“You ever get that feeling that you just have too many hits?”

The Prince estate is set to reissue three of Prince’s ’90s albums, via Sony Legacy this September.

The albums included in the latest Prince reissue campaign are The Versace Experience (PRELUDE 2 GOLD)Chaos and Disorder and Emancipation.

The Versace Experience was previously only available as a numbered cassette, given to attendees of the Versace show at Paris Fashion Week in 1995. The tape was initially intended as a preview of Prince’s Gold album, featuring remixes of ‘Eye Hate U’, ‘Gold’ and ‘P Control’. A reproduction of the cassette was released in another limited edition for Record Store Day 2019.

Both other albums will also receive their vinyl debuts, with Chaos and Disorder – Prince’s final album of new music with Warner – pressed on a single disc. Released just months later in 1996, Emancipation will be given a 6xLP reissue.

The titles are the latest in a string of Prince reissues, and follows the release of Originals, which features a host of previously unreleased demoes of versions of songs he gave to other artists, including The Bangles’ ‘Manic Monday’ and Sinead O’Connor’s ‘Nothing Compares 2U’.
