A New Prince Album Consisting of Unreleased Demos is Coming Out This Summer

More Prince demos are coming.

The Prince Estate has announced that a new Prince album will be coming out, via Warner Bros. Records. The album will be called Originals, and it will feature 15 previously unreleased demos recorded by Prince.

The collection of songs on the album consists of tracks Prince gave to other artists. These are tracks recorded for artists like Vanity 6, Sheila E., Kenny Rogers, Apollonia 6, and more.

According to Variety, the songs on Originals were selected by Troy Carter, for The Prince Estate, and JAY-Z. The album will stream exclusively on TIDAL for two weeks starting June 7 (which is Prince’s birthday.) The TIDAL release makes sense since Prince had a warm relationship with the streaming service while he was alive.

TIDAL will have a two-week window of exclusivity.  Then Warner Bros. will release the album on CD on June 21st. There will be a vinyl edition the following month.
