1-800 NEW FUNK
Pop Pop Pop
1-800 NEW FUNK is a compilation album of the artists signed to Prince’s label, NPG Records. All the songs are written by Prince except George Clinton’s Hollywood1. 1-800 NEW FUNK is the name to Prince’s soon to be launched merchandise website 1800newfunk.com and phone number of the order line of that same store.
1-800 NEW FUNK was released to coincide with Warner Brothers’ release of Come but also under urgency because the artists were signed to Paisley Park Records which was a subsidiary of Warner, whom was about to shut it down due their dispute with Prince over his contract. The two albums were ultimately released just three days apart.
Prince established NPG Records as a result and appears on this compilation under the name Prince love symbol. The album charted at 45 in the R&B list, and contains one new Prince song Love Sign (referencing his new name Prince love symbol), a duet with Nona Gaye, daughter of Marvin Gaye.
