The streaming platform Tidal has won a case to house the late singer Prince’s previously unreleased music on it’s website. Prince’s estate and the streaming service sued each other in 2016 over the rights to stream the artists unreleased music.
The album will be available on Tidal as of 2019.
The entertainment advisor of Prince’s estate, Troy Carter said:
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.
The album will be exclusively available on Tidal for 14 days, before physical copies are released.
This will be the first Prince album released since December of 2015, when he released HITnRUN Phase Two, just 4 months before his death at the age of 57.
Jay-Z, one of the many owners of Tidal 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.
