|Congratulations!!! Prince Now Own The Rights To All His Recorded Music|
Prince’s new partnership will include the release of “previously unheard material” from his nearly two-decade tenure on the label. A 30th-anniversary edition of “Purple Rain” will be released this summer.

The agreement comes years after Prince’s relationship with Warner Bros. soured as he failed to gain possession of the music he recorded for the label. He changed his name to an unpronounceable symbol and wrote the word “slave” on his cheek. He also vowed to rerecord the 17 albums he released on the label and sell them on his own.
After Warner, Prince began releasing music in 1996 over the Internet, but didn’t match his previous successes. He struck deals with Arista Records and Columbia Records, where he saw a comeback with the Grammy-winning “Musicology” in 2004.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer also said he’s working on new music apart from Warner Bros. Prince has recently been performing with the all-female trio 3RDEYEGIRL.
