Symbol also known as The Love Symbol Album is Prince’s thirteenth album. Although it was the last co-credited to the New Power Generation, Prince would continue referring to his band by that name. It features a wide variety of styles including hip-hop, R&B, reggae, jazz and a “rock opera”.
It notably features Prince’s horn section the Hornheadz for the first time. The New Power Generation appear on about half the songs and there remains a focus on live playing and instrumentation.
Prince and the New Power Generation toured from March to September 1993 on the Act I & II tours.
The Love Symbol Album was recorded at Paisley Park.
