We are really digging this whimsical and breezy track that has surfaced from Prince’s father, John L. Nelson. Released on Maken It Music, the label owned by Prince’s half sister Sharon Nelson, the song is a part of a forthcoming project entitled, “Don’t Play With Love, The John L. Nelson Project,” and is expected to be released Oct. 27. Sharon Nelson produced the album in January at Paisley Park from her father’s sheet music. Prince had no creative role in the new music.
John Nelson, a jazz pianist who performed with the Prince Rogers Trio, died in 2001 at age 85. He co-wrote some songs with Prince, including “Computer Blue” from “Purple Rain.”
