Prince wrote a number of songs for other artists, and now for the first time, his renditions of some of those tracks will be released in a new compilation.
Originals will be released on CD and streaming platforms on June 21, while 180 gram 2LP and limited edition Deluxe CD+2LP formats will come out on July 19. Fans who won’t be able to wait until then, however, can listen to the album exclusively on TIDAL beginning on June 7. All formats are currently available for pre-order here.
Originals is made up of 15 tracks, with 14 of those tracks being previously unreleased recordings. The album was curated by Troy Carter and JAY-Z on behalf of The Prince Estate.
