Star shuns record labels and chooses to release the music independently
Prince is planning to release three new albums in 2009.
The singer says he has almost completed two solo albums, tentatively titled ‘MPLSOUND’ and ‘Lotus Flower’, as well as a record with his protégé Bria Valente called ‘Elixir’.
‘MPLSOUND’ allegedly features a guest appearance by Q-Tip, and Prince says the electro-tinged album sees him experiment with “new ways of recording”. ‘Lotus Plant’, which was previewed on US Radio station Indie 103.1 in December, is said to be a more guitar-based record.
Prince previewed new song ‘There Will Never B Another 1 Like Me’ online on December 22. The track appeared on mplsound.com, although the website is currently inactive.
