Piano and a Microphone 1983 is a posthumously released demo album by Prince, released on CD, vinyl, and digital formats on September 21, 2018. It is the first album released by the Prince estate consisting solely of material from his archive, the Vault. The album was discovered in Prince's vault at Paisley Park as a single cassette tape. The music was recorded in 1983 in one take at Prince's Kiowa Trail home studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota

Piano & A Microphone 1983 is the first posthumous stand-alone album of previously unreleased material by Prince. This raw, intimate recording, which took place at the start of Prince's career right before he achieved international stardom, is similar in format to the Piano & A Microphone Tour that he ended his career with in 2016, said Prince Estate entertainment adviser Troy Carter.

Album · 2018 · 9 Songs. Unearthed from roughly the period between 1999 and Purple Rain, these raw cassette demos of Prince accompanying himself on piano, as advertised, are less songs than sketches. The one that grew up to be the most famous, Purple Rain, is more like an exquisite doodle at about a minute and a half; ditto his cover of Joni Mitchell's 1971 A Case of You. )

Piano & A Microphone 1983 is Prince’s second posthumous album and is expected to be released September 21st, 2018. The album consists of early versions of released songs, along with some new releases from Prince’s famed vault. Piano & A Microphone 1983 Q&A. Writers Dr. Fink, Joni Mitchell, Lisa Coleman & 3 more. Vocals And Piano Prince.

Piano & a Microphone 1983 is a nine-track, 35-minute album featuring a previously unreleased 1983 home studio cassette recording of Prince at his piano. The album will be released Sept. You can listen to Mary Don’t You Weep below. The remainder of Piano & a Microphone 1983 is a trove of rarities, captured at Prince's Kiowa Trail home studio in Chanhassen, Minn. Included on the album are early takes of 17 Days (the B-side of the When Doves Cry single), Purple Rain and Strange Relationship (eventually released on Sign O’ the Times). There’s also a cover of Joni Mitchell’s A Case of You and the slow jam International Lover, originally released on his 1999 album.

Its prosaic title is a precise description of the album's content - it is nothing more than Prince sitting at a piano, playing whatever comes to his mind for just over half an hour - yet even if the record delivers upon that promise, it's not quite as simple as it seems. For one, there's a level of intimacy on Piano & a Microphone unlike anything else in Prince's catalog
