Prince announced a pair of new albums today on ABC’s Good Morning America,and he didn’t even have to make an appearance. Instead, he sent the members of his current backing band 3rdeyegirl to the show to speak in his stead.
As the new song “Clouds” played in the background, guitarist Donna Grantis said, “The big announcement is that Prince will be releasing new music very soon.”
That seemed a bit vague, but happily, drummer Hannah Ford elaborated, saying that “It’s going to be a double surprise. There’s going to be two albums released, one of them is a Prince solo album called Art Official Age, and the second one is the album we play on, called PlectumElectrum.” They are both scheduled for release on Sept. 30 and available for pre-order today.
