THE PRINCE FAN ALBUM

A home 4 purple music

We are calling artists from around the world to compose a song for Prince. The goal of this project is to show how much Prince has influenced various generations of musicans, and to connect inspired artists with a wide range of listeners worldwide.

THE PRINCE FAN ALBUM will be the opportunity to finally record your thoughts, your bass, keyboard or guitar phrase with a purple touch and get it out into the world. Hi- or Low-Fi, pure audio or music video, whether one or ten minutes, in English, Spanish, Arabic or instrumental: it’s up to you - simply go purple!
