After teasing yesterday that a “major announcement” was on its way, Prince has revealed details of not one, but two forthcoming albums.
The first, Plectrum Electrum, has been in the pipeline since the start of the year when the singer held a press conference at Lianna La Havas’ house and performed a series of guerilla-style surprise gigs in London.
Prince has now revealed that not only will Plectrum Electrum be out in September, but it will be released alongside another full-length album, Art Official Age – this one without the help of his band 3RDEYEGIRL.
The album will feature 13 songs, one of which, ‘Breakdown’, has already been revealed, and is available to pre-order already.
Both Plectrum Electrum and Art Official Age are set for release on 29 September. The full tracklist for Art Official Age is on the right.
