Prince to release two albums on the same day

Posted on

Prince Art Official Age

One of Prince’s defining qualities as an artist is his almost startling prolificacy. While he’s not flooding the market quite as severely as he was during the ’80s, when he was putting a new album seemingly every couple months, along with writing for a stable of proteges and filling his vault with material that for one reason or another he felt was unworthy of release, he still keeps busy.

According to an announcement on this morning’s Good Morning America, Prince will release two albums on Sept. 30. One, entitled Plectrum Electrum, was recorded with 3rd Eye Girl, the all-female band that seems to have been his primary concern for the past couple years. He’ll also release a solo album, Art Official Age, his first since 2010’s 20Ten, which he teased earlier this summer.
