Welcome 2 America features some of Prince’s only studio collaborations with bassist Tal Wilkenfeld, drummer Chris Coleman, and GRAMMY-nominated engineer Jason Agel.
The album also includes New Power Generation singers Shelby J., Liv Warfield, and Elisa Fiorillo and keyboardist Morris Hayes, who Prince also recruited to co-produce several tracks on the album.
Prince took the new material on tour, culminating in the legendary April 2011 21 Nite Stand at The Forum in Los Angeles – a run of 21 concerts, many of which lasted three hours.
The opening night show included a sensational 15-minute version of Purple Rain.
