Prince's new album to feature 'so many hits'

Prince's new album features "so many hits".

The 57-year-old musician has completed his 38th studio LP, which will be titled 'The Hit & Run Album' in reference to his latest tour, and his backing band 3RDEYEGIRL have teased it sounds "phenomenal".

They said: "It's phenomenal; there are so many hits on this album. It's super experimental."

The 'Little Red Corvette' hitmaker released his last albums 'Art Official Age' and 'Plectrumelectrum' last September and trailed his upcoming collection by premiering new single 'Hardrocklover' online earlier this month.

And speaking about what fans can expect from the iconic musician, 3RDEYEGIRL went on to say it will please lovers of his classic albums because it features "hit after hit".

Speaking to radio station BBC 6 Music, the trio said: "Super hardcore Prince fans that know every song he's ever recorded - we refer to them as 'The Purple Collective' or 'The Purple Army' - this album is absolutely for them, because it's super funky.

"It's weird, there's a lot of experimental sound. It's just hit after hit and definitely caters to those fans who just love to hear what Prince has to say, rather than wanting to always hear that classic 'Purple Rain' Prince sound."
