The album was recorded in 2010, and was due to be released the following year. Its supporting tour went ahead, but the record was never released. It will now arrive to the public on 30 July 2021 via Legacy Recordings.
At the time, Prince described how the record discusses race relations, political division and social justice. He said in a statement: “The world is fraught with misin4mation. George Orwell’s vision of the future is here. We need 2 remain steadfast in faith in the trying times ahead.”
Ahead of the album’s release, its title track has dropped onto streaming services. You can take a listen below.
The deluxe boxset version of the new album is set to feature the regular 12-track album on vinyl and CD, alongside a previously unreleased full-length concert film from Prince’s show at The Forum in Inglewood, California on 28, April 2011.
