The band that backed Prince during the ‘Purple Rain’ era has reunited for a recent interview with ABC News to share their time with the late icon.

The Revolution has started touring a year after Prince’s death. They share how they’ve been all coping since Prince’s passing and how the fans receive them during the tour.

Hit play below.

This is just what a Prince fan needs…

Are we surprised that not one, but TWO posthumous music projects by Prince are to be released?

Considering his vault which reportedly holds tons of unreleased music, I, as a Prince fan, expected nothing different. I think I can speak for all Prince fans that this is great news! The first of the two projects is to be released Nov 22nd.

Via USA Today:

Warner Bros. and NPG Records announced Friday that they will premiere ‘Prince4Ever’, a collection of 40 of Prince’s greatest hits, in the U.S. on Nov. 22 (the record will be available worldwide on Nov. 25). The compilation, which includes classic tracks such as When Doves Cry, Kiss, Little Red Corvette, Purple Rain and Raspberry Beret, will also contain a previously unreleased track, “Moonbeam Levels”. The song was originally recorded in 1982 as part of the sessions for 1999. It will also include a 12-page booklet featuring never-seen-before photos shot by legendary photographer Herb Ritts.

‘Prince4Ever’ will be followed by a deluxe, remastered edition of ‘Purple Rain’ — the original soundtrack to his 1984 film of the same name — to be released in early 2017. That edition will be accompanied by a second album of previously unreleased material. The label says these plans were already underway and approved by Prince before he died on April 21.

 

Definitely looking forward to the 2nd project. It’s aways nice to hear the classics, but it will be even better to hear  unreleased tracks.

The Late Prince’s sister, Tyka Nelson, gave an exclusive interview with ‘Entertainment Tonight’ while touring Paisley Park.

Tyka opened up about her brother’s death five months ago, which is still hard for many of us to get over. She says to ET’s Kevin Frazier that it wasn’t hard because she knew Prince’s death “was coming”.

“I had been preparing for 2 years. So, I knew that it was coming.” Tyka says.

Fresh, Luke James, Bilal, Mint Condition, Morris Day & the Time, Judith Hill and Liv Warfield, the New Power Generation featuring Morris Hayes plus members of 3RDEYEGIRL.

“The family is extremely excited to provide an opportunity for the world to participate in the tribute for our brother Prince,” Prince’s half-sister, Sharon Nelson, said in a press release. “This concert will be an event not to be missed.”

There’s no word on if the event will be televised.

Prince, a Minnesota native, died April 21 of an accidental painkiller overdose at his Paisley Park compound in Chanhassen, Minnesota. He was 57.

Reports of the Late Great Prince’s estate, Paisley Park, up for sale has been all over the internet, but according to CBS Minnesota , the reports are false!
On Saturday, Bremer released the following statement:

“Contrary to some recent media reports, Bremer Trust, the special administrator for the Prince Rogers Nelson estate, has no plans to sell either Paisley Park or the property referred to as the ‘Purple Rain’ house. There is no additional formation to share on this topic.”

The statement did not mention any properties outside of those two.

Prince was found dead in an elevator in Paisley Park on April 21. According to Billboard, Prince told close friends he wanted to turn his Paisley Park home and studio complex into a museum. Now, the trust company overseeing his estate — likely with the backing of Prince’s siblings — is exploring the idea to open it up as a tourist attraction that some have compared with Elvis Presley’s Graceland.

Bremer Trust, the special administrator of Prince’s estate, received permission from a Carver County judge to hire entertainment industry experts to help determine how best to make money off Prince’s intellectual property.

The family of the late great Prince has finally announced a date to give a tribute to the Purple One, who suddenly died in April. The concert will take place at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on October 13th, 2016. Performers for the tribute are to be announced in the near future.

The family released a statement to Associated Press:

We are excited for the opportunity to bring everyone together for the official family celebration of Prince’s life, music and legacy, and there is no better place to do it than his hometown of Minneapolis.

We are honored by the artists who will pay tribute and grateful to those that have worked so hard to make this celebration possible.

Tickets will go on sale in August. Hopefully, it will be televised for those who cannot attend. *crosses fingers*
