Digital station Jazz FM has secured the first UK radio airplay of the new track by Prince.
Called In a Large Room with No Light, the song was played first last night on Gary King’s ‘Jazz Glide Home’ show at 6.30pm. Prince completed the track two days ago in the run up to the Montreaux Jazz Festival where he will be playing two new shows on the 18th July to close the festival.
Richard Wheatly, Chairman of Jazz FM says, “Jazz FM is honoured to be Prince’s station of choice to be the first to broadcast this upbeat summer sound for 2009 from one of the world’s greatest artists of all time. “
In a Large Room with No Light by Prince will be played out across the week on Jazz FM and will be Steve Quirk’s record of the week next week.
Prince first produced a very different version of In a Large Room with no Light in 1986 for an album called Dream Factory, which was never released.
