Prince’s Purple Rain mixed in Dolby Atmos

Streaming from today

Prince’s classic Purple Rain album, from 1984, has been mixed in Dolby Atmos and is available to stream from today, on compatible streaming platforms.

The new Atmos mix of Purple Rain has been created from the original multi-track master tapes by Chris James (who did Diamonds and Pearls last year).

Here’s a quote from Paisley Park Enterprises: “As we begin what will be a year-long celebration of the 40th anniversary of Purple Rain, we are thrilled to present Prince’s masterpiece in ATMOS, providing an immersive, surround auditory experience of Prince’s legendary album. This highly crafted release will present Prince’s iconic work with more space and depth while preserving the beautiful songs that have shaped music and popular culture, and touched the lives of countless fans around the world”.

The good news is a Blu-ray Audio has been confirmed, “to be released later in 2024”. Obviously, we’ll make that available via the SDE shop so ensure you’re signed up to the SDE Newsletter mailing list (see below) or are an SDE Member to be one of the first to hear about this physical release!
