Beck has released a new EP called Paisley Park Sessions, recorded at Prince’s legendary Minnesota recording complex. Included alongside renditions of Beck’s own “Where It’s At” and “Up All Night” is a medley of Prince covers featuring “Raspberry Beret”, “When Doves Cry”, “Kiss”, and “1999”.
An Amazon Original exclusive, Paisley Park Sessions marks the first time a “major music artist” has recorded in Paisley Park’s Studio A since Prince died in 2016, according to a press release. In a behind-the-scenes video of the sessions, Beck says, “I’ve heard the name since I was a child, ‘Paisley Park,’ and you sort of imagine this place. It’s special to be here and see it in person… Every studio has its own life to it, kind of special energy. It felt very creative.”
Paisley Park Sessions is available now on all tiers of Amazon Music, and you can stream it below along with the BTS clip. Performance clips from the recording are set to debut on November 18th.
