Third Man Records Releasing Prince’s Shelved 1986 Album ‘Camille’

    An unreleased Prince album called Camille is set to be released by Third Man Records. Prince wrote and recorded the album under the feminine alter-ego Camille in 1984, but the project was scrapped shortly after test pressings for the finished album were produced. “We’re finally going to put it out,” label co-founder Ben Blackwell told Mojo. “Prince’s people agreed – almost too easy.”

    All of the album’s eight tracks have been officially released in some capacity, although never in the same package and have often been hard to track down online. Some of the songs went on to feature on Sign o’ the Times, while others have been part of soundtracks, B-sides, and deluxe reissues. Last year saw the release of Welcome 2 America, Prince’s first posthumous LP of all unreleased material.
