was there ever even any veracity to that being a 90s track or was that just princevault bullshitting again

[Edited 7/20/21 6:28am]

AFAIK, it was just an assumption based on the handwritten lyrics, where "Bone ranger" was crossed out and changed to "Lone ranger" ("Bone ranger" being mentioned in 18&Over, hence the assumption it could be a track from '94/'95).

Ok I have it now. Likely won’t get round to listening til tonight, which is about 10 hours away. Will post my thoughts later but any questions or queries anyone has, don’t hesitate to ask. Spoilers forthcoming so stay away if you want some surprises next week.

.

a) I'd like to know how many songs are not singed by Prince

b) differences of 1000 Light Years From Here and When She Comes, from the HNR2 version

c) The Yes song is a instrumental piece or not

.

Thank you

There was a recent article reviewing the album, which mentioned the track Yes as having a line about summer, and so be a good "companion" to the track Hot Summer. That's all I know.

seems that HOT SUMMER has been released 'exclusively' on TIKTOK.

I don't have tiktok, I don't know her, I don't know what she does. I'm old.

but so the song seems to be on there now and promotional push is moving forward it seems. most likely HOT SUMMER will then be on spotify and all the other platforms at the end of the week as the final single before the album drops.

I’m afraid I’ve been warned to wait til Monday to post what I had intended tonight - namely, long winding in-depth descriptions of each track. Have them all here so can spent some time refining I guess. Sincere apologies people, it’s beyond my control and I don’t want to compromise myself or my position for future releases - only specialist music magazines have been allowed to post earlier due to various industry machinations. Can answer some questions though. Rest assured midnight Sunday night I’ll post on every cough and spit in this album, if it hasn’t leaked by then that is. Doubt it will though, security very tight - CD would have to get into the wild I imagine. Could happen. I’ll be posting first thing Monday regardless.

PS - When She Comes has almost entirely different lyrics and vocal harmonies. Instrumentation differs also.

PPS - YES has full P vocals.

PPPS - 1000 Light Years From Here also has completely different lyrics, alternative arrangement and meaning.

Plenty of surprises on this.

He’s on them all, lead on vast majority. Two songs have more of a ‘Big City’ approach to vocal harmonies. It works, fear not.

WSC and 1000 LYFH sound completely fresh here. I was surprised.

YES is a full P song with his lead vocals.

I guess it could be 90s. On my notes I’ve written ‘low-key Act of God but good’ and ‘When Will We B Paid’.

Put me down as not incredibly psyched for this one.

I think I've heard nearly half the album by now and only Same Page Different Book really grabs me and even that one is something Prince could toss off in a day. Also, as has been mentioned, the pricing options on it really have the stench of Rip Off about them and I'm damned if I need another hits laden concert. It's going to get rave reviews regardless based soley on it being posthumous - as crticis do with deceased artists.

I almost forgot I ordered the bastard which is a big change from the anticipation I felt with 1999 and SoTT SDE. Or even Orginals.

Lol, ok - there’s a few Digital Garden ‘sha!’ exclamations in it. To these ears, it’s excellent material if you like the type of vibe that’s reminiscent of What’s My Name - only not on downers but some good quality 70s pharmaceutical cocaine, none of that toxic street nonsense. This is classy stuff.

And the last thing I’ll say for now is that it really is incredibly cohesive - both thematically and in production. It’s an album about slavery - to inherited hierarchies, to false histories, to generational lies, to technology, to religion … and to love. About an astonishing biological miracle on a backwater rock in infinity allowing themselves to be used as batteries by a tiny minority of oppressors whom we give power to due to them having more paper with numbers on it. About how nearly all of us are drowning in our chains - and the ones who aren’t are the ones that should be. It’s an album about what it means to be homosapien at the dawn of transhumanism. It’s an album about where we’ve been and where we’re going … even if it takes 1000 light years to get there. It’s damning in the darkness yet keeps a light shining. It’s a concept album - in the best possible sense of the term. It has laser focus - something we all wanted for a long time. It’s not a ragtag grab from that year’s Vault pile. It’s Jenna - take once piece out and it all falls apart under its own weight. It’s light/shade in perfect harmony. And those harmonies …

can you imagine something like this was written about the album that has hot summer in the middle of it
