The Prince Estate releases ‘Welcome 2 America’
July 30, 2021
The Prince Estate and Legacy Recordings have released the enigmatic 2010 Prince album ‘Welcome 2 America’ —a powerful creative statement that documents Prince’s concerns, hopes, and visions for a shifting society, presciently foreshadowing an era of political division, disinformation, and a renewed fight for racial justice. The album, which has received widespread critical acclaim, is available now.

The Prince Estate also launched a new season of its Webby-awarded official podcast. “The Story of Welcome 2 America” takes listeners on a journey into the studios of Paisley Park and out onto the road with Prince in 2010-2011, when he recorded his political and poignant album ‘Welcome 2 America’ and then archived it, choosing to focus instead on creating unparalleled live concert residencies in cities around the U.S.
