Prince not planning on recording new material
The singer has said he feels he has the freedom to now do what he wants with his career without the pressure to release a new album.
Prince has revealed that he has finally achieved the freedom to run his career how he wants without the pressure from a record company to put out new albums.
The diminutive pop star revealed that he has reached a stage in his career where he feels he no longer needs to release albums to live, which gives him a greater freedom over his life.
He told the Chicago Tribune : “I don’t have to record to eat or to get out of debt or to pay my taxes. I looked forward to the day I could do this.
“Freedom is an interesting thing. You have to work really hard to get free.”
He added: “We’re in a singles market again. It’s crazy for me to walk into that with a new album.”
Having released six new albums across 2003 and 2004, the singer feels that he is taking a break from recording to concentrate on his live performances.
He has previously commented on his distaste for new media file formats used for music distribution as it limits the sound quality that came with CDs.
