The Prince estate has inked a deal that will give Sony Music and Legacy Recordings distribution rights to 35 previously released Prince albums.
Starting this year, Legacy will be allowed to make available 19 Prince albums originally issued between 1995 and 2010. These include The Gold Experience, Emancipation, Rave Un2 the Joy Fantastic, The Rainbow Children, Musicology and Planet Earth. Legacy has yet to announce the exact date these albums will be made available.
As part of the deal, Legacy will also be able to distribute other post-1995 Prince material such as previously released singles, B-sides, remixes, non-album tracks, live recordings and music videos. Additional albums Prince released in 2014 and 2015 will be distributed at a later date.
