From Warner Brothers:

"This September 21st, the timeless Prince back catalogue welcomes a new, special addition - ‘Piano & A Microphone 1983’: 9 tracks and 35 minutes of Prince - solo with just a piano and a microphone.

The private rehearsal recording, captured at Prince’s home studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota, provides a rare, intimate glimpse into the iconic artist's creative process as he works through songs including “17 Days,” “Purple Rain,” “Strange Relationship” and “International Lover”. The performance is a truly unique insight into Prince’s timeless genius.

This limited, deluxe edition features a hardback 12” gatefold book with glued pocket on left-hand side holding inner sleeve and 180g LP, plus 12” booklet, with CD held on right-hand side. The booklet is to feature exclusive photos and new liner notes by Prince’s then engineer, Don Batts."
