I still think it's a reference to Around The World In A Day Deluxe Edition. For a number of reasons.

1. The "7" references could be in relation to his 7th album.

2. An ATWIAD Deluxe would fit in well with the previous releases, given that the Estate seem stuck in the 80s.

3. Raspberry Beret is a hugely well known song. I knew the lyrics to practically the whole song long before I listened to my first Prince album. This is the kind of song they can market a re-release with.


I can get behind this, but at this point - with Spicer, Londell, Sharon and all of them being spiteful assholes - I'm not holding my breath.

I knew the lyrics to practically the whole song long before I listened to my first Prince album. This is the kind of song they can market a re-release with. 4. I could be wrong about this and I'd like someone to correct me if that's the case, but I think I remember reading that after Purple Rain, Prince had recorded another album of similar quality material that he abandoned in order to change direction with ATWIAD. If that's true, these songs would make for excellent bonus material for a deluxe edition.



he mentioned in the 1985 Roling Stone interview, that he had an album's worth of songs that could have been the followup to 1999. And there were songs recorded post Purple Rain. (the last being When Doves Cry in March) However, it was also between this time that ATWIAD was recorded (everything but HELLO and some edits and overdubs and other tinkering was done by the end of 84)

and ATWIAD was reased just 2 weeks after the final PR show....by which time about half of Prade had been recorded.... so there just is not going to be a vast amount of new material from then...it was all just too quick. (and, not that it was all well planned out, they hoped to inclued the early version of Raspber Beret on thw 1999 SD but they could not find it.

Also if it was that why not use music from that time? What they did use inclued one of his screams from "the Max." So maybe it is 7 as in the song 7 (not to be confused with Seven).




Thanks for the info. Maybe you're right. Do you think it's likely that they'd do a deluxe edition for the Love Symbol album though? Is that album held in high regard amongst Prince fans?

Yeah I'm more than likely wrong but whichever way it goes, they do seem to be hinting at some sort of release for this year. So I think ATWIAD has as good a chance as any. It wouldn't be my personal preference. I'm still not even halfway through the unreleased material I've found so far anyway so I'm probably not in as much of a hurry for a new release as the rest of you, but if I were to choose which project I wanted next I would go for a big collection of all his ballads released in a 3 or 4 disc set just in time for Valentine's day. As much as I love songs like Let's Work, Xtraloveable, etc I find that it is songs like The One, Adore and Insatiable that pull me back in to Prince-Land.

No way the '7' has anything to do with a ATWIAD SDE or whatever. It's just a theme for 2+0+2+3 and the fact that it is seven years since Prince died, so proabably just a '7' themed celebration with some exclusive celebration release of a unreleased version or live version of 7.

Yeah, realistically speaking, you're most likely correct. But come on, man. Allow a girl to dream! lol

I love 7 Accoustic. It's the only CD single I own.

I used to have the New Power Generation CD single, but seem to have lost it. I really liked its "b-side", Loveleft, Loveright. It was a slight song that didn't really go anywhere, but I thought it was a cool groove.

After looking through Spicer's tweets and replies, all I see are cryptic comments, empty promises, and cutesy GIFs. But, I'm just an idiot on the .org, so what would I know. rolleyes

Don't even downplay it! Loveleft Loveright is fire. That is the most pimpin song Prince ever did, imo. Love his confidence and attitude on that song. Also love the rest of the Larrabee Sessions (especially Play and Get Off).

I even like the stuff with Robin Power. Not for her, I sorta tune that stuff out but it's that fucking groove. It sounds good at every speed.

Between the Larrabee stuff, the extended version "New Power Generation", and "Bold Generation" I'm totally obsessed with every iteration of that song. So good.

Does anyone else get annoyed every time the Prince social media accounts tweet about the anniversary of some past release? That seems to be all they do anymore. like, yeah, it's cool that X number of years passed since that album, when do y'all plan on releasing something new for people to talk about?

There's so much more to explore than what Prince released in his lifetime but his estate seems content to just keep the low effort nostalgia-fest going...

But - that's out already. In many places.

Had to go listen just cuz. What a fucking great song. God damn.

Strange. Its a song i still dislike to this day.

Tried to listen to it again just now, and nope. I really don't like it, and i don't know why.

''7'', the accoustic version, the remixes, yuck.

Strange huh.

As if there's something with the vocals that is not right... maybe it's that, i dunno

Also the samples are super annoying to me,

and the drum rhythm and percussion is also not my thing.

also the lyrical content...

"...And we will see a plague and a river of blood
And every evil soul will surely die in spite of
Their 7 tears..."

So far my unasked and unimportant opinion. wink

Exactly.

Was thinking the same.

But not even sure if (bold) will happen.

I don't think ther will be any release this year except for some streaming maybe.

But let's hope we're all wrong.

Exactly.

And Official Paisley Park is even worse...

I'm not even following them anymore.

I also unsubscribed from the official Prince mailing list.

I don't need new purple hoodies, which was the drop that mgot me mad, the very last shit email from two days ago.

Fuck them.

Yeah, I wouldn't get my hopes up. Technically last year we did get music/video released and it was a rehash of shit that has already been put out multiple times.

He has the final version so not much differences from the released versions.
Hopefully the two other earlier versions of the album will be found and released in our time becasue these will never be leaked I think. Those two versions have alternate/longer versions and edits and different mixes of I think most tracks.
