Vinyl has been making a comeback for years — why not cassettes?

Warner Music is reissuing Purple Rain, the iconic Prince album from the movie of the same name, on cassette August 12.  It’s also coming out again on vinyl, though a bit later – September 23.  You can pre-order both now:

Warner isn’t stopping there.  More of Prince’s catalogue is getting the vinyl and cassette reissue treatment, with five additional albums on the way before year’s end, bringing the total to seven.

Prince, of course, died April 21 at age 57.

Here are the other albums and their reissue dates:

Sign o’ the Times – Sept. 20

Batman OST and Lovesexy – Oct. 18


Graffiti Bridge – Nov. 22

Come – Dec. 13
