A previously unreleased Prince album from 2010, Welcome 2 America, has been announced, and is set for release on July 30 via Legacy. The album’s title track has been shared as well. Check it out below, along with the album’s tracklist and cover art.

A press release describes Welcome 2 America as “a powerful creative statement that documents Prince’s concerns, hopes, and visions for a shifting society, presciently foreshadowing an era of political division, disinformation, and a renewed fight for racial justice.”

The deluxe version of Welcome 2 America will come with a full-length live concert video from one of Prince’s string of 2011 shows at The Forum in Los Angeles during his “Welcome 2 America” tour. The tracklist for the concert can also be viewed below.

Last year, the Prince Estate put out an expanded reissue of Prince’s 1987 album Sign O’ The Times.
