The Beautiful Experience

NPG Records

On record, slave.

The Beautiful Experience EP was Prince‘s second release under the name of The Artist Formally Known As Prince (The Artist Formally Known As PrincePrince love symbol). The Beautiful Experience comprised of alternate versions and mixes to the single The Most Beautiful Girl In The World (his first release both for NPG Records and as The Artist Formally Known As Prince) in celebration of the song becoming Prince’s first and only single to chart at one in the UK.

The releases had come at a point in Prince’s career when his relationship with Warner Brothers had hit its lowest ebb. Prince had formed NPG Records to distribute the original single The Most Beautiful Girl In The World since Warner refused to do so themselves. Because that single reached number 1 in the UK – a milestone not even reached during his entire tenure with Warner Brothers, it, and the resulting The Beautiful Experience EP, which had also sold surprisingly well, provided Prince the impetus to continue his post-Warner career as an independent artist. The album for which The Most Beautiful Girl In The World was written was eventually released in September 1995 as The Gold Experience. The Beautiful Experience is singular in that whilst it is itself a maxi-single it too boasts sub-singles.
