Prince’s estate is reportedly releasing a 15-track album comprised of previously unreleased songs.

Available June 7 via Tidal, Originals will stream from June 7 to 20 before receiving a physical release via Warner Bros on June 21. The songs are from his “Vault” recordings and selected by Troy Carter on behalf of his estate alongside Jay-Z.

The recordings were made between 1981 and 1991 and were composed and written for other artists, including the Bangles’ “Manic Monday” and Sheila E.’s “The Glamorous Life.” The album closes with Prince’s original version of “Nothing Compares 2 U,” which was released in 2018 as a standalone.
