Prince recording a Beatles tribute album?

Found at Idolator:
As rumors swirl about a possible Prince tour--and by the way, Prince rumors do not swirl as much as they vibrate subtly in the wind, eventually landing in a bed of fresh-cut lilacs and scented cocoa oil--the Las Vegas Review-Journal hints that he might also be taking on a new project involving the Beatles:

Prince's run at the [Las Vegas Rio Hotel & Casino] might be a brief one... Prince will end his Rio deal on March 31 [and] is going on tour to promote his latest CD. But a 3121 rep said the show is indefinite, and "there's not a confirmed end date as of yet."

Perhaps most revealing, however, was the group of uber entertainment executives who attended a private Prince performance about 2:30 a.m. Sunday, after his main show at his 3121 club. Among 30 guests in a small backroom were ABC entertainment honcho David Saltz; Apple Records boss Jonathan Clyde, who produced most of Usher's major hits, and Siegfried & Roy's longtime manager, Bernie Yuman.

Saltz is reportedly working on a huge Beatles-related Prince project. Prince spent most of the private concert singing arrangements of Beatles songs. Connect the dots.
