Prince - Welcome 2 America CD/2LP
Recorded in the spring of 2010 and then mysteriously abandoned by Prince before its release, the statement album "Welcome 2 America" documents Prince’s concerns, hopes and visions for a shifting society, presciently foreshadowing an era of political division, disinformation and a renewed fight for racial justice.
The album features some of Prince’s only studio collaborations with the bassist Tal Wilkenfeld, drummer Chris Coleman and engineer Jason Agel; with additional contributions from New Power Generation singers Shelby J, Liv Warfield, and Elisa Fiorillo, and keyboardist Morris Hayes, who Prince recruited to co-produce the album.
