Prince's discography has now hit streaming services


Listeners can also jam out on Google Play and Amazon Music Unlimited, with Apple Music not far behind, Pitchfork reports.

From July 2015 until today, the only streaming service to host Prince's catalog was Tidal, stemming from an arrangement that the artist made with the service that is now in dispute. Two complete concert films are also due on that day.

According to a press release, via Pitchfork, Warner Bros. "Warner thrilled to be able to bring Prince's music to his millions of fans around the world via streaming services, fittingly on music's biggest night". Only one album of unreleased material was unveiled previously in October.

"When we make any of Prince's music available to fans - from the hits to unreleased gems - we are committed to upholding Prince's high creative standards", Cameron Strang, chief executive of Warner Bros. Sunday's announcement covers streaming for his music through 1996.

In November, Prince's estate cleared the way for a wider streaming arrangement by signing a publishing deal with Universal Music for the artist's entire catalogue.

Now, Warner Bros. has announced that the late icon's classic catalog owned by the label is finally rolling out across all streaming platforms today (February 12), just as the Grammy's prepare tribute to the singer, who died of a drug overdose on April 21, 2016.

Meanwhile, Prince's band The Revolution have announced a new batch of USA tour dates. In the same interview, Prince voiced support for Jay Z.

Their set list included classics from the era including "Let's Go Crazy", "Little Red Corvette", "Raspberry Beret", "Kiss" and of course "Purple Rain".
