Lovesexy is Prince's tenth album. It was recorded quickly following the cancellation of The Black Album. It has an eclectic sound, with hip-hop, house and gospel influences alongside Prince's usual pop and funk styles.
The album is notable for being the first to be fully recorded at Paisley Park. A few of the songs feature the Sign O The Times/Lovesexy band. New sounds on the album include the Roland D-50 keyboard, which would become Prince's preferred keyboard into the 1990s, the Auerswald Model C electric guitar and the Dynacord ADD One drum machine.
Prince toured Lovesexy from May to June 1987 with the same, unnamed band that toured Sign O The Times. Prince also filmed the Livesexy concert movie with this band.
Lovesexy was recorded between October 1988 and January 1988 at Paisley Park studios.
The Lovesexy band appear on "Eye No" and "Dance On". Sheila E also appears on "Alphabet Street", "Anna Stesia", "I Wish U Heaven", "Positivity". For details of the equipment used by the band, please see the live section above.
