2009/10

Lotusflow3r.com was Prince‘s official website from 31 January 2009, open to subscribers from 24 March 2009 where Prince’s LotusFlow3r and MPLSound albums along with Bria Valente’s Elixer album was available for download both in MP3 and WAV formats. Each album occupied its own part of a 3D ‘galaxy’, but the song Cause And Effect followed as a standalone MP3 one month before the website’s closure. A globe containing video clips was also available. A physical version of the albums, sold as three-disk set, was available through an exclusivity arrangement with Target chain stores.

Lotusflow3r.com was open to members for exactly 365 days and with a one-time subscription fee of $77 under the sole purpose to distribute the three albums to fans. A handful of other songs were later available, however, despite hopes for the service to continue into a second year the website closed on 23 March 2010. This left Prince for the next three years, in part out of fatigue with running membership services and meeting expectations, but in the main because of his growing distrust with the internet and how the digitisation of music had in his view devalued music. He sensationally declared: “The internet is over”.
