The legendary Prince was known for being one of the creative and talented musicians. Throughout his four-decades-long career, the “I Would Die 4 U” hitmaker also worked behind the scenes to raise talent and create songs for the rising artists he respected and wanted to help.

In June, The Prince Estate in partnership with Warner Bros. Records and TIDAL plans to release a new album titled Originals. It will consist of 15 tracks, 14 which will be previously unreleased. The tracks chosen for the tracklisting were collaboratively picked by Troy Carter, on behalf of The Prince Estate, and rapper Jay-Z, who owns TIDAL.

On June 7, the new album will be available to stream via TIDAL exclusively for 14 days.

“In the spirit of sharing Prince’s music with his fans as he wanted, the album will be available to stream in Master quality via TIDAL’s HiFi subscription tier. Members will be able to hear the recordings just as the artist intended the tracks to sound,” is captioned within the Instagram photo which reveals the album artwork.

On June 21, the album will be available to stream on all platforms. It will also be available to purchase digitally and physically on CD. The 180 gram 2LP and limited edition Deluxe CD+Purple 2LP formats will be available on July 19.
