The Weltons were part of Prince’s inner circle recently, but haven’t said anything so far about his untimely death. Hannah is pregnant with the couple’s first child, a girl due in September.
Prince never let anyone produce his albums in the past. But Joshua Welton became his de facto producer for the HitnRun, Phase 1 album. Welton got co-songwriting credit on most of the songs, too. He also co-produced Art Official Age and worked on 3rd Eye Girl’s PlectrumElectrum album.
(Yes, Prince was wildly productive in the last two years, issuing 4 albums.)
What a break for such a young guy!
Welton may know more about what was ailing Prince but so far he’s remained silent.
