Is it time for an announcement about what's being released by the Prince Estate this year?

Wasn't it around now or June/July when we found out about 1999 Super Deluxe? You would think something would at least be announced pretty soon. Maybe by Prince's birthday?

Any insiders know anything?

hopefully we'll get some news on his birthday.

or better yet, a surprise release on his birthday of something like, say, originals 2 and then
announcement of 1 or 2 super deluxe releases later this year.

we need some releases people, more more more please smile

but you know, we'll probably get an announcement on his birthday, saying that there will
be a 'big announcement.....soon!'. some things never change smile

who knows, WB and the estate might be like "oh but we released LIVE! just now and we're
not about to over saturate the market people, it's enough for this year. besides, all people
were hoping waiting and praying for was the release of LIVE! which is fantastic, it's release
was a 1st on streaming, breaking records. blablablablabla blahblah "

you know the drill people, you know the drill disbelief



and true love lives on lollipops and crisps

They shouldn’t have to worry about the CV. They don’t even need to print CDs. Just make a new deal with TIDAL

They should release something while everyone still stuck at home. Now things are opening up again. People will be dying to go out and buy a CD, so its a good time to release something anyways. People will take precaution. But they’re worried about this pandemic hurting sales. All they gotta do is release something on streaming services. Or a great idea is to make a deal with TIDAL, boom. They’ll do the marketing for you. You don’t need a physical release. They hardly sell anyways.

I've been thinking about this a lot as we've gotten closer to P's birthday. Ideally we get a streaming release of some kind of album next month like we did with Originals last June, and an annoucement of a Super Deluxe for the holidays. Personally I would love Originals Vol. 2 released on all streaming platforms next month/July.

Yes please. It’s been about 7 months since we got some new material!

I’m guessing originals Vol.2 and SOTT deluxe. Although Parade deluxe was supposed to be g2g.

Here I sit in my lonely room, waiting 4 some announcement.....

I’m guessing that Warner Bros are deliberately holding off on announcing anything until after Sony release Rainbow Children / One Nite Alone. Announcing a new release (especially something a bit pricey like a super deluxe set) may result in some customers cancelling their ONA pre-orders in favour of some previously unreleased material. Although they may be competing companies, it works in their best interests not to step on each others toes.

Since they won’t have the time to promote a new release for June 7th I reckon they’ll mark the occasion by making a big announcement then. That gives Sony a little over a weeks grace to sell as many copies of ONA as they can. It better be a big announcement too. They lose the rights to publish Prince’s Warner albums by the end of this year (possibly a bit before). They’ll probably bump whatever vault album they had planned in favour of pushing one last super deluxe.

I could be entirely wrong, but that’s my logic anyway.

Originals was announced in April and released in June.

1999 deluxe was announced in September and released in November.

So normally we have a two month wait after announcing the release.

So maybe something in August. However a release in the summer would be most welcome.

It makes sense to release in November, to catch the Christmas season.

Welcome to "the org", laytonian… come bathe with me.

You refer to show #1 from P&M PP Gala? Despite its low video quality it seems like a multi cam professional recording to me.

I dig the Originals release as well as all the deluxe releases. Still, I would prefer something closer to his last days as a release. Kind of like Deliverance. There is so much material and we only get a trickle. Diehard fans only have 2-3 decades of life left; let the floodgates open!

Agree, looked at it a bit longer and it seems that this is just a loop of a few shots of 20 sec over the audio of the first show.
