First re-release of the seventh full-length studio album by legendary American Pop/Funk/Psychedelic Rock singer Prince, and a second to feature his backing band The Revolution.
Departing somewhat from the commercial sound of his previous release, the massively successful "Purple Rain" (1984), the album instead saw Prince experimenting with Psychedelic styles and more opulent textures. In compliance with Prince's wishes, the record company released the album with minimal publicity, withholding accompanying singles until almost a month after the album's release.
"Around The World In A Day" was released to notably mixed reception after the success of "Purple Rain", though it nonetheless sold relatively well, eventually going double Platinum and becoming Prince And The Revolution's second number-one album on the Billboard 200. Two of its four singles reached the top 10.
Released in gatefold cover with a perforated flap.
NGP Records, Inc./Warner Bros. Records Inc., A Warner Music Group Company, 1985/2016 (7599-25286-1). Made in Netherlands.
