Prince Performs With Liv Warfield and NPG Horns

That ringing in your ears is a not a medical emergency. The heavens have blessed us with a miracle, and the angels are singing in celebration.

The music icon known as Prince has revealed plans to release not one, but two brand new studio albums before the end of the year. The highly-anticipated albums are titled Art Official Age and Plectrumelectrum. Both are set to release on September 30 in the US. Art Official Age is a solo album, while Plectrumelectrum is by Prince’s new band, 3RDEYEGIRL.

Both albums, which are sold separately, are now available for pre-order via digital retailers and from Prince’s official website. Early buyers will be able to unlock ‘instant grat’ tracks from each record. The album releases will also be marked by a series of very special events taking place globally, to be confirmed shortly.

“Prince is one of just a handful of visionary artists who have truly reshaped and redefined modern music and culture,” said Warner Bros. Records Chairman & CEO Cameron Strang. “For the past 35 years, he has never stopped evolving, challenging himself, reinventing his sound, and pushing boundaries. In true Prince fashion, he has just given us not one, but two extraordinary albums that express the incredible range and depth of his talent. All of us at WBR are immensely proud to be working with Prince to bring this brilliant new music to his legions of fans around the world, and needless to say we are thrilled to be working in partnership with him again.”

We expect multiples singles and videos to begin surfacing in the weeks leading up to the release of these albums. In the meantime, follow UTG on Twitter for updates.
