Interesting article from Super Deluxe Edition on the process and delays of pressing vinyl in the industry at the moment. Explains the seemingly long delay between the announcement of W2A and the actual release. Also mentions 'several major releases' being pushed back to 2022... could this include 'Crystal Ball'???

By not using the original cover and simply cutting Prince out they’ve completely missed the concept - one that also clearly speaks to the album’s title. Is that a gaudy, tacky, plastic model of Paisley Park I see spinning in the atrium?

Is this definitely for real? The tracklist appears to be exactly the same as the 'assumed' tracklist on the Princevault page - Album: Welcome 2 America - Prince Vault . Seems a bit too on the nose that the assumed tracklist is the same as the actual tracklist unless the estate have taken their lead from Princevault!

the princevault entry for the album was changed/updated earlier tonight to include the new information from the picture above. so it's the other way around.

The highlight for me will be 1000 Light Years From Here. Been wanting to hear this song in its entirety since the second half of it showed up as a fusion with Black Muse on Hit N Run Phase 2. It will be interesting to see what changes he made to the song (if any) for Hit n Run vs the original on W2A.

I think it’s the whole song on H&R2 - not edited, just mixed into the outro of BM.

Yes, I also checked PV and noticed the new info.
Curious to hear 1010 (Rin Tin Tin) with it being from 94/95..

Apparently When She Comes is a different version so I'm curious to hear it. I really like the one on HNR2.

Agree. I guess they could have used the entirety of the original image but I wonder if that was meant to be used just for the W2A tour? Regardless, it's better IMO than the Originals cover which looks like it was done on Microsoft Paint. Maybe the tradition of album covers that don't quite work carries on lol.

Shame it's not a two disc set with a second disc of other songs recorded at this time.

However I will still be desperate to get the album

i still find it weird to make big announcements on the day he died. but this year it's a wednesday so they might just make a song and dance about a surprise release with pre-orders for the physical cd and lp opening on the 21st and then the digital launching friday 23rd.

i mean, that would work just fine for me lol i just want it sooner rather than later.

Not sure where I read it, but, according to what I read at least a few years ago, the original song is much longer with many interesting twists and turns.

Can't recall the source, but here's to hoping it is right.
