Prince says he’ll play with Judith Hill at Paisley Park tonight

Prince remains firmly committed to supporting the career of Judith Hill, a singer he discovered when she told a European magazine she wanted to work with him. Hill’s dream came true: earlier this year, an album produced by Prince and recorded at Paisley Park was released in an unusual cascade that started with a free giveaway via a Live Nation e-mail.

The album, Back in Time, is now available through more conventional channels (including iTunes), and it sounds like Prince will be joining Hill on stage tonight at Paisley Park. We’ll update this post as more information becomes available. In the meantime, read more about Judith Hill and her artistically fruitful relationship with Prince.
