Prince’s ‘The Hit & Run Album’ Dropping By End of 2015


Prince released two albums last fall, but that won’t stop him from dropping another before 2015 comes to a close. In a new interview with BBC 6 Music, Prince’s band, 3rdEyeGirl, confirmed an “experimental” new LP called The Hit & Run Album coming this year.

“Super hardcore Prince fans that know every song he’s ever recorded — we refer to them as ‘The Purple Collective’ or ‘The Purple Army’ — this album is absolutely for them, because it’s super funky,” 3rdEyeGirl told the BBC. “It’s weird, there’s a lot of experimental sound. It’s just hit after hit and definitely caters to those fans who just love to hear what Prince has to say, rather than wanting to always hear that classic Purple Rain Prince sound.”

Earlier this month, Prince released an aggressive new song called “HARDROCKLOVER,” which will appear on the new album alongside a unreleased deep-cut called “1,000 Hugs and Kisses” and a new version of a new version of Art Official Age‘s “This Could Be Us.”
