It’s been almost two years since music legend Prince passed away, but his legacy continues to live on. We’ve just learned that previously unreleased Prince music will be out in the near future — and we’re already partying like it’s 1999.
Last year, on the anniversary of the musician’s death, a new EP of Prince songs was scheduled to be hit major streaming services before the release was halted by Prince’s estate. This time around, it all seems pretty legit, so get ready for more Prince.
The music icon’s massive collection of unreleased music was notably moved from his famous Paisley Park compound to a climate-controlled facility in Los Angeles, after some material had been damaged. His siblings are now trying to move it back to the estate, following the recent fires in California.
To mark the second anniversary of his death, Prince: Live on the Big Screen, which will take place at the Target Center in his native Minneapolis, is also slated to feature “remastered and never-before-released” tracks.
We still don’t know when the unreleased songs will hit the airwaves — or if they’ll be packaged in the form of an EP or a full-blown album — but if “mind-blowing” means Purple Rain levels of iconic, then we’re already so HEAR for it.
