Prince announces 38th studio album Hit and Run with 3RDEYEGIRL

PRINCE! That’s right, Prince! After making his presence felt during the Baltimore riots with his Rally 4 Peace concert and dropping two albums simultaneously last year, the ageless purple one will be releasing another full-length, as BBC has reported. Hit & Run (referencing Prince’s many pop-up concerts of late), like last year’s Plectrumelectrum, will feature Prince’s current backing band 3RDEYEGIRL, consisting of Donna Grantis, Ida Nielsen, and Hannah Ford Welton. Welton’s husband, Joshua, has a co-writing credit with Prince. No word on the exact release date yet, but according to the band, it will be “hopefully soon,” definitely this year. Your Mom, Warner Brothers, is releasing it.

In terms of the album’s content, a couple tracks have been detailed. “Hardrocklover,” which Prince recently posted to SoundCloud, turns out to be the album’s first single. “1,000 Hugs and Kisses,” an unreleased song written in the early 90s, will also find release, as will a new, “really industrial sounding” version of “This Could Be Us” from Art Official Age.

So yes, Prince!
