The nine-track, 35-minute album is called Piano & A Microphone 1983 and will feature a home studio cassette recording of the singer at his piano from 1983.

A posthumous album from the U.S. musician Prince has been announced on what would have been his 60th birthday.

The album is available now to pre-order on CD, LP, Deluxe CD+LP, digital release and pre-save for streaming.

According to The Boombox, the new album will consist of recordings taken from the very beginning of Prince's career.

The "private rehearsal" took place just before he'd broken through to global stardom and ultimately mirrors his final "Piano & A Microphone Tour" from 2016.

Prince sold more than 100 million records during his career, with his music spanning rock, funk and jazz.


Meanwhile, Rolling Stone reports a group of Prince fans are getting together for a three-day celebration taking place in Henderson, Minnesota, near where scenes from "Purple Rain" were filmed.

"Piano & a Microphone 1983", due out September 21, is music from Prince from 35 years ago.

Among the songs are "17 Days", Joni Mitchell's "A Case of You", "Strange Relationship", "International Lover" and "Purple Rain", the title song of Prince's 1984 hit movie.

"The Estate is excited to be able to give fans a glimpse of his evolution and show how his career ultimately came full circle with just him and his piano".

With first pitch at 7:10 p.m., Prince Night will see the Twins (26-32) battling the L.A. Angels; Lance Lynn (4-4) is set to take the mound against Garrett Richards (4-4).
