A whole bunch of Prince music has just been released by Sony Legacy Recordings and will be available on streaming platforms for the first time ever.
Music spanning from 1995 to 2010, as well as a new anthology of selected tracks have been made available as a result of a deal with the Prince Estate.
The deal between the Prince Estate and Sony also means that there are a whole other 12 albums set to be reissued later this year.
The material will cover releases between 1978 to 2015 and will be made available to streaming services across the globe.
Another deal between Prince’s independent record label NPG Records and Warner Brothers saw the release of a deluxe edition of Purple Rain last year. The label will also be releasing an acoustic, stripped down live album Piano & A Microphone ’83 next month.
A rare recording of Prince performing political piece Mary Don’t You Weep was also released in June and has featured in the final credits of Spike Lee’s new film BlaKkKlansman
Prince fans can also expect the release of his long-awaited memoir by the end of this year.
