When they met in person last April, she told him that she wanted to make an album that sounded like Sly and the Family Stone. It’s common knowledge that the music industry has changed dramatically over the past two decades, and Prince started the conversation by pointing out the challenge of releasing music in the current market and asking the room for advice. “Those guys put out 10 albums a year, just to put them out there. Fox 9’s Rachel Chazin was especially insistent about Spotify’s potential, explaining that as a 23-year-old, her generation listens almost exclusively to streaming music.
Lil Wayne almost has as many albums as I do.” He pointed up to the studio’s speakers. “And then what do you do when you find something on Spotify that you like? “Listen to more tracks by that person on Spotify.” Turning to his right-hand-man, Trevor Guy, Prince asked how quickly they could get Hill’s album onto the service.
“How do you get an album like this out quickly, while also recognizing its inherent value? What you’re hearing is money.” The typical routes were suggested by the room: Music videos. Though it’s hard to believe Prince was totally unaware of Spotify before last night—his own catalog, including his two most recent albums, is available via the service—he seemed to latch onto the idea as one that seemed especially promising.
The Current’s program director Jim Mc Guinn suggested that maybe the success Prince is hoping for doesn’t happen overnight. After a long pause, she said, “I’d play Bunkers.” “I suppose I should have told you it’s a radio station,” Prince replied, smirking.

He came across her in an interview she had conducted with a European magazine; when asked who she’d like to work with, she had answered Prince. The pair recorded Hill’s new album, , over the course of two or three weeks, which Prince says is “the fastest album he’s ever made.” Now he’s trying to figure out how to release it. Direct questions about the timing of the new release (“Sooner than you’d think”), who played on the record (“Lots of folks”), and whether it’s coming out on any particular label (“We’re figuring that out”) were met with vague, unilluminating answers, and Prince seemed more eager to turn the tables and ask his guests the big questions.One thing’s for sure: His Purpleness has impeccable taste.Between Judith Hill, FKA Twigs, and Kendrick Lamar, Prince has hosted and championed some incredible and forward-thinking artists at his Chanhassen compound this past year.Although Paisley Park may not be at the center of the pop universe like it once was in the mid-’80s, it has re-emerged as a sort of petri dish for some of the most intriguing soul-infused pop artists of the future. （ ）https://youtu.be/pl S-q7puz6Yhttps://m.youtube.com/watch? ” And with that, we were led back out of the studio and into Paisley Park’s smaller performance space, where Hill and her band performed a fiery, funky four-song set for the crowd.
