Los Angeles, June 7 (IANS) On late musician Princes 60th birth anniversary on June 7, his estate announced that it will release the first full album titled “Piano & a Microphone 1983” since the deluxe edition of “Purple Rain” last year.
It is a collection of solo songs recorded at home by the singer.
The estate released the first song from the album, a cover of the spiritual song “Mary don’t you weep”, which will be featured during the end credits of Spike Lee’s “BlacKkKlansman” film, which will be released in August, reports variety.com.
