  • TIDAL將獨家首發已故歌手Prince之前未發行的作品



    ◎這項發行計劃標誌著之前因為《HITnRUN Phase One》和《HITnRUN Phase Two》兩張專輯在TIDAL上的獨家首發,導致Prince有段時間與TIDAL有些摩擦的合作關係重回到高峰,這第三張專輯的發行解決了雙方之間正在進行中的法律訴訟。

    ◎這張新專輯將使用1996年以後錄製的作品,因此不會涉及任何Prince之前與華納唱片公司達成協議的音樂。Prince的遺產管理人和Jay-Z現在正一起在為新專輯進行歌曲選擇的工作。代表Prince遺產管理發言的Troy Carter回應「我很高興這個問題解決了,我們將用這張專輯來頌揚Prince和TIDAL之間的關係,我們期待粉絲們聽到新的作品並體驗到Prince的才華」。不過有趣的是,Troy Carter同時也是TIDAL競爭對手Spotify的高階主管。


    The Prince Estate and TIDAL have announced plans to debut new Prince music exclusively on the streaming service. The new album will contain previously unreleased material from Prince's extensive vault of recordings.

    The new Prince album – expected to be released in 2019 – will stream exclusively on TIDAL for fourteen days and be available for download seven days after its debut. A global physical release will follow the TIDAL exclusive.

    This release marks a the culmination of Prince's sometimes rocky partnership with TIDAL, which resulted in the exclusive debut of HITnRUN Phase One and HITnRUN Phase Two on the streamer. Delivery of this third album resolves the ongoing legal dispute between the parties.

    This new album will draw from material recorded after 1996, since it cannot involve any of Prince's music subject to prior agreements with Warner Brothers Records. The Prince Estate and Jay-Z are now working together on the song selection for the album.

    "Our only goal is to share Prince's music with his fans as he wanted. After 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," Jay-Z said.

    Troy Carter, speaking on behalf of The Prince Estate, echoed those sentiments, noting "I'm very pleased this is resolved, and we get to honor the relationship between Prince and TIDAL with this album. We look forward to fans hearing the new music and experiencing the genius of Prince."

    Ironocally, Carter is also an executive at rival streamer Spotify.
