Yesterday, it was announced that an unreleased Prince album will be arriving on Tidal next year.
“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”, said Troy Carter, the entertainment adviser of Prince’s estate.
Tidal will exclusively stream the album for 14 days, before it is eventually followed by a physical release.
Tidal founder Jay-Z said, “Our only goal is to share Prince’s music with his fans as he wanted. 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 honour Prince’s enduring legacy and wishes with this new collection.”
