25 Giugno 2020
 

Il prossimo 25 settembre la Warner ripubblicherà una nuova versione dello storico album di Prince, “Sign O’ The Times”.

Il disco è stato totalmente rimasterizzato e la versione deluxe (8 cd / 13 vinili) conterrà ben 63 brani inediti e ben due concerti: uno registrato a Utrecht nel giugno 1987, durante il tour a supporto di questo LP, l’altro – datato 31 dicembre 1987 e disponibile in DVD, ci mostra il live benefico di Paisley Park che segna l’unica collaborazione sul palco tra il folletto di Minneapolis e Miles Davis.

L’edizione superdeluxe contiene inoltre un libro di 120 pagine con testi scritti a mano, fotografie, materiale di studio e altre rarità risalenti a quella stessa epoca.

Inoltre la Third Man Records di Jack White realizzerà una serie di sette singoli in vinile 7″ contente i quattro singoli pubblicati nel 1987, i due singoli promo della Warner e due versioni dell’inedito “Witness 4 The Prosecution”.
