SiriusXM is curing our isolation melancholy with some brand new audio experiences throughout the month of May. The radio station has collaborated with a bunch of big names to create run-stations, featuring exclusive material from each artist.
Prince is one artist who will have his own channel featuring previously unheard content and a party of specials. The broadcasts will be available to stream for free until May 31.
SiriusXM are set to release exclusive Prince material on ‘The Prince Channel’ throughout the month of May on the SiriusXM app.
The Prince Channel will contain a 2-hour radio special recorded before the release of his 2006 LP 3121. The demo will be shared for the first time and will include “songs from his unparalleled catalogue, personal-favourite selections by other artists, mixes, interviews, and a peek into his legendary vault of unreleased studio and live recordings.”
The channel will also include a takeover by Sheila E, pro collaborator and friend of Prince. Sheila E and FKA Twig‘s performance at Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute To Prince will also air.

Starting this Friday, @siriusxm will host a new channel dedicated entirely to Prince. Stream for free until 5/31 and catch takeovers and special playlists from Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Sheila E., and the debut of a never-before-heard radio show Prince created with @DJRASHIDA in 2005. “I don’t think anybody knows that it exists other than the people who directly worked on it or were there while we were working on it,” Rashida said, describing the lost 3121 Radio show. “It’s such a trip listening back to it just now.” Links in bio to stream. @sheilaedrummer @flytetymejam
