The album was curated by JAY-Z and Prince Estate advisor Troy Carter. Prince Originals features demo versions of Sinéad O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares 2 U,” The Bangles’ “Manic Monday,” and Sheila E.’s “The Glamorous Life.”
As of now, the album is only available on TIDAL. But, the streaming platform is now offering a 90-day free trial. In a press release, JAY-Z said:
Prince led the way, for artistic freedom, for ownership. He’s one of the bravest people I can think of in the industry. He trusted us, not just me, but TIDAL, to continue his fight. Trying to help further that legacy through his music is an honor we couldn’t pass up as an organization dedicated to empowering artists. This gives his true fans that peek behind the curtain.
The album will hit other platforms on June 21. The vinyl version expected to drop in July.
