New Prince Album ‘Welcome 2 America’ Announced, Lead Single Released

Published: Thursday 8th Apr 2021 by Sam

In life, Prince‘s catalogue of music was vast. And now, posthumously, another project is set to join the Purple One’s lengthy list of releases.

Full story below…

The singer’s Estate has confirmed the release of the “new” album ‘Welcome 2 America’ on July 30. 

Long spoken of and speculated about, word of the project first surfaced in 2010 when she legendary star embarked on a like-titled tour that spanned two years.

The lack of formal release for the LP was never addressed by Prince, who died in 2016.

As for what folk can expect, the set is billed as “a powerful creative statement that documents Prince’s concerns, hopes, and visions for a shifting society, presciently foreshadowing an era of political division, disinformation, and a renewed fight for racial justice.”

Describing the album at the time of its creation, Prince is quoted as saying:

“The world is fraught with misin4mation. George Orwell’s vision of the future is here. We need 2 remain steadfast in faith in the trying times ahead.” 

In tandem with today’s news was the release of the project’s title track. Check it out:

‘Welcome 2 America,’ the album, is available to pre-order by clicking here.

    Hmm. not really crazy about the idea of releasing new music under an artist’s name after they have passed away. There’s no way of knowing whether or not Prince would have ever authorized the release of this music in it’s current form. But on the other hand it is nice to hear more music by him so I will give it a chance.
