Around The World In A Day is a the seventh studio album by American musician Prince, originally released in April 1985 via Paisley Park Records and Warner Bros. Records.

‘Purple Rain’ made Prince sound like he could do anything, but it still didn't prepare even his most fervent fans for the insular psychedelia of Around The World In A Day. Prince had made his interior world sound fascinating and utopian on ‘Purple Rain’, but Around The World In A Day is filled with cryptic religious imagery, bizarre mysticism, and confounding metaphors which were drenched in heavily processed guitars, shimmering keyboards, grandiose strings, and layers of vocals.

As an album, the record is a bit impenetrable, requiring great demands of the listener, but individual songs do shine through: "Raspberry Beret" is a brilliant piece of neo-psychedelia with an indelible chorus, "Pop Life" is a snide swipe at stardom that emphasizes Prince's outsider status, "Condition Of The Heart" is a fine ballad, "America" a good funk jam, "Paisley Park" heavy and slightly frightening guitar psychedelia, while the title track is a sunny, kaleidoscopic pastiche of Magical Mystery Tour.

Prince once said that he made the album to get rid of the millions of people who bought ‘Purple Rain’ who weren’t really fans. Regardless, Around The World In A Day while a bit of an oddity in the Prince catalog cannon, it continues to have a cultish fan base, much like being a fan of Prince himself.

Check out the tracks: Raspberry Beret” and “Paisley Park”.

This LP record is reissued on black vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with perforated flap, pressed in Europe.
