Prince to release two new albums on the same day

Music icon PRINCE is set to serve up a double treat for fans by releasing two new albums on the same day next month (Sep14).

The Purple Rain hitmaker has unveiled plans to release solo album Art Official Age, the follow up to 2010's 20Ten, and a collaborative project, Plectrum Electrum, with his all female band, 3rdEyeGirl.

A statement from Cameron Strang, Warner Bros Records Chairman and CEO, reads, "Prince is one of just a handful of visionary artists who have truly reshaped and redefined modern music and culture.

"For the past 35 years, he has never stopped evolving, challenging himself, reinventing his sound, and pushing boundaries. In true Prince fashion, he has just given us not one, but two extraordinary albums that express the incredible range and depth of his talent."

Art Official Age and Plectrum Electrum will hit retailers on 30 September (14).
