The 12-track LP, set to drop on July 30 via Legacy, "documents Prince’s concerns, hopes, and visions for a shifting society, presciently foreshadowing an era of political division, disinformation, and a renewed fight for racial justice," according to a press release. "The world is fraught with misin4mation. George Orwell’s vision of the future is here. We need 2 remain steadfast in faith in the trying times ahead," the icon said of the album back in 2010. A deluxe edition of the album will also include a concert film shot in 2011.
In addition to the announcement, the album's funk-laden title track was also released today. Listen to it above.
