1985 Album Reissued On Vinyl LP! Includes Hit Single "Raspberry Beret!"

Features Sheila E Playing Drums On "Pop Life!"

The seventh studio album from Prince was the second to feature his backing band The Revolution. Sheila E is featured on drums for the single "Pop Life." Released in April 1985, the album found Prince experimenting somewhat with psychedelic styles and more opulent textures. The album produced four singles, "Paisley Park", "Raspberry Beret", "America", and "Pop Life".

"Purple Rain made Prince sound like he could do anything, but it still didn't prepare even his most fervent fans for the insular psychedelia of Around the World in a Day. Prince had made his interior world sound fascinating and utopian on Purple Rain, but Around the World in a Day is filled with cryptic religious imagery, bizarre mysticism, and confounding metaphors which were drenched in heavily processed guitars, shimmering keyboards, grandiose strings, and layers of vocals...'Raspberry Beret' is a brilliant piece of neo-psychedelia with an indelible chorus, 'Pop Life' is a snide swipe at stardom that emphasizes Prince's outsider status, 'Condition of the Heart' is a fine ballad, 'America' is a good funk jam, 'Paisley Park' is heavy and slightly frightening guitar psychedelia, while the title track is a sunny, kaleidoscopic pastiche of Magical Mystery Tour." - Stephen Thomas Erlewine,
