Great news for all Prince fans: TIDAL and Prince’s estate will be releasing an unreleased album by the musical genius in 2019. After a few legal matters, both parties finally came to an agreement to continue their partnership, which began in 2015. TIDAL will debut the new album, stream it exclusively for 14 days and then it’ll be available for download seven days after it’s released.
Troy Carter, the estate’s entertainment advisor, stated, “I’m very pleased this is resolved, and we get to honor the relationship between Prince and Tidal with this album. We look forward to fans hearing the new music and experiencing the genius of Prince.”
“Our only goal is to share Prince’s music with his fans as he wanted,” says Jay-Z. “After thoughtful and honest conversation with him, he chose TIDAL as his partner for HITnRUN Phase One and HITnRUN Phase Two, and we will continue to respect and honor Prince’s enduring legacy and wishes with this new collection.”
Glad that was all worked out! We’re sure fans can’t wait to hear this new album. In the meantime, enjoy “When Doves Cry” below.
