Jay-Z And Tidal Are Releasing A New Prince Album
A new posthumous Prince album is coming out, thanks to the Prince estate and Tidal reaching a settlement in their legal dispute.
Jay-Z is now working with the Prince Estate to select “previously unreleased music sourced from Prince’s vast archive of Vault recordings” for the upcoming release, which is expected to drop in 2019.
“Our only goal is to share Prince’s music with his fans as he wanted,” Jay-Z said in a statement. “After [a] 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.”
“I’m very pleased this is resolved and we get to honor the relationship between Prince and Tidal with this album,” Troy Carter from the Prince Estate said, referring to the legal woes. “We look forward to fans hearing the new music and experiencing the genius of Prince.”
