Prince Amps Up Funk and Soul on Two New Albums This Fall

'Plectrumelectrum' and 'Art Official Age' mark the artist's return to Warner Bros. after acrimonious split from the label.

It's been five years since Prince put out a new record in the United States, since he limited the release of his 20Ten LP, but that will change this fall. On September 30th, the artist will release two new records: Plectrumelectrum, his long-teased album with the group 3rdEyeGirl, and his recently announced solo LP, Art Official Age. He will reportedly hold a series of special events and live dates around the world, details for which are forthcoming, to celebrate the albums' release. Both records are available separately as pre-orders, via websites, and include 'instant gratification' downloads.
