The highly-awaited unreleased album by Prince, Camille, is finally set to be released via Jack White’s Third Man Records.
Fans Will Finally Get to Hear Prince’s Camille Album in Full
The unreleased LP was recorded in 1986, under the feminine pseudonym “Camille.” In the album, Prince sings in a higher-pitched style. And after all these years, Third Man Records co-founder Ben Blackwell has confirmed that the music legend’s estate has approved the release of the eight-track record for the first time.
There is no official release date for the album. However, Blackwell told Mojo magazine, “We’re finally going to put it out. Prince’s people agreed – almost too easy.” We can also confirm that the album will have a total of 8 songs.
Some of the tracks meant for the album Camille were released in 1987’s Sign O’ The Times. These songs are “Housequake” and “If I Was Your Girlfriend” while “Rebirth Of The Flesh” got featured on a 2020 deluxe edition of the LP.
Last year, Prince’s estate and Sony’s Legacy Recordings released the posthumous LP Welcome 2 America, which was recorded by The Purple One in 2010 and features previously unreleased songs as well.
Prince’s backing singer Shelby J. shared how the influential musician – who passed away in April 2016 at the age of 57 from an accidental fentanyl overdose – was in good form and full of energy when they were in the studio.
She recalled, “He was in such good spirits during its time. I remember that as I look back at photos because I take a lot of photos and just remember where he was with his energy and how that helped us. He really cared about the world. And you can really hear that he’s a poet. He’s a storyteller. When you listen to the songs on this album, you’ll be able to hear that.”
We hope we don’t have to wait much longer to hear Prince’s album!
