Hey, there’s a new Prince album. And it’s arrived, quite a bit earlier than I thought it might! Time to take Prince’s Welcome 2 America out of its shiny shiny wrappings.
I honestly didn’t expect to get this today; while I’d preordered it and it is out today (also on streaming services if you just want the music), I figured the ongoing pandemic and lockdown story surrounding Sydney would mean I’d have to wait a while. Which is fine, of course — a total first world problem — but also something that made me smile when it turned up just now.
For those not aware, I’m a big admirer of Prince’s musical work. Dude himself was… unusual, shall we say… but his output really did fit that often overused description of “Genius”.
Which new Prince album should you listen to?
(I’m going to have to update this one once I’ve given Welcome 2 America a good listen, I suspect.)
