Last week, just prior to the second anniversary of his death, we heard Prince's original studio cut of "Nothing Compares 2 U", along with previously-unseen rehearsal footage from 1984, all for the first time.
Now, on the heels of all that, Prince's estate has announced that it will release an album of previously-unreleased material on September 28.
It was a strong first salvo of “mind blowing” material to come from the new caretakers of the artist’s estate, led by entertainment adviser Troy Carter and his company Atom Factory (Carter is also global head of creator services for Spotify). Prince was fiercely protective of his music and kept a large percentage of it — even some of his most popular videos and songs for which he didn’t feel he was properly compensated — locked away in his much-vaunted “Vault.” In the year since Carter took charge, the musical archives have been transported to a climate-controlled Iron Mountain facility in Los Angeles, where they’re being archived, restored and in some cases prepared for release.
