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.


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.


Be great if you’re right, it’s a fantastic track.

There you go, mr. I'm always right. Had to say something negative of course. What a child.

? After all your trolling, I am a child? The artwork is so amateurish it seems fake, I m sorry. I really hope it is.

More amateurish than the artwork of newpowersoul, lotusflow3r or plectrumelectrum ?

Yes, because in this case they just cut Prince from the original artwork, to put it in a white font.

And what about the dvd there was supposed to be ?
Seems like there would be a single version with the white backfont, and a deluxe edition with the original artwork and the dvd ( I gave up on the possibility of a blu ray)

heard rumblings that the tracklist may have been WILDLY different to the rough sketches that were on princevault prior, though that looked to be more of a smattered list of contenders rather than any sort of order, interested to see (if this is legit...) that it's more or less the same tracks that we knew previously.

It looks to be some kind of digi-pack, so perhaps a live album/DVD or an album of outtakes will also be included?

this is all just speculation based on a very low quality picture, but does it look like it's just going to be the studio album? looking at the thickness of the CD case as presented in the picture, it looks like it could possibly contain another cd or two, or if not another cd then a booklet of sorts, pictures, etc?

i'm going to be ROCKING OUT to w2a all summer long regardless, but i wonder how far they've gone with the era/concept here or if they've just decided to stick to the album as purportedly finished and sequenced in 2011... it'd be nice (and they could charge more!) if they also had a live set, not that i think this is a particularly worthwhile time in his live canon, or maybe a disc of additional material that was considered for the album/present on any alternate sequences? or maybe it's just the album.

i'm so excited

i've been posting nonstop about how excited i am for this and i still don't think i've accurately conveyed how excited i am for this.

even if the songs aren't as good as i'm expecting them to be (and to be fair, i'm kind of expecting greatness out of a few of these tracks, and several such as 1k light years and when she comes are already fucking fantastic...) this has potential to be the most interesting vault release thus far. originals was a mess, the sde's were great (and woefully incomplete...), but nothing released so far has really been revelatory, and i think this album has that potential to really shine new light on this stage of his career, and provide a listening experience that'll feel great and fresh.

anyway

Surprised but not disappointed that this is for real.

The set looks great and the songs which have been released in some form already are some of my recent favs anyway.

But, did you all forgot that Schkopi said a month ago W2A will be a CD+ a concert ?
That s why the artwork seems fake to me, or at least there would be another edition.

They also said a month ago that Crystal Ball would be announced in March.

Of course they were wrong, I was the first to point out an april release for CB was impossible, and months before that it was obvious that Sony gave up on the post-WB reissues

And u have been the 1st saying W²A will be released with a live performance...and u have been the 1st saying that SOTT Box would be released.....u are the 1st of the finished work ...the one who comes after the storm to say what people should have done to avoid the storm.
