Wow, they might release something that wasn’t recorded in 1983 now, then...

What's that referring to?

Millions less than the Universal deal... Wondering what Prince would think to tell him all his post WB output is worth no more than 30 million... lol

...post 1996 work then.

Could only mean an album released with all new material... ?

No one else is waiting for, lets say 1996-2003 material right now (right ?)

-

all that (usual loud) buzz... - we'll see when I got something real in my hands (yawn)

This is good news, IMO. Finally, an outlet for Prince's post-WB material, which frankly, I'm more interested in.

First 2 releases should be Piano & a Microphone 2016 and Black is the New Black.

It won't since they know the WB deal but I can't wait for the overpriced and butchered releases they dump onto the market. If you thought Warner was bad, you ain't seen nothing yet.

If they announce a new album of studio material at the same time as the official deal announcement they’ll win me over. Otherwise, I’ll be cautious...

In an interview during the Musicology era Prince discussed his deal with Sony saying “they’ve just been beautiful all around”. Why all the skepticism?

The way they handled Hendrix doesn't give me much hope.

I'm guessing the future with Sony is bare reissues of all the non-WB albums "remastered", a new album of unreleased studio content that they inevitably mess up in some sort of fashion (brickwall, combining multiple takes, bringing in a third party to finish songs) and seemingly random vault releases.

This is terrible news. I hope I am wrong but after what Sony did to the Michael Jackson releases I don't hold much hope. Here some info for those who don't no. First MJ release was a greatest hits from "This Is It" this had one new song and album versions of hits with the also the movie. (That actually was decent) The next album was "Michael" 3 of the ten tracks were sung by an impersonater and not Michael the other 7 songs were produced ok but none of the songs were fully the way Michael left them. Then there was immortal a remix album for cirque. This would of been better if they had got the actual producers who worked on the music to make this remix album just like they got George Martin and his son to remix The Beatles for the "Love Album" Then we got Xscape which was remixed by Timberland. That was ok but I don't like the thought of anybody touching Prince's music let alone making songs into duets that didn't happen like they did with Michael and Justin Timberlake. Then the latest release has been another greatest hits. Sorry for the rant but I really don't hold much faith in Sony.

well it will make a lot of orgers happy, i guess, since it seems like everyone is always talking
about how there needs to be a greatest hits/best off release for the 93-16 period.

i could live without it, but i guess it's a part of the market that hasn't been covered yet. sony
might decided to release that. with 1 new song to make us buy it lol

after that, who knows, there are so many finished albums from the post warners period that
are just waiting to be released that it doesn't seem like they would have to scrape the barell
like they seem to be doing with the michael releases. i also think that the backlash of them
remixing or adding guest artists to prince tunes would be enormous so that might happen for
1 release and then no more.

OR that prince/justin timberlake outtake, remixed by timbaland could become the shocking
surprise number 1 single of summer 2019 and we could be stuck with those kind of shit ass
releases forever lol
