You're Welcome America; Posthumous Prince Album Drops Today Amongst Industry Accolades


It's 76 degrees in Minneapolis today, but for fans of Minnesota's favorite son, it might as well be Christmas.

That's because for the first time since his untimely death five years ago, His Royal Badness — The Purple One — Prince Rogers Nelson has new music out. 

"Welcome 2 America," recorded in 2010 with the New Power Generation, is the first posthumous album mined from the legendary vault of recorded music left behind by the artist, and early reviews say it's a return to funky form to a music legend whose final releases before his death had not fared well.

Rolling Stone declared the release "funkier, sexier,  superflyier" than most of his latter-day music, giving it 3.5 out of 4 stars. The Chicago Sun-Times declared the album a triumph, and The Guardian seemed gobsmacked by the new tracks, declaring it his best albums of the last two decades and in a 4 (out of 5) star assessment. 

Fans wanting to judge for themselves where the new album stands in the Prince lexicon can find it on Apple Music where, in a release from the company, they are invited to "listen live for free as Apple Music Hits takes you through Prince’s Welcome 2 America release, his treasure trove of classics on Apple Music, and so much more."
