An album of unreleased music from Prince will be released in September, Variety reports. The unnamed project comes a year after entertainment advisor (and global head of creative services for Spotify) Troy Carter took over Prince's estate, including the "vault" of archives he kept protected during his lifetime. Last week, on the anniversary of his death, his previously unreleased studio version of "Nothing Compares 2 U" was shared. According to Carter, the archives left behind are seemingly endless.
"Prince recorded and rehearsed and performed constantly, and he taped everything, so once you think you’ve gotten close [to finding everything], you find new things," he told Variety. The vault was just one room and that room ran over into multiple rooms, and this was [mostly] "before digitization so you have hard drives, and tapes and things like that. So we’re still in the process, and the fun part of my job is finding new things — every week I’m getting a new call about something special. Just two weeks ago we were doing a tape transfer and in one of the two-inch boxes we found the original lyrics to 'Kiss!' It’s amazing, the things that are starting to surface."
The new project will be available September 28. Until then, a new line of Prince merch is also available from the estate. Shop it here.
