35 years ago this week, Prince released his brilliant double album Sign O' The Times, which he recorded during a prolific period of complete artistic reinvention. Sign O' The Times 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 Paisley Park, and the projects Dream Factory, Camille, and Crystal Ball.
The expanded reissue of Sign O' The Times, released in the fall of 2020, includes 63 previously unreleased tracks from Prince's legendary vault and a full concert video. It was nominated for Best Historical Album at this year's #GRAMMYs, which was presented on Sunday, April 3.
"This is part of ‘The Nightmare Series’: A chance email from a Chinese “copy village” gave inspiration to this series. The village offered, via email, a list of artists it could reproduce, including three Andy Warhol paintings. The idea of Warhol’s entire artistic output distilled right down to three small 64x64 pixel thumbnails of Jackie Kennedy, Liz Taylor and an Electric Chair became the inspiration for these doomed and dripping celebrity portraits.
