The music was exclusive to Tidal since 2015
As the first anniversary of his death approaches, fans of Prince received some good news this Sunday as his back catalogue reappeared on other streaming services, aside from Tidal, for the first time since 2015.
Prince gave Tidal exclusive use of his music back in 2015, preventing Spotify and Apple Music subscribers from streaming it. Warner Brother's, the record company to which Prince was signed, announced that albums such as "Purple Rain" and "Dirty Mind" would be available on all streaming services from Sunday.
In a statement, Warner Bros. Records Chairman and CEO Cameron Strang thanked Prince's estate for its help to make the deal possible.
"Prince recorded his most influential and popular music during his time with Warner Bros. and we are deeply aware of our responsibility to safeguard and nurture his incredible legacy. Warner Bros. is 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."
