The Future: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast

On Episode 125 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, new podcast guest Joe Andrews joins me to talk about the opening song from the Batman album, “The Future.” Prince’s dystopian vision, sung from the perspective of the Dark Knight himself, sets the tone for the project with its stark electronic drum beat and foreboding synths. “I’ve seen the future, and it will be.”

Music | Joseph Andrews (

The goal of each episode of Press Rewind is to:
