  • Now that “Silver Tongue” is out, I am happy to share that I was given the opportunity to revisit the Musicology project and create the single art for these three releases. 

I am a digital pack rat, and I save everything. So I just happened to have all the outtakes from the original Musicology photo shoot with @armourphoto in my archives. I figured that would be the perfect single art to use since they had never been seen before outside of Paisley Park. I decided to keep it very simple, focusing on the photos. With a couple suggestions from the Estate, it all went very smoothly. 

I love getting to work on these Prince projects every once in awhile, and I’m grateful to Sony and the Estate for inviting me back.
