"Come. Get Wild. Peace."
—PRN, 1995 Brit Awards
With the album cover art depicting Prince in front of a cemetery gate, and the years 1958-1993 scrawled
under his birth name, it was clear that 1994 would mean the beginning of a new era for a newly reborn
artist. Come would be the final album to be released under the name “Prince” until 2001’s The Rainbow
Children, and it serves as the first chapter in a new era of his artistry—an era when he would simply be
known by his unpronounceable symbol, and would establish himself as a commercially independent,
revolutionary force in the music industry.
