1999 [reissue]

Warner Bros. Records

Two thousand zero zero.

Warner Brothers’ re-release of the original song 1999 to mark the arrival of the year 1999 and capitalise on the turning of the Millennium celebrations. Prince in turn recorded 1999: The New Master and released that under his own NPG Records label on 2 February 1999, as a counter to this Warner Brothers reissue.

Because Warner Brothers owned the master recording, Prince was able to put out his independent release by adding new content and completely recording the song. However, the Warner Brothers release fared better in the charts, reaching number 10 in the US, Prince’s re-worked peaked only at 150.
