Tidal's exclusive streaming rights to Prince's Warner Bros. Records catalog is over.
The record company announced that starting Sunday, his music on the label — including albums like the seminal Purple Rain to his early work like Dirty Mind — will be made available on all streaming services.
The timing of the release — on the day of the Grammys — was not coincidental. All of the music was expected to be available on all streaming sites by the time the awards show began and a tribute to the singer is planned during the ceremony.
In a statement, Warner Bros. Records Chairman and CEO Cameron Strang thanked Prince's estate for its help to make the deal possible.
Said Strang: "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."
