A Happy Birthday to the late Prince
In honor of what would have been the late icon’s 60th birthday, the Prince Estate, in partnership with Warner Bros. Records, has announced the release of Piano & A Microphone 1983, which is also a nod to his final concert tour in 2016.
Consisting of nine tracks, the album features a previously unreleased rehearsal cassette recorded in Prince’s Kiowa Trail home studio in Minnesota at his piano in 1983, a year before he released his six-time platinum album, Purple Rain.
The eight-time Grammy winner was tragically found dead at his Paisley Park estate in April 2016. It was later determined he died of an accidental overdose of fentanyl.
