Mike writes: "Prince is planning to release three new albums in 2009 without the assistance of a record label, according to an interview with the Los Angeles Times. A "major retailer", rumored to be Wal-Mart, is in talks with the artist to release the music physically, while a new Prince Web site will sell it in digital form. It's too early to tell if this is an isolated move or if other performers will opt to bypass the record labels."
