Prince Charming is the third and final album by Adam and the Ants, released in 1981 (see 1981 in music). Unlike Kings of the Wild Frontier, Prince Charming showed the Ants moving away from their earlier Burundi drum style. This album features former Roxy Music bass player Gary Tibbs in place of Kevin Mooney, the bassist from Kings of the Wild Frontier. The album spawned the two Number-One singles “Stand and Deliver” and “Prince Charming”, then the Top-Ten single “Ant Rap”. The album was remastered and reissued in 2004 with several demo tracks.
The song “Prince Charming” has musical similarities to Rolf Harris' 1965 song “War Canoe”, and in March 2010 Harris claimed on BBC Radio 5live's Danny Baker Show that an out-of-court settlement had been reached and a large sum of royalties received after a musicologist had found the two songs to be musically identical.
