“I feel that we’re on the brink of something. It is going to be strict and wild and pretty.” — Prince, 1986
Overflowing with musical ideas and topical lyrics that sound just as relevant today as they did when they were initially released, Prince’s iconic double album Sign O’ The Times captured the artist in a period of complete reinvention. The final 16-track album included just some of the countless songs Prince recorded in the prolific period of 1985–1987, which saw the dissolution of his band The Revolution, the construction of his innovative recording complex, Paisley Park, and the creation (and ultimate abandonment) of the albums Dream Factory, Camille, and Crystal Ball.
This September 25, The Prince Estate, in partnership with Warner Records, will reissue Sign O’ The Times with the classic album remastered for the very first time, and featuring 63 previously unreleased tracks, as well as a previously unreleased 2+ hour video concert performance from Prince’s legendary vault that illuminate his wide-ranging and prolific creativity in this era.
- CD1–2 / Sign O' The Times album remastered for the very first time by original mastering engineer Bernie Grundman (16 tracks).
- CD3 / 7” edits / 12” mixes / promo versions.
