Has anyone heard anything about this? I love The Time and was surprised to hear they had a new CD coming out tomorrow (10/18). Apparently they can't call themselves The Time anymore because Prince owns the rights to the name and won't let them use it, which is ironic on several levels.
The Time 'Condensate' to Original 7ven on October Album
It's time -- and perhaps over-time -- for some new music from The Time. It's coming in October, but the group will no longer be using that name.
"Condensate," which drops Oct. 18 on Time Life's SRR Records imprint and is the band's first new release since "Pandemonium" in 1990, marks the debut of the Original 7ven, the new moniker for the funky septet adopted after Prince -- who established The Time in 1981 -- denied rights to the original group name. Rather than making a fight out of it, however, the group members decided to view it as an opportunity for a fresh start.
Much more to the article at the link. Apparently Best Buy has an exclusive version with a DVD for $9.99.
