Listen: Prince's 'Anthology: 1995-2010' & 22 Other Albums Released Digitally
Over 300 songs, totaling 23 albums, have been added to Prince's digital catalog and are newly available to stream and download thanks to a recent deal between the late GRAMMY-winning artist's Estate and Sony's Legacy Recordings.
The albums, including Anthology: 1995-2010, a new 37-track compilation created by the Prince Estate, are up on all major online music providers. This makes many of the recordings available digitally for the first time.
Anthology begins with 1996's "Emancipation," from the album of the same name, which Prince referred to as his "most important record" – it was his first release following his breakup with Warner Bros. Records. Emancipation is also newly available digitally, as well as 2004's Musicology, for which Prince received five nominations and two wins at the 47th GRAMMY Awards.
The deal also gives Sony/Legacy the rights to release 12 more albums for the first time digitally, beginning in 2021. These albums, recorded by Prince from 1978-1996 while he was infamously under contract at Warner Bros., include the iconic GRAMMY nominated albums 1999 and Sign O' The Times, the latter which was inducted into the GRAMMY Hall of Fame in 2017.
