Between releases from Prince’s famed Paisley Park vault, the superstar’s estate is finding room in its busy release schedule to reissue albums of Prince’s post Warner Brothers career, those whose rights was since awarded to Sony Legacy in partnership with The Prince Estate.

The Legacy deal has already produced reissues of 3121, Musicology, Planet Earth in February 2019, followed by Rave Un2 and Rave In2 The Joy Fantastic in April. The third batch of reissues is slated to be Emancipation, Chaos & Disorder plus the much sought after The Versace Experience*, a cassette issued to attendees of Paris Fashion Week over 8-10 July 1995 in promotion of Prince’s then upcoming album The Gold Experience; this batch is expected to be released on 13 September, although this is pending an official announcement. Stay tuned to our new releases page for firmed up dates.
