Prince – Around The World In A Day

20.00

Prince was an American singer, songwriter, musician, record producer, dancer, actor, and filmmaker. A guitar virtuoso and multi-instrumentalist known for his eclectic genre-crossing work, flamboyant and androgynous persona, energetic live shows and wide-ranging singing voice. Prince is regarded as one of the greatest, versatile and most successful musicians in the history of popular music. His innovative music integrated a wide variety of styles, including funk, R&B, rock, new wave, soul, psychedelia, and pop. Prince also pioneered the late 1970s Minneapolis sound, a funk rock subgenre drawing from synth-pop and new wave. Around the World in a Day is his seventh studio album, and the third to feature his backing band The Revolution. It was released on April 1985 by Warner Bros. Records. Departing somewhat from the commercial sound of his previous release, the massively successful Purple Rain (1984), the album instead saw Prince experimenting with psychedelic styles and more opulent textures. Pitchfork described the album as “a brave and deeply personal project, exploring sounds and ideas that were almost shocking coming from a pop icon at his peak.”
