15 Prince Albums Get Tidal Release

Jay Z’s music streaming service already offered dozens of the Purple One’s projects

Prince may be gone, but fans looking to explore the full extent of his extensive songwriting career need look no further than Tidal.

Jay Z’s music streaming service has added 15 more Prince albums to subscribers on top of the three dozen or so albums by the Purple One that were already available. Tidal is currently the only major streaming service with access to so much of Prince’s work.

The newly-available albums include: 1987’s “The Black Album;” 1994’s “1-800-NEW-FUNK;” 1999’s “1999: The New Master;” and 2008’s “Indigo Nights.” There are also two albums by Prince’s backing band, The New Power Generation, which he produced.

On Monday, Minnesota governor Mark Dayton and Lt. Governor Tina Smith proclaimed June 7 Prince Day in Minnesota, in honor of the deceased musician. Today would have marked his 58th birthday.

Last Thursday, an autopsy report concluded that Prince died of an accidental overdose of the painkiller fentanyl, which is said to be more than 50 times more potent than morphine.

Prince was found unresponsive in the elevator at his Paisley Park estate on the morning of April 21. Responders were unable to revive him.

The week before his death, Prince’s plane reportedly made an emergency landing at Quad City International Airport in Moline, Illinois, as the singer was en route home from a concert in Atlanta. Prince, who was rushed to a nearby hospital, was reportedly treated for an overdose of the opioid painkiller Percocet and released after three hours, according to TMZ.
