The artist forever known as Prince kept a busy schedule throughout his career. He wrote so much music he had to break from his record company to put it all out, and even after that there is a mystical musical treasure chest yet to be unearthed in his vaults. Prince’s Last Year, a new documentary coming to the UK’s Channel 4, shows he kept up that pace right until he died. His public performances were only a minor part of Prince’s last year, he also performed secret shows, like one at the White House in 2015 no one saw but the president. Thanks Obama.
Prince’s Last Year is produced and directed by Adrian Sibley. The one hour documentary compiles new interviews with such figures as George Clinton, Reverend Al Sharpton, and Cee-Lo Green, along with footage from the renowned guitarist’s final Piano & a Microphone tour. The documentary will feature his friend, the political commentator Van Jones Van Jones, his former girlfriend Andy Allo, and the singer Eryn Allen Kane discussing the days leading up to his death. The documentary will not shy away from Prince’s painkiller use.
Prince’s Last Year was produced by Lincoln Square Productions and executive produced by Dan Goldsack. Sheldon Lazarus is creative director for Lincoln Square Productions.
