Sign o' the Times is the ninth studio album by American singer, songwriter, producer, and t Prince. It was first released as a double album on March 30, 1987, by Paisley Park Records and Warner Bros. The album is the follow-up to Parade (1986) and is Prince's first album following his disbanding of the Revolution

Sign o' the Times" is the lead single from American musician Prince's 1987 album of the same name. Despite being negative in nature, the song was originally intended for two separate Prince albums meant to be released in 1986, that were both shelved: Dream Factory and Crystal Ball. Many of the tracks from both of these albums ended up on the album Sign o' the Times.

Sign O the Times mess with your mind Hurry before it's too late Let's fall in love, get married, have a baby We'll call him Nate. if it's a boy. Time, time. About Sign O’ the Times. This hit became the key theme and title track of Prince’s 1987 album, following many unreleased and dismissed projects under different concepts. Here, he expresses his depressed view of the chaotic, frenzied present world – In a funky tune

Prince wanted Sign O' The Times to be a triple album called "The Crystal Ball," but in a rare rebuke, his record company refused, and instead it was pared down to a double album. This was one of the first significant conflicts between Prince and Warner Bros. Records; over the next few years Prince grew to resent the label, which was restricting his output. This led to his name change and public appearances with the word "slave" written on his face. The B-side was "La La La He He He," which appears only on the collection The Hits/The B-Sides

Sign o’ the Times is difficult to grapple with because there’s so much going on in each track. The up-tempo Play in the Sunshine drops in jazz fusion riffs and choral voices just when you think its winding down. The Cross starts as a mournful song of devotion to Christ with acoustic guitar and sitar before exploding into a huge rock anthem with military drums and fuzz guitar. Because Prince played and recorded the album using now-vintage late ’80s technology there are moments when certain sounds, particularly the drums, are clearly of their era. But these sonic distractions don’t last as the scope of the songs, the musicianship, and overall arrangements are just too glorious to nitpick. Sign o’ the Times is a double album made with a restlessness that never allows it to settle into complacency or formula. It’s a soundtrack to a highly charged and specific period, for both Prince and his listeners.

While the music overflows with generous spirit, these are among the most cryptic, insular songs he's ever written.

Sign o' the Times is the ninth studio album by American recording artist Prince, released on March 30, 1987, by Paisley Park Records and Warner Bros. The album is the follow-up to Parade and is Prince's first album following his disbanding of the Revolution. The songs were largely recorded during 1986 to 1987 in sessions for albums Prince ultimately aborted: Dream Factory, the pseudonymous Camille, and finally the triple album Crystal Ball. Prince eventually compromised with label executives and shortened the length of the release to a double album
