The famed performer will be debuting ART OFFICIAL AGE, a solo album of Prince's classic funk sound. His second project, PLECTRUMELECTRUM, will be under the 3RDEYEGIRL band with Prince.

3RDEYEGIRL is a three-part female band, made up of drummer Hannah Ford, guitar player Donna Grantis, and Ida Nielsen on the bass. The "Batdance" performer has worked with 3RDEYEGIRL, and also used the band's name as a pseudonym.

"Prince is one of just a handful of visionary artists who have truly reshaped and redefined modern music and culture," Warner Bros. Records Chairman & CEO Cameron Strang said in a release. "For the past 35 years, he has never stopped evolving, challenging himself, reinventing his sound, and pushing boundaries. In true Prince fashion, he has just given us not one, but two extraordinary albums that express the incredible range and depth of his talent."
