Princes estate have dropped a posthumous album full of unreleased demos and fans are rejoicing that they get to hear one more record from the icon.

The 15-track album, which has been titled Originals, is made up of songs the star recorded before handing them over to other artists, and was curated by Jay Z and Troy Carter before being released on TIDAL.

The track-list on the record, which was released for the icons birthday, includes hits like Manic Monday, which he passed on to The Bangles, Nothing Compares 2 U, which was then recorded by Sinéad OConnor, and The Glamorous Life, which was released by Sheila E.

Jay Z made a statement about the Purple Rain singer, who tragically died back in 2016 at the age of 57, in a press release.

Prince led the way, for artistic freedom, for ownership. Hes one of the bravest people I can think of in the industry, he said.
