Wear your best purple today.
Since his death on April 21, tributes and remembrances have filled the internet, though his albums were absent from most streaming sites, save for Tidal. Today the streaming platform, which previously hosted some 30 Prince albums, released 15 more, including rare gems The Black Album, Crystal Ball, and Chaos and Disorder.
In the week after his death, Prince’s singles and albums sold more than 4 million copies. His relationship with streaming music sites and the internet was famously complicated, though with the discovery of a vault at his Paisley Park home, containing scores of unreleased music, we might have access to more Prince in the future.
In honor of this day, the Current will also be playing the top 58 Prince songs this afternoon, as voted by listeners.
