“[Prince] said he believed in albums, not singles: “I’ve finally got something that is a cohesive statement.”
Not to be confused with the upcoming album from his group 3rdEyeGirl, Prince’s funky solo record will feature production from mostly himself, rising producer Joshua Welton, and the track “This Could Be Us,” inspired by an Instagram meme made of him and Apollonia Kotero riding a motorcycle from his 1984 masterpiece Purple Rain.
The “Little Red Corvette” singer also divulged his opinion about radio’s need for new artists to be added into radio rotation and his annoyance with the time it takes for the music industry to release his content.
“Every No. 1 song, every Top 10 song, every song in the Top 40 is at least six months old,” he said. “We should be able to make music and put it out now.”
Yes Prince, we agree, put out more greatness, and put it out now.
