New Prince album to be released in autumn

Associated Press

Warner Bros. Records has announced a new Prince album on what would have been the musician's 60th birthday.

The company said Thursday that “Piano & A Microphone 1983” from Prince's storied vault will be released Sept. 21 on CD, vinyl and digital formats.

Warner Bros. says the album features Prince working through nine tracks in a private rehearsal recording at his now-demolished home studio in the Minneapolis suburb of Chanhassen.

Among the songs are “17 Days,” Joni Mitchell's “A Case of You,” ''Strange Relationship,” ''International Lover” and “Purple Rain,” the title song of Prince's 1984 hit movie.

Also included is Prince performing the spiritual “Mary Don't You Weep.”

'Blonde' back

Reese Witherspoon confirms there will be a “Legally Blonde 3.”

The actress on Thursday posted a video on Instagram of her floating in a pool wearing a pink bikini. The caption read: “It's true...# LegallyBlonde3.”

Witherspoon starred as Elle Woods in the 2001 comedy, in which the fashion merchandising student enrolls in Harvard Law School to try to win back her ex-boyfriend.

The movie led to the 2003 sequel “Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde.”

Country singer Walker Hayes says that his newborn daughter has died.

Hayes said in a statement that “Oakleigh Klover Hayes was born this morning at the hospital and now is safely in heaven.” He asked for privacy as he and his wife, Laney, grieved. Oakleigh was born on Wednesday.
