Prince's new online venture, LOtUSFLOW3R.com, will debut on March 24. The site will offer digital downloads of the three new albums previously announced with a March 29 street date, in CD format, at Target stores. Two sources in Prince's camp also have confirmed that the rumored price of $77 for one year's subscription to the site has been formally settled upon. The picture above is an exclusive screengrab provided to us by Prince's web developer, Scott Addison Clay, who recently gave me an advance tour of the Web site. That main image, derived from the website design of the same name, will be the user's portal into the online "world" of that album, complete with lyrics, artwork and new photos, in addition to the tunes. Two other "worlds," one for each of the other two Princely releases, also exist on an animated 3-D plane, in an arrangement that Clay compares to the popular game Myst. The album "MPLSoUND," as previously reported, is Prince's electronic counterpart to the guitar-heavy "LOtUSFLOW3R," while "Elixer" is the debut offering from Prince's latest protege, Bria Valente. Check out the covers for "MPLSoUND" and "Elixer".

  1. Do we have to pay the $77 fee just to get access/purchase the LotusFlow3r CD’s or can I just buy the CD’s without joining the bisexual website? I live in Canada and unfortunately there are no Target stores here. Unless I get to see Bria Valente’s Lotusflower in various positions, there is no way I’m paying $77 to access that site.

  10. Man, this cover is so ugly, it looks like a video game or something, Prince should have much better artwork than that. It’s a shame. Anyway, I guess some things will never change…

    Good to learn the web site is finally about to open, but how these albums are going to be distributed outside the US ? Is Prince going to deal with a record company to distribute the 3 albums ?
