Prince to release two new albums on September 30th

on August 25, 2014, 7:52am

It’s been four years since Prince’s last new album, 2010’s 20Ten, marking the longest stretch he’s gone between new releases in his entire career. Making up for lost time, the legendary rocker has announced not one, but two new LPs, both of which will be released on September 30th.

ART OFFICIAL AGE, a solo album, consists of a 13-song tracklist. Over the last year or so, Prince has previewed a number of the tracks, including “BREAKDOWN”, “BREAKFAST CAN WAIT”, “THIS COULD BE US”, and “FUNKNROLL”. Update: Listen to “CLOUDS” below.

PLECTRUMELECTRUM, meanwhile, marks the debut album from Prince and his band 3rdEyeGirl. This record contains 12 tracks, all of which are also caps locked. Of these, we’ve heard “PRETZELBODYLOGIC” and “FIXURLIFEUP”. The album also includes an alternate version of “FUNKNROLL”.
