So he's sitting on two albums really?

What's the hold up? Seriously noone still has heard a release date. I don't get it. Just Prince being Prince I suppose.

"Why'd I waste my kisses on you baby?" R.I.P. Prince You've finally found your way back home. Well Done.

Prince's main problem is no record company will pay him big money for his latest music.

And Prince won't give us any music for free, that's my guess: $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

That's what all this waiting is all about >>> money......... imo......

No reason this subject to be locked. What i dont get it is that few months ago 3rd Eye Girl waved from stage with physical cd of Plectrum Electrum and month ago they said they dont know what is on album.Does that mean that Prince lied the fans?

Prince knows the record industry has changed. Artist don't get paid anymore for albums, they make all their money on touring. That's why Prince is always on tour. Once an album leaks, it's all over the internet and the artist makes no money and Prince knows this. He should take a decent cut and tour to get the money he's after. It's just that simple.

Undoubtedly. I sure wish he'd just own up to it. He and his people waste a lot of time and energy lying about why the music hasn't been released.

I think any release in 2014 is doubtful now.

It looks like Purple Rain remaster will come out in November to cash in on the Christmas market and I think that will be it for this year.

The Foo Fighters just finished their new album. It will be properly promoted. People will know that it exists. Prince will get lost in the dust. Nobody will give a fuck about Purple Rain. I hope I'm wrong on that last one, but until he gets a real manager, plus some focus and direction, he'll just be a nostalgia act for the rest of his career. I'm really hopeful for a new album, and that he'll do a proper tour to support the album. And by proper tour, I mean that fans know the dates well enough in advance so they can book ahead to secure reasonably priced flights/train tickets/hotels.

He's not sitting on them, he's waiting for the label to put them out, Warner Brothers will put the Solo record out when its best for them which seems like November for Christmas season.

.

Plectrum electrum is in limbo, because 3EG are a seperate entity and Prince is signed to WB as a Solo artist only. They are still listed on Kobalts Roster so it could come out through that label still, but they may be waiting on the WB albums to drop to try and ride on the back of the promotion.

It's not so much a proper manager he's been missing, it's a label that will pump money into marketing/promotion/funding world tours etc... something that he wouldn't be willing to invest in himself with a financial risk to him and hard to find a label that would as the years passed. Hopefully the WB deal with benefit everyone, they will push Purple Rain I think along with the new solo record, they should really fund a tour too down the line I'd have thought.

And Prince should have released PE last year but for some reason he didn't, so now I belive it wont be released until 2015 after the PE remaster and solo album

I'd have thought the WB deal will have been in negotiaition for a while probably early on last year which may be a reason for the delay, he might have originally thought WB would just take it off his hands but wasnt the case

Let's face it, the guy's sitting on hundreds of albums, really. Is he really that much of a money whore? Surely from all the touring, he must have a very healthy bank account. Right?
