Jay-Z is hosting an epic listening party in Los Angeles for Prince’s Originals album.
The party will be a Tidal event. Other gatherings are happening around the U.S. as well as Spain, Poland, and Brazil.
The album features unreleased tracks from Prince’s vault. Jay-Z worked with Prince’s estate to curate the selections.
“Prince led the way, for artistic freedom, for ownership,” Jay-Z said in a statement. “He’s one of the bravest people I can think of in the industry. He trusted us, not just me, but TIDAL, to continue his fight. Trying to help further that legacy through his music is both an honor we couldn’t pass up as an organization dedicated to empowering artists. This gives his true fans that peak behind the curtain.”
Prince previously teamed with Tidal for a run of exclusive releases, including the 2015 albums Hit n Run Phase One and Hit n Run Phase Two., and personally curated vault selections.
The listening party will take place on June 6th. The album will stream on Tidal starting on June 7th. You’ll be able to purchase your own copy on June 21st.
