Prince's Rave albums from 1999 and 2001 are next up for the reissue treatment

Two more Prince albums are to be reissued this April by Sony Legacy Recordings.

Next up for the re-release treatment are Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic from 1999 and Rave In2 The Joy Fantastic from 2001. Both will be pressed on purple vinyl as well as in a standard black vinyl edition.

Their reissue comes to coincide with a four-day tribute event to the late musician set to take place at his Paisley Park estate. Running from April 25-28, the event promises screenings, performances and panel discussions. You can find more information on that event here and pre-order the reissues here.

The reissue of the albums follows on from Prince's estate sharing a number of rare and unseen music videos from the period between 1995 and 2010 late last year.
