Prince’s name looks to be set in Extrabold Russell Square by John Russell, originally released by VGC in 1973. A-side title is set in all-caps Futura.

    A page of Russell Square in this site doesn’t show a detail, but Russell Square isn’t only a single weight font.

    It spans 5 weights and some of them have italics (extralight,light,regular). However, they don’t seem to have been digitized yet.

  2. That’s a very welcome addition, thanks!
    I’ll embed the image you’ve provided below.

  3. Thanks getsuren! Everything I could find on Russell Square reported it to be single weight. I faintly remember seeing it in bold years ago but couldn’t find a source.
