When he passed away in April 2016, Prince was only fifty-seven and presumably, had much more music and work left in him.

It’s now been announced that a popular UK television channel, UK’s Channel 4, will air a documentary in 2018 that chronicles Prince’s Piano & A Microphone tour, the only solo tour he ever played.

The documentary will also cover Prince’s secret gig at the White House in 2015, when he and Stevie Wonder performed for President Obama and his family. It then follows him on his solo tour, described in a Channel 4 announcement as, “the sound of Prince stripped bare; the simplicity of these performances showed Prince in reflective mode, all the more poignant in hindsight, as these would be his final shows.”

The documentary will feature interviews with George Clinton, Reverend Al Sharpton, Cee-Lo Green as well as insights from his friend Van Jones, the singer Eryn Allen Kane and his former girlfriend Andy Allo. Princes Last Year will also “follow the musical and political passions of Prince’s life” and present a “is a compelling insight into this complex and contradictory character.” It will also examine his “long-standing addiction to painkillers” and how they played a role in his demise.

Directed by Adrian Sibley, there’s no official release date announced for Princes Last Year as yet.
