electric Word Life
What if Purple Rain was a double album? Why did Prince hide a jazz side project? How did 1999 influence the creation of house music? How does it feel to get dissed in a Prince song? Electric Word Life collects five years of writing on the late pop star and his expansive catalog, including Batman, B-sides, 1999, and the disappearing digital singles of the 21st century.
Jack Riedy (Pitchfork, GQ, VIBE)combines original interviews and personal stories to illustrate Prince’s lasting impact and the unique relationship between listeners and the music they love. The risograph-printed book features original artwork by Mary Gring.
