Prince - Piano & A Microphone 1983 album download

Piano & A Microphone 1983 is just Prince noodling at a piano and singing Purple Rain and eight other songs in a one-take recording made at his home studio 35 years ago. Warner Bros. Records releases the album on CD, vinyl and digital formats Friday. Recorded on a simple cassette, the 35-minute worktape brings the music of Prince full circle, said Troy Carter, adviser to the Prince estate

So far, his estate has treated that music with care; an expansive reissue of Purple Rain came out last year, but Piano & a Microphone 1983 is the first posthumous album culled entirely from Prince’s vault. Instead of piecing together one of the many projects he envisioned and abandoned, the executors found a session from Prince’s home studio, recorded to cassette in a single take; now and then you can hear him sniffling. Alone with his piano, Prince sounds unusually relaxed, mindful of the contradictions that always seized him yet willing to imagine their reconciliation.

Along with Piano and a Microphone 1983, the Prince estate plans to release another new album of unreleased Prince material next year as part of a deal with Tidal. An exact release date and title have yet to be announced. Recently, the Prince estate partnered with Roots drummer Questlove to organize an orchestral tour, 4U: A symphonic Celebration of Prince, which kicks off September 6th in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

Redirected from Piano & a Microphone 1983). Piano and a Microphone 1983 is a posthumously released demo album by Prince, released on CD, vinyl, and digital formats on September 21, 2018. It is the first album released by the Prince estate with material from his archive, the Vault. The album was discovered in Prince's vault at Paisley Park as a single cassette tape. The music was recorded in 1983 in one take at Prince's Kiowa Trail home studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota.

Piano & A Microphone 1983 is the first posthumous stand-alone album of previously unreleased material by Prince. 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 & A Microphone Tour that he ended his career with in 2016, said Prince Estate entertainment adviser Troy Carter.
