Has the Purple Rain reissue been delayed/cancelled?

It really looks like the Purple Rain reissue has yet again been delayed or cancelled.

It was scheduled for early 2017 but there has been no word on it since the inital annoucement. It doesn't show on any release schedules either.

It would be nice to get some kind if official statement on the status if this release.

early 2017 doesn't mean the first week of january smile

i figured we'd be hearing something mid february and possibly a release in or around april.

your thread title is very misleading though since there is no official cancellation at all yet.

However it was suppose to be January. If it was going to be out it would be on the release schudule for this month. It is not and I will not be surprised if we never see it. WB was never really interested in this project they just wanted to put out another greatest hits that no one was interested in buying in the first place. Same stupid company still doing stupid things and now they can't blame Prince anymore.

Great thread title. 4 days in to the new year and the release is cancelled.

.

EARLY 2017. That could be anywhere up to and including April/May before it's time to start getting antsy about a lack of news.

I'd expect to see them aiming to release it around the date he passed. I reckon we'll hear something about it around the end of the month.

It's gonna be released. There is nothing stopping it from being released now. When it will be released, I'm gonna crank "Darling Nikki" up so fucking loud, that I'm gonna bust my eardrums like popcorn.

Is the title of this thread based on any actual INFORMATION?? If not, it needs to be removed or retitled.

I had always assumed it would be released in March/April.

The press release said "early next year". January has never been discussed.

Says who? There was never a date given.

The OP needs to change the thread title or laura needs to link to the January announcement.
It'll be out this year. Probably in April, maybe early summer, hopefully not next holidays, definitely 2017.

What a completely misleading, useless thread. They said early 2017. And they don't need a long lead time between announcing a date and releasing it. 4Ever was announced in mid-October and released at the end of November. They can wait until March to announce a release date and still have it out by April.

My guess is that it'll be released to coincide with the first anniversary of his death. That would make the most sense from a marketing point of view: WB aren't stupid... sad

Is this serious? January 4, and suddenly it's all dread and negativity. "Early 2017" can be as late as April or May. It's been announced, ergo you knowing about it. Chill out - it'll get here when it gets here.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Seriously worried? LOL

Most likely they'll time it with the Grammy's so they can promote it to a huge audience & maybe tie it to a Prince tribute that's surely to happen.

Yeah, let's be honest... without Prince here, no one's gonna be changing their mind on what will and wont happen. Which is surprisingly quite depressing to think about.

Even though its nice to have that reliability factor, it never feels right without him here. sad
