Back in 2010, Prince recorded a statement album that he dubbed Welcome 2 America – then he shelved it.
The album documented “Prince’s concerns, hopes, and visions for a shifting society” and “presciently foreshadowing an era of political division, disinformation, and a renewed fight for racial justice.”
Great news for fans is that the album is now set to see the light of day from July 30, and will arrive on vinyl, CD and in an incredible Deluxe Edition. Pre-order now at JB Hi-Fi.
