Prince - The Rainbow Children (CD)

The Prince Estate and Legacy Recordings release the first round of physical titles to be issued in 2020 in the ongoing definitive Prince catalog reissue project. These titles come from the incredibly intriguing and fertile period of 2001 and 2002.

Prince's 24th studio album, The Rainbow Children was initially sold on Prince's trailblazing website the NPG Music Club, and was commercially released on November 20, 2001 on NPG Records. It was the first album (outside of the works he distributed through his NPG Music Club) to be released under the name Prince since he had changed his name to an unpronounceable symbol in 1993, and it was his first fully independent release to be issued without any major label backing.

The Rainbow Children is a concept album intertwining Prince's recurring themes of spirituality and sexuality, love and social consciousness, set in a metaphoric utopian narrative. Musically, the album showcased a new jazzinfluenced direction for Prince, with live drums and expansive horn charts. The album's original cover artwork – the Cbabi Bayoc painting "The Reine Keis Quintet" – holds a place of honor at Prince's Paisley Park to this day, and is displayed in his NPG Music Club Room.
