So Prince announced a little while ago that he is releasing three cd’s this year. Two of new material done by himself, the other by his protege Bria Valentine. To my shock and dismay, the Man is releasing all three together at Target of all places on March 29th. At the ridiculous price of $11.98 for all three discs.

I understand why he is choosing a big retailer, it enables him to bypass a relationship with a record company. My issue is that Target does not exist in Canada, I will either have to order it online or hope he is releasing it at his official site.
Regardless I am completely stoked about the two Prince albums and even the Bria Valentine one as he produced, wrote and arranged the thing.
