Musicology, 3121, and Planet Earth will be released on vinyl in 2019.
The Prince Estate and Sony Music have announced physical re-releases for a collection of the late legend’s title works.
According to a press release published Monday, Legacy Recordings is releasing Musicology, 3121, and Planet Earth. The three LPs from the 2000’s are being pressed on “highly collectible, limited-edition purple vinyl” with new exclusive merchandise and will be available on vinyl for the first time and will also be available in CD format on February 8, 2019.
Last August, Prince’s estate and Sony Legacy released 23 albums from his NPG Records catalog to streaming services.
Prince’s Estate also approved the posthumous 2017 deluxe edition release of Purple Rain, featuring unreleased tracks, and 2018’s recovered in-studio demo tape, Piano & a Microphone 1983. Last month, the Estate announced a weekly series debuting rare music videos from Prince during the 1995-2010 NPG period.
A forthcoming Prince memoir is reportedly slated for release during the holiday season.
