The artist formerly known as Prince plans to be the first pop star to launch a CD, available only on the Internet.
The pint-sized pop phenomenon wants to release Crystal Ball, a CD containing tracks only available from bootleggers until now, in a limited edition of 100,000. The artist said he has been cheated by illicit copies of his music and wants to sell a genuine version of the tracks to real fans.
His site at (www.love4oneanother.com) follows the artist's style. It uses numbers in place of letters and borrows lines and from his singles to market CDs and offer news. It said: "Dig if U will the picture ... the first release by a major artist solely on the Internet. All we need 2 do is manifest it."
Crystal Ball will be a four-CD set. "Call 4 pricing," the site adds.
