Robert Glasper Pays Tribute To Prince With Unreleased 'Sign O' The Times'
Robert Glasper is currently flying high from producing the soundtrack to Don Cheadle‘s feature film directorial debut, Miles Ahead, yet that isn’t all that the Houston, Texas pianist is up to.
With the film a proven hit at the box office and garnering rave reviews, Glasper has shifted focus to creating another memory for music fans using the late, great Prince Rogers Nelson as a muse.
Fueled by the prolific + soulful spirit of The Kid, Glasper has made his own arrangement pegged to “Sign O’ The Times,” which you can read his thoughts below:
“This is a arrangement I recorded in 2015 as part of my “Covered” album. Unfortunately we were not allowed to put in on the album. Prince didn’t really like people recording his music lol..But I feel now is a good time to let everyone hear it! This is my favorite prince joint “Sign O The Times”..the message is still relevant..Prince you are missed..Thank you for unapologetically being you.”
