Paris Saint-Germain have announced that they are teaming up with the estate of the late Prince for a new vinyl and clothing partnership.
The Ligue 1 outfit are paying tribute to the “Prince of the Parc” by releasing an exclusive limited-edition 7″ vinyl, alongside two limited-edition apparel capsules.
The vinyl features the 1989 Prince track ‘Partyman’ and a previously unreleased live rendition of ‘Cool’, taken from Prince’s final gig in the French capital at Le Zénith on June 1, 2014.
In a nod to the The Purple One, the limited edition 7” has been pressed on collectible purple vinyl.

Fans can also pick up two limited-edition apparel capsules, which have seen the club joining forces with former Prince associate Trevor Guy and his personal late-career clothing designers, Cathy Robinson and Lori Marcuz, for a new fashion range.
The exclusive collection includes an official 2020-21 PSG fourth kit jersey printed with Prince’s characteristic symbol alongside gold and metallic hand-sewn leather features.
PSG are also launching a “Prince of the Parc” streetwear essentials collection, which consists of Prince-inspired t-shirts, crewnecks, hoodies and hats.
