The Prince Estate, in partnership with Warner Records, released a brand new music video for Prince’s original demo recording of the classic “Manic Monday” featuring never before seen, archival footage from his storied vault that provides a rare window into Prince’s creative process during a wildly productive era of his career.
Prince will forever be remembered as a commanding live performer, chart-topping recording artist, and music business revolutionary. Yet for all the time he spent in the spotlight over his four-decade-long career, Prince also worked tirelessly behind the scenes to nurture talent and pen songs for the rising artists he respected. The combined effect was a complete saturation and transformation of the pop music landscape, with Prince both leading and subverting mainstream culture.
As one of the most prolific writer/producers of our time, Prince dominated the charts with songs he’d composed and recorded for others as well. Several of the iconic songs found on the new Originals album were considerable hits for the artists who recorded them. The enormous success of “Manic Monday” propelled the single and its accompanying album, The Bangles’ Different Light, to the #2 spot on the pop charts.
