Good new for the fans of Prince. Indeed, a new album of previously unreleased music from The Purple One is due out on September 28, according to "Variety". Atom Factory, the company now overseeing the late musician’s estate, is behind the album.
Troy Carter - CEO of Atom Factory - gave some details on the project and explained that, as opposed to a compilation, it will be “more time-specific”:
ùMichael Howe, who’s been working with us on the archive, has done a tremendous job of finding some special pieces of work, and one of the pieces that he found, all of us fell in love with it and decided this was special enough for fans to hear. So we’re putting the final touches on it—it’ll come in the fall.
The estate also recently launched two new websites, the fan-centric Prince2Me and the archival “annotated discography”. A Prince memoir is also going to be releases later this year: he submitted 50 handwritten pages to a publisher before his death in 2016.
