More than 300 pieces published by Prince between 1995 and 2010 have been available on the major streaming platforms since Friday, after the owners of the American legend of pop have given the green light for such a broadcast.
These songs are from 23 albums released between 1995 ("The Gold Experience") and 2010 ("20Ten") and a new compilation made for this occasion.
The owners of Prince, who were opposed to the broad online broadcast of his music during his lifetime, have reached agreement with the label Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music.
"Many of these albums, long awaited by fans and collectors, are available for the first time in streaming and download and add more than 300 pieces of Prince to his online catalog," Legacy said in a statement.
Since the sudden disappearance of singer in April 2016, heirs – their brothers and sisters – have agreed to the three major record companies, Sony, Universal and Warner, to commercialize the legacy of the "Minneapolis Kid".
For most of his career, Prince was vehemently opposed to the practices of the music industry. In the mid-nineties he had slammed the door of Warner before he showed himself with the word & slave & # 39; on the cheeck.
However, the specialized magazine Variety notes that one of the biggest hits Prince of this period, "The most beautiful girl in the world", released in 1994, is not one of the songs put online on Friday.
According to an anonymous source, the play forms the core of a legal dispute.
