Prince has announced he is releasing two new albums on the same day - Art Official Age and Plectrumelectrum.

Both records are released via Warner Bros. Records (his original label home) on 29 September. The first one is a solo record and the second is by Prince's new band 3rdeyegirl.

The two albums will be sold separately and are available to pre-order now, with early buyers able to unlock 'instant grat' tracks.

He's also hinted at 'a series of very special events' globally to mark the releases. He already caused a frenzy in London earlier this year with a series of surprise shows.

Art Official Age is described as a 'classic Prince album', produced, arranged, composed and performed by Prince and Joshua Welton, whereas Plectrumelectrum is described as 'a classic band record' and was recorded live and in analogue.

3RDEYEGIRL is made up of Prince, Donna Grantis (guitar), Hannah Ford Welton (drums) and Ida Nielsen (bass).
