Prior to Release in Target Stores
Los Angeles, CA…March 16, 2009 – In an unprecedented effort to manage his own content, Prince is proud to announce the official launch of his new, highly anticipated website LotusFlow3r.com on March 24th, 2009.  As soon as the site goes live, fans will have access to new content including digital downloads of his new studio albums LOtUSFLOW3r, MPLSoUND and Elixer, a collaboration with his new protégé Bria Valente; concert tickets; sneak peaks at upcoming events; live concert footage; exclusive imagery from past albums and other exclusive photos for an annual membership fee of $77.  Throngs of fans have already signed up on the existing beta version of the website for email updates and are waiting in the wings to become members and experience the world of Prince in a whole new way.
On the evening of March 28th, Prince will be performing at three different locations with three different bands throughout the Los Angeles area.  How he plans to do this is still a mystery and even his musicians are not sure of all the details, but Prince fans have come to expect the unexpected.  In addition, it was previously announced that Prince will play an unprecedented three nights in a row on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on March 25th, 26th and 27th and will return to help Leno end his reign on the late night show by performing on his next to last show on May 28th.
LotusFlow3r.com is an entire interactive galaxy, conceived by Prince and created by Scott Addison Clay and Anthony Malzone, that takes the Prince fans into three distinctly different worlds emanating the feel of the three new albums in a high-end 3-D style design.  Currently, the beta version of the site hosts new tracks “Colonized Mind” from the new LOtUSFLOW3r album, “DiscoJellyfish” from the new MPLSoUND album and “Another Boy” from Elixer with Bria.  In addition, the site is slated to release a new music video from each of the three albums on the launch date including “Crimson and Clover” from LOtUSFLOW3r, “Chocolate Box” from MPLSoUND and “Everytime” from Elixer.  Prince also plans to give his fans access to tickets to live shows, concert footage from past performances, exclusive imagery from his past albums and other exclusive photos, exclusive information about any private or secret shows, as well as exclusive content that will only be available in the first week of the site launch and may never become available again.  Fans who join the site early will also receive a boutique-quality “Founding Member” t-shirt that displays the central image from the galaxy.  Over time, Prince will continue to give fans more access to high-end never released photos and video content and much more.
Prince collaborated with Malzone and Clay throughout the design and development of the entire website.  In fact, the three often fed off of each other’s creative ideas.  For instance, Prince wrote the music for the track “DiscoJellyfish,” which inspired Malzone, who visualized a design and took to his computer programs to design graphics and artwork to communicate the feel of the song, which then, upon seeing the designs, further inspired Prince to continue to write the song.  Everything within this galaxy is a creative portal derived from the brilliant mind of Prince, beautifully executed by Malzone and Clay.
Newsweek.com has exclusively released the new cover art for Bria’s Elixer and Prince’s MPLSoUND albums:  click here for Newsweek story .
Since his debut in 1978, Prince has had numerous hits on the Billboard Charts. In 2004, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and has won six GRAMMY® awards, an Academy Award® and a Golden Globe®.  From the moment he stepped onto the music scene, he has captivated fans with his continual reinvention as an artist and remains one of the most celebrated performers of all time.  In 2006, Prince won a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 10th Annual Webby Awards.  The founder of the awards called Prince “a visionary, who recognized early on that the web would completely change how we experience music.”

    I clicked on the purple orb and it is doing NOTHING!!! AHHHHHHH

  4. Dang, exclusive content only in the first week??!! what if my pay day dont match up with that.. wish this all didnt come down 2 money! But guess i shouldnt be surprised…I been a fan since day dot and am back and forward at the moment whether this is worth the effort.. having said that i love the concept but seems that u lose out if u short on dollars, what about being a bit more understanding of the stresses alot of people are going thru with the current economy!?

    great 2cu back on track p but think of the times we are in, know making this comment is not gonna reduce the cost but some people will miss out because of this and i think that is a real damn shame.. Especially for those fans who have supported u from the beginning…

    anyways, will be interesting 2c


  5. SWEET Bring it Baby Prince ooh wee ..I think I need some cholate 2 calm my nervs 😉

    Thanx Doc Funk

  6. Where’s my purple pass?!Gimme that!lol Thank the lord for freedom of speech and expression!But I am sick of these “so called fans” that seem to have a problem with keeping things positive and all they seem to want to do is COMPLAIN!Blah!Don’t go to Prince sites or his shows if all you are going to do is moan,complain and not have a good time!I am sick of all of this negativity out there!Geesh!Get a life for gosh sake!!Any fan of Prince knows that their money is usually well spent!And the new site for those who join first will reap the benefits no doubt!Time does change everyone PERIOD!It’s about progression,innovating,evolving.Any TRUE Bandaid (the people who keep the artist or band together) will stick with the artist.Granted sometimes things don’t work out how we planned…remember noone is perfect!I think it is great what Prince is getting ready to do and I think it will reveal a new beginning for him,personally & professionally.As far as Prince studio work not cutting it anymore…ha!And I suppose the cookie cutter,no talent,lip syncing,wardrobe malfunction,autotune jokes on the radio now are supposedly better?!Pleeeaaassseee! Get on the boat …..throw up a peace sign and give it up for some positivity!

  7. ‘What do you think of that purple funk? – Dr. FB’

  8. I hope he sticks with this date on the 28th and doesn’t switch it up anymore.

  9. That lifetime membership for npgmc was the lifetime of the club..not the lifetime of the member. geez….
    I was a npgmc member and was fully satisfied what i recieved. unreleased music, first dibbs at concert tickets and soundchecks and aftershows.
    Bring on Lotusflow3r Papi 😉

  10. Always,

    Peace,Love,& Joy

    One Love

  11. >>>>>FrankieDJ <<<<<SORRY I disagree with you all except “paying another life time membership” well time has changed things change and as for paying for a “$25.00 concert again like in 86″well it is 2009 that has been 23 years ago everything has gone up in price change is good and maybe your dealing with the issue more of change and looking back can you honestly say you haven’t changed and are the same exact person clothes style ect.? <– most likely not otherwise you ight find yourself a misfit times have changed and time goes we learn to adapt to changed imanged if we were to still wear all those glowing colors and the hair style and our syntax was the same……all in all Prince is NOT the “water down verson” you speak of I wish you peace once you find peace within yourself maybe then you’ll find happiness

    You can’t get any more REAL then this a true Prince Fan from way back even before Purple Rain came along EXCITED and the anticipation is growing LOVE what you do keep doing U
    No Haterzzzzzzzz! NO NEGATIVITY!!!!!!

  12. That’s right Prince show MJ..U an original artist not a copy cat artist . That have 2 copy Ur O2 arena record 2 prove he got it again…………..

  13. i look 4word to it all whoo hooo
    thanks prince and docfb

  14. I can ‘t wait to hear the new three CD set 🙂

  15. I hate 2 bust ur bubble, Prince fans, but I can’t afford his whims anymore, and I’m offended by his comment about the economy, he ain’t struggin’! I’m not paying another lifetime membership(remember that?) 2 get jacked again 4 what? So I can pay a sick amount 4 a ticket? Prince is a live act, 2 me, and his studio work doesn’t cut it anymore. So I’ll keep my loot and go see Purple Reign again! Until he does a $25 concert like in ’86 at MSG, when it was done 4 the love of music rather than the dollar, until I have that feeling again, I’m out yall. I can’t afford it anymore and besides, he’s the watered down Prince version now anyway! The real fans know what I’m sayin’.

  16. That giant sucking sound you hear is $77 coming out of my wallet.

  17. Love it!

  18. I’m so in! Bring it on Prince! woo hoo!!!

  19. Great info doc!!!

    I’m gettin that Founding Member t-shirt :whoooot:

  20. Sounds like Prince has got himself another cash cow….And he’s herding all of us in. When’s my stimulus check coming???

  21. Got my funds in order. Bring it on!!! Thanks P!!!!!!
