Oscar-nominated films: La La Land and Whiplash.

In fourth place at the weekend box office was family-friendly horror sequel Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, which was panned by professional critics and did just okay with audiences (to the tune of 41-percent positive reviews and a “B” grade, respectively). The first Goosebumps movie had a $23.6 million opening weekend, so the second installment appears to be experiencing some growing pains — but with Halloween approaching, it might get a late holiday bump.

Finally, ensemble film Bad Times at the El Royale debuted in seventh place with $7.2 million in US theaters.

Unfortunately, the opening weekend news wasn’t all that positive for Bad Times, which stars Dakota Johnson, Chris Hemsworth, Jon Hamm, Jeff Bridges, and Nick Offerman, and is the second feature from The Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard. Despite decent, 70-percent positive reviews, the film earned a problematic “B-” grade from audiences, which suggests that the people buying tickets for the film didn’t exactly love it.

Coming up this week is the holiday-themed Halloween, which serves as both a sequel to John Carpenter’s 1978 film of the same name, and a reboot of the long-running franchise. Also premiering this week is the directorial debut of Jonah Hill, whose coming-of-age drama Mid90s is earning significant praise already. Quirky ensemble comedy An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn also arrives in theaters.
