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 (1986) 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.

Sign O' The Times" lyrics. Oh yeah In France a skinny man Died of a big disease with a little name By chance his girlfriend came across a needle And soon she did the same At home there are seventeen-year-old boys And their idea of fun Is being in a gang called The Disciples High on crack, totin' a machine gun. Time, time

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

It was released worldwide in March 1987. Eight of the album's seventeen tracks were included on various configurations of the Dream Factory album, planned as the fourth album by Prince and the Revolution. When the Revolution was disbanded in October 1986, Prince reworked the album

Listen free to Prince – Sign O' The Times (Sign 'O' The Times, Play in the Sunshine and more). Sign ☮ the Times (or Sign O' The Times) is an album by Prince, released on March 31, 1987, on the Paisley Park records label. It's the follow up to Parade, and Prince's first "solo" album since splitting with The Revolution; the symbol between the quotes is a peace sign. The double album was a synthesis of three projects from 1986, including some work with The Revolution

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.

One theory for Prince’s invincibility in the ‘80s and relative fallibility in subsequent decades is that after becoming a star, he needed the Revolution to keep him in check. That notion is complicated by his masterpiece Sign O’ the Times, his first album after dismantling that backing band in October 1986. Released 30 years ago today (March 31, 1987), Sign O’ the Times was born from Crystal Ball, a proposed triple album that Warner Bros. refused to put out. That aborted set was itself composed of songs from two other scrapped projects
