Extra! Extra! Prince To Release New CD Via Newspaper; WB Update

newspaper

Prince's new CD 20Ten (some title) will be released first through a Belgium newspaper on July 10.  An interview took place with the newspaper which teases the release.

Other newspaper deals may follow as deals were trying to be reached.  Warner Bros. was mentioned as releasing the CD to other countries not participating in the newspaper giveaway.  More than likely that means the U.S. as when he did the giveaway before, the U.S. was not part of it.

As we previously reported, Prince met with Warner Bros. Records on Tuesday, and the distribution deal appears to already be in place.  We have learned what was discussed was the deal, but also something else.  So, this distribution deal could actually lead to something else.  Hmm.   I still want a live DVD.

Tuesday night, Prince attended a show by Cassandra Wilson in Hollywood.  As we mentioned before, he is in town for the BET Awards this Sunday where he is recieveng the Lifetime Achievement Award, but is not performing.

Considering the previous 3disc set is now selling for under $5 at Target, I can't say I'm expecting much out of this one.

I don't know what all the wasted column inches are for...Some people need the record set straight for them This new Prince CD represents a new musical nadir in a long list of ever decreasing nadirs for the once great purple one. With tracks like "everybody loves me" and the banal c side re-work of some old jam entitled "sticky like glue" these tracks come packaged wit a third rate newspaPer and third rate art work. What a let down. The last time I will bother buying a newspaper with a free CD.

Dont hold your breath for remasters. If we get anything of the sort they will be butchered to death considering his current beliefs! Such a shame......

Great news Doc & I knew a new CD was in the pipeline! Great to see he is using both his alternative distribution (newspapers) and WB (label) channels to get new music to the people. Let's just hope a consistent global distribution so all countries benefit, followed by a world tour! PS. Love the name 20Ten!
