Prince Piano And A Microphone 1983 CD




Minneapolis, MN – June 7, 2018) Today the Prince Estate, in partnership with Warner
Bros. Records, announced the release of the Piano And A Microphone 1983 album on what
would have been Prince’s 60 th birthday.

The nine track, 35-minute album features a
previously unreleased home studio cassette recording of Prince at his piano captured in 1983.

The album is available now to pre-order on CD, LP, Deluxe CD+LP, digital release and pre-
save for streaming.

“This raw, intimate recording, which took place at the start of Prince’s career right before he
achieved international stardom, is similar in format to the Piano And A Microphone Tour that he ended his career with in 2016,” said Prince Estate entertainment adviser Troy Carter. “The Estate is excited to be able to give fans a glimpse of his evolution and show how his career
ultimately came full circle with just him and his piano.”

The private rehearsal provides a rare, intimate glimpse into Prince’s creative process as he
worked through songs which include “17 Days” and “Purple Rain” (neither of which would be released until 1984), a cover of Joni Mitchell’s “A Case Of You”, “Strange Relationship” (not released until 1987 on his critically acclaimed Sign O’ The Times album), and “International Lover”.

The album also includes a rare recording of the 19 th Century spiritual “Mary Don’t You Weep” which will be featured during the end credits of Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman in theaters August 2018.

For fans of Prince’s spontaneous live medleys,
tracks 1-7 of the album are presented in that same format as they were originally recorded.
