Prince is airing his new album ‘Hit N Run’ online, with the LP streaming exclusively via Jay Z’s music platform Tidal.
The record is the musician’s 35th studio record, following on from the two albums he released in 2014 (‘Plectrumelectrum’ with 3rdEyeGirl and the solo LP ‘Art Official Age’).
Prince recently explained the decision to work with Tidal by talking about the way the streaming service works: “After one meeting, it was obvious that Jay Z and the team he has assembled at Tidal recognise and applaud the effort that real musicians put in to their craft to achieve the very best they can at this pivotal time in the music industry,” the iconic singer explained.
“Tidal have honoured us with a non-restrictive arrangement that once again allows us to continue making art in the fashion we’ve grown accustomed to, and we’re extremely grateful for their generous support.”
Prince has long had a tense relationship with online music, recently removing his music from all other streaming services.
You can listen to ‘Hit N Run’ now via Tidal. The tracklisting is as follows:
‘Million $ Show’
‘Shut This Down’
‘Ain’t About 2 Stop’
‘Like A Mack’
