“I didn’t want to do a double album, but I just kept writing... I always compare songwriting to a girl walking in the door. You don’t know what she’s going to look like, but all of a sudden she’s there.” Prince, November 1982
Considered one of the most iconic and
influential double albums in rock history, Prince’s 1999 was released at a major
turning point in the artist’s career. After years of being relegated to the R&B charts,
he experienced his first true crossover moment with the mega-hits “Little Red
Corvette,” “1999,” and “Delirious,“ shattering barriers with his revolutionary blend of
rock, funk, R&B and new wave pop, and making history by being one of the first
black artists to have their videos in heavy rotation on MTV.
This timeless album has been remastered for the very first time.
