23 new Prince albums are now on streaming services

If you’re a Prince lover then we have some great news for you as 23 of his albums have just released on streaming services as well as a new anthology.

After Prince’s death the notoriously streaming-shy artist’s work came back to streaming services due to disputes over Tidal’s exclusivity deal for his music. But only a limited number of the purple god’s albums were made available, though that fortunately included Controversy, 1999, Purple Rain and Sign o’ the Times.

Thanks to a deal between Prince’s Estate and Sony Music earlier this year, another 35 albums from Prince’s extensive recording catalogue will be released. Of those, 23 have just been launched on streaming services including Apple Music and Spotify as well as a new curated compilation which covers the later years of Prince’s work; Prince Anthology: 1995 – 2010.

The albums newly available for streaming are as follows:

  • The Gold Experience (1995)
  • Chaos and Disorder (1996)
  • Emancipation (1996)
  • Crystal Ball (1998)

The Prince Anthology: 1995 – 2010 features 37 tracks from the middle-to-later years of Prince when he was still releasing numerous albums.
