Prince’s early-2000s output — much of it out of print — is featured in the next wave of reissues from the singer’s estate.
Prince’s 2001 LP, The Rainbow Children, and 2002 studio album, One Nite Alone …, will both be reissued on vinyl for the first time, while two live albums, the four-disc One Nite Alone … Live! and the double-LP One Nite Alone … The Aftershow: It Ain’t Over!, are also set for official rerelease.
All of the reissued LPs — pressed on 150-gram clear (The Rainbow Children) or purple vinyl (the One Nite Alone series) — arrive April 17th. The four albums were initially released on Prince’s own NPG Records, and marked his first LPs since he reverted his name from the “Love Symbol” back to Prince following his legal battle with Warner Bros.
Additionally, the Prince estate and Legacy Recordings will release Up All Nite with Prince: The One Nite Alone Collection, a four-CD/one-DVD set that combines One Nite Alone … Live! and One Nite Alone … The Aftershow: It Ain’t Over! with the out-of-print concert film Prince Live at the Aladdin Las Vegas, documenting his December 15th, 2002, gig. On Thursday, the Prince estate shared “Pop Life” from the Aladdin show:
All of the reissues are available to preorder now at the Prince site. Last year saw the release of a massive 1999 reissue, as well as the rerelease of three rare late-Nineties LPs, The Versace Experience (Prelude 2 Gold), Chaos and Disorder and Emancipation.
