Prince’s 24th studio album, The Rainbow Children was released in 2001, and was the first LP – barring releases through his NPG Music Club website – to be released as ‘Prince’, after he changed his name to what became termed the ‘Love Symbol’.

Making its vinyl debut, One Nite Alone… was released six months after The Rainbow Children in 2002, and features Joni Mitchell-penned tunes ‘U’re Gonna C Me’ and ‘A Case Of U’.

Alongside the two albums, The Prince Estate is also reissuing One Nite Alone… Live!, which collects tracks from Prince’s post-The Rainbow Children tour, and One Nite Alone… The Aftershow: It Ain’t Over!, which features recordings from Prince’s aftershow performances.
