A PRINCE cd back in the day was an event and tonight will be no different.
At 7:07 P.M. PST Lotusflow3r.com goes live and what happens at that time will be "epic". Everyone should be watching at exactly 7:07 P.M. PST
Prince's new 3 cd set which includes his new protege will be on Lotusflow3r.com tonight, which is also Prince's return to the web of having a whole new galaxy for fans to explore.
The long wait will be over for fans as the site is set to debut tonight at 7:07 P.M. Pacific Time The galaxy will include the 3 new cd's along with 2 new videos from Prince, Crimson & Clover & Chocolate Box and the new one from Bria Valente, Everytime.
Scott Addison Clay shared with us the video for Chocolate Box but instead of describing it, we will wait for you to see it when it debuts tonight. There will be hours and hours of full screen videos and photos. There are also bells and whistles that are unlocked with Prince trivia. You can play the guitar called Sonny named after Sonny T.

Prince is slated to launch his new interactive member-based website, LotusFlow3r.com on March 24th and has three new studio albums, LOtUSFLOW3r, MPLSoUND and Elixer, a collaboration with his new protégé Bria Valente, which will all be available for digital download on his website at launch time and also bundled together in a three-disc set for only $11.98, available for purchase exclusively at Target and Target.com. The new website will offer fans exclusive content including digital downloads, concert tickets; sneak peeks at upcoming events; live concert footage; exclusive imagery from past albums and other exclusive photos for an annual membership fee of $77.
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".
