NEW YORK (AP) — Prince is releasing a new album on Sept. 30.

The pop icon announced Monday that he would release “Art Official Age” on Warner Bros. Records, the label Prince was signed to from 1978 to the mid-1990s, but later battled for the rights to his music.

He reached a deal with Warner in April, earning the rights to the music he recorded on the label.

Prince will also release the album “PlectrumElectrum” with his all-female band 3RDEYEGIRL on Sept. 30. Both albums are available for pre-order.

“Art Official Age” was described in a news release as a mix “of soul, R&B and funk.” It’s his first album since 2010’s “20Ten.”

Prince released key projects like “Purple Rain” and “1999” on Warner.
