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

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!
