The Prince Estate in Partnership with Legacy Recordings Announce Next Wave of Physical Titles in Definitive Prince Catalog Reissue Project arriving Friday, May 29

The Prince Estate and Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment, are pleased to announce the first round of physical titles to be issued in 2020 in the ongoing definitive Prince catalog reissue project. These titles come from the incredibly intriguing and fertile period of 2001 and 2002 and will be available on Friday, May 29. Pre-order titles here:

The new batch includes two very different studio albums released just six months apart—2001’s The Rainbow Children and 2002’s One Nite Alone… – plus Prince’s first official live albums from the tour that occurred in between those two releases. One Nite Alone…, the 4 LP set One Nite Alone…Live! and the double LP One Nite Alone: The Aftershow…It Ain’t Over! will each get their first-ever vinyl release in limited-edition purple, while sought-after title The Rainbow Children will be available on CD for the first time in decades and on a crystal-clear double LP with limited-edition custom rainbow slipmat.

In addition, the five disc collection Up All Nite with Prince: The One Nite Alone Collection will make the CDs for these sought-after releases widely available for the first time. Combined in a beautiful slipcase with a 48-page bound book, One Nite Alone… and the two live albums are packaged with the long-out-of-print bonus DVD Prince Live at The Aladdin Las Vegas for an amazing document of the musical breadth of early 21st century Prince.

Watch “Pop Life (Live At The Aladdin Las Vegas)” here:

One Nite Alone… The Aftershow: It Ain’t Over! will also be available for the first time as a 2LP set, pressed on purple vinyl. One Nite Alone… The Aftershow includes highlights from three of Prince’s epic late-night aftershow performances. Previously unavailable as a physical stand-alone release, One Nite Alone… The Aftershow was originally released on CD as part of the One Nite Alone… Live! box set. The album features an hour of amazing jams and includes guest appearances by George Clinton and Musiq Soulchild.

In addition to making Prince Live at The Aladdin Las Vegas physically available as part of the Up All Nite with Prince set, Legacy Recordings will also roll out individual music videos for songs from Prince Live at The Aladdin Las Vegas on digital services from February 20 through April 17. Featuring largely the same line-up from One Nite Alone…Live! (plus guest vocalist Nikka Costa), the setlist includes favorites from The Rainbow Children (“1+1+1 Is 3,” “The Everlasting Now”) plus killer Prince deep cuts (“Strange Relationship,” “Gotta Broken Heart Again,” “Pop Life”) and even covers of James Brown (“Pass The Peas”) and Led Zeppelin (“Whole Lotta Love”). The first video out today is “Pop Life,” a favorite from Around The World In A Day and can be viewed here:
