TIDAL Lands Exclusive On Unreleased Prince Music

JAY-Z Is Producing a Posthumous Prince Album

Music mogul Jay-Z is working on a curating full-length album of previously released music from Prince's vault, and will release it on Tidal, Pitchfork.com is reporting. The music will stream exclusively on tidal for fourteen days and will be available for download seven days after its debut.

Jay Z, the owner of Tidal, and the Prince estate are now selecting music for the album. Jay-Z said in a statement that the goal is to share Prince's music with fans as he wanted.

This release marks a the culmination of Prince's sometimes rocky partnership with TIDAL, which resulted in the exclusive debut of HITnRUN Phase One and HITnRUN Phase Two on the streamer. The record, which has yet to be announced, will be exclusive to the service for a period of two weeks before a wider release.

Months later, Prince's record company sued Jay-Z's company, Roc Nation, over alleged copyright violations. In addition, they clarified that the compilation album will feature tracks that will not be included in a previous deal with Warner Brothers Records.

After his death, Prince's estate has discovered a ton of unreleased and previously unheard of music from the Purple One.

The 4:44 hitmaker, real name Shawn Carter, started up Tidal in 2015 in an attempt to create a more artist-friendly alternative to popular streaming services such as Spotify and Apple Music.

At that time, Prince records through Warner Bros had scanned 14.3 million in the USA alone. Court filings several months after Prince's death suggested it was worth around $200 million before taxes, but the actual valuation could have gone up or down since then. The new project will be released on Warner Bros, and will consist of songs written after Prince's initial deal with the label was terminated in 1996.
