The unmistakeable talent that is Prince is set to release his new album '20TEN' this July and as before it will be on his own label + (we think) given away free on the cover of a glossy as he did previously in 2007 when ‘Planet Earth’ was released as a free cover-mount CD with the Mail on Sunday newspaper (remember?)

The first phase of the release (their words) will take place in July 2010 when The Mirror and Daily Record in Britain, Rolling Stone Magazine in Germany, Courrier International in France and Belgium’s Het Nieuwblad newspaper will cover-mount ‘20TEN’, Prince’s twenty seventh studio album.

Prince wrote, produced and recorded the album, which is described as having "strong funk and new wave elements". Recorded at Paisley Park, '20TEN' features guest appearances by saxophonist Maceo Parker and singers Shelby J, Liv Warfield and Elisa Dease.

'20TEN' TRACK LISTING:
1. Compassion
2. Beginning Endlessly
3. Future Love Song
4. Sticky Like Glue
5. Act Of God
6. Lavaux
7. Walk In Sand
8. Sea Of Everything
9. Everybody Loves Me

There are no London shows announced yet (maybe he's had enough of the o2 - or the other way around!?).... But we have been told in true Prince fashion no two shows are the same as Prince will be joined on stage by Morris Hayes and Cassandra O'Neal (keyboards), Cora Coleman (drums), Josh Dunham (bass), Elisa Dease, Shelby Johnson & Olivia Warfield (vocals) and Fredrick Yonnet (harmonica).
