Between releases from Prince’s famed Paisley Park vault, the superstar’s estate is finding room in its busy release schedule to reissue albums of Prince’s post Warner Brothers career, those whose rights was since awarded to Sony Legacy in partnership with The Prince Estate.
This spring has witnessed a trio of announcements of releases that should keep Prince fans occupied this summer.
Legacy Recordings, a sub-brand within Sony Music Entertainment has been awarded the rights to release Prince’s post-Warner Bros catalogue, the material he recorded since leaving the label in 1993.
In an interview given by Troy Carter, CEO of Atom Factory, the company tasked by Prince’s estate to curate the music icon’s unreleased music archive, has given details of a forthcoming album to be released by Warner Bros., September 28th.
The likelihood of hearing songs released from Prince’s vault soon were dashed this week as the dispute between the icon’s estate and Universal Records reached boiling point, for the music giant wants out of the $31m deal it struck with Prince’s estate in November last year.
The release of a brand new EP featuring 6 tracks of previously unreleased music has been hit with a legal challenge within a day of its announcement. With more music promised to follow.
