In collaboration with Warner Records, The Prince Estate will reissue the late icon’s seminal double album Sign O’ The Times on September 25.
Newly remastered, the 1987 album will be widely available on vinyl and CD. It will also be available on digital and streaming platforms.
The upgraded edition of the urgent album will contain its original material, including the title track and singles such as “U Got the Look” and “If I Was Your Girlfriend.”
Beyond the original material, 60 previously unreleased audio tracks and two complete concert recordings, including Prince’s only on-stage collaboration with Miles Davis, will be packaged as a Super Deluxe Edition. A DVD will contain the latter rare performance, along with a shelved New Year’s Eve benefit concert at Paisley Park from December 31, 1987.
In addition to the overflow of recordings, a 120-page hardcover book containing Prince’s previously unseen handwritten lyrics for many of the songs from the era will accompany the Super Deluxe Edition.
Fans will get their hands on unseen images taken by the Purple One’s go-to photographer. They’ll also be able to read liner notes by Dave Chappelle, Lenny Kravitz, Susan Rogers, and more.
Since the death of Prince four years ago, Prince’s impeccable catalog has been up for grabs in different forms. Other re-issues include The Rainbow Children, One Nite Alone, and Originals,

This September 25, The Prince Estate, in partnership with @warnerrecords, will reissue Prince’s epochal double album Sign O’ The Times via all physical, digital and streaming partners. 🟣 In addition to the newly remastered album, the Super Deluxe Edition features over 60 previously unreleased audio tracks and two complete concert recordings, including Prince’s only on-stage collaboration with Miles Davis. 🟣 Overflowing with musical ideas and topical lyrics that sound just as relevant today as they did when they were initially released, Prince’s iconic double album Sign O’ The Times captured the artist in a period of complete reinvention. The prolific period of late 1985 to early 1987 saw the dissolution of his band The Revolution, the construction of his innovative recording complex, @officialpaisleypark, and the creation (and ultimate abandonment) of the albums Dream Factory, Camille, and Crystal Ball. 🟣 The Super Deluxe #PrinceSOTT features a 120-page hardcover book containing handwritten lyrics for many of the songs from the era, unseen images by Jeff Katz, and liner notes by @davechappelle (in conversation w/ @candyTman), @LennyKravitz, Susan Rogers, Daphne A. Brooks, @slingshotannie & Duane Tudahl. 🟣 Pre-order the remastered, Deluxe and Super Deluxe reissues of #PrinceSOTT now via the official Prince Store (link in bio).
