I feel that we're on the brink of something. It is going to be strict and wild and pretty.” - Prince, 1986

Overflowing with musical ideas and topical lyrics that sound just as relevant today as they did when they were initially released, Prince's iconic double album Sign O' The Times captured the artist in a period of complete reinvention. The final 16-track album included just some of the countless songs Prince recorded in the prolific period of 1985-1987, which saw the dissolution of his band The Revolution, the construction of his innovative recording complex, Paisley Park, and the creation (and ultimate abandonment) of the albums Dream Factory, Camille, and Crystal Ball.


This September 25, The Prince Estate, in partnership with Warner Records/Rhino UK, will reissue Sign O' The Times. The Super Deluxe Edition will feature the classic album remastered for the very first time, 63 previously unreleased tracks, and a previously unreleased 2+ hour video concert performance from Prince's legendary vault that illuminates his wide-ranging and prolific creativity in this era. Following the successful release of the 1999 Super Deluxe Edition in the fall of 2019, the Sign O' The Times Super Deluxe Edition represents the deepest dive to date into Prince's vault and includes a total of 92 audio tracks across thirteen LPs.

Contents
• 92 audio tracks, of which 63 are previously unreleased, including 45 studio tracks from Prince's Vault.
• Opens with Prince's iconic album, Sign O' The Times, dazzlingly remastered for the very first time by Prince's original mastering engineer Bernie Grundman.
• Includes an entire previously unreleased audio recording of Prince's Sign O' The Times tour performance in Utrecht, Netherlands, on June 20, 1987.
• DVD features a complete previously unreleased recording of Prince's benefit performance at Paisley Park, December 31st, 1987. The show includes Prince's only on-stage collaboration with Miles Davis.
• Housed in a 12” box, and accompanied by a 12” 120-page hardback book featuring:
o Brand new liner notes by: Prince's creative peers and friends Dave Chappelle (in conversation with photographer Mathieu Bitton) and Lenny Kravitz; Prince's longtime engineer Susan Rogers; Daphne A. Brooks, William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of African American Studies, American Studies and Women's, Gender & Sexuality Studies at Yale University; Minneapolis radio host and author Andrea Swensson, host of the Official Prince Podcast; and Prince scholar Duane Tudahl.
