As the King of Pop, Prince made sure to own the rights to all his music which unfortunately led to many recordings being taken out of circulation if he couldn’t make what he felt he deserved. Since his death in April of 2016, many of his songs have been reissued and his estate has announced the release of three titles through Sony Music next month.
“Chaos and Disorder” was Prince’s final album of new material through his original deal with Warner Bros., and “Emancipation” is a triple-CD set released later in 1996; both albums will be released on purple vinyl for the first time on Sept. 13, along with the rare cassette-only “Versace Experience (Prelude 2 Gold)”
Many tracks were remixed or edited specifically to make the cassette “its own seamless sonic universe,” according to the announcement, as well as a rare Prince collectible. A reproduction of the cassette was released in another limited edition for Record Store Day 2019.
