After being pulled from almost every streaming platform back in 2015 (bar TIDAL, that is), Prince’s entire discography is now back on the web for all to cherish.
Now no longer a TIDAL exclusive (Prince’s estate sued Roc Nation for counter-exclusivity following his shock death last year), the appearance of the artist’s music aligns timely with tonight’s Grammy Awards, where a tribute to the Purple One will be played out courtesy of Bruno Mars.
Alongside his existing music, two unreleased records will also be making their way later this year, including two concert films too. In a press release, Warner Bros’ CEO Cameron Strang said:
“Prince recorded his most influential and popular music during his time with Warner Bros. and we are deeply aware of our responsibility to safeguard and nurture his incredible legacy. Warner Bros. is thrilled to be able to bring Prince’s music to his millions of fans around the world via streaming services, fittingly on music’s biggest night. We’d like to thank Prince’s estate, Universal Music Publishing, the Grammy Awards and all of the streaming services for their great collaboration in making this landmark event possible
We’re also pleased to announce our plan to release the remaster of Prince’s most iconic album, Purple Rain, along with two incredible albums of previously unreleased Prince music and two complete concert films from the Paisley Park vault on June 9.
When we make any of Prince’s music available to fans – from the hits to unreleased gems – we are committed to upholding Prince’s high creative standards and we know fans will be thrilled when they hear these albums and see these films.”
