Sony only does commercial exploitation.

Surely you don't mean Columbia.

If they're smart (or stealin' all our clever advice — and we ain't got payed a dime!), they're going for the Bootleg Series approach.
That's proper commercial "exploitation". The one where you don't fuck the customer where the sun doesn't shine.

Doing commerce doesn't necessarily mean "exploiting".

What do you mean tidal has the rights? No other streaming service can have post WB material? Is that true? Also I don’t think his later albums should be judged by whether the had top 40 CHR hits or not. The stuff that tops top 40 radio is mostly garbage these days. 3121 hit #1 on the charts and LotusFlow3r came close. I wouldn’t expect a huge uptick in sales of these albums but having his complete catalog out there for purchase/streaming on all the major services should be a priority. I hate going to iTunes and seeing such a huge gap; they have Come from 1993 and then nothing until 2014. I don’t know if TGE is WB or not but it needs to be out there too.


Since two years has passed since Prince'death, and the new deal with Tidal considering à new album, that implies that only Tidal has the rights for every album released after 1993.
.
3121 was released 12 years ago.
Lotus Flower was released 9 years ago, with an agressive Price for a triple album.
HNR1 was released 3 years ago and was a major flop.
HNR2 was physically released two yezrs ago ago, just After his passing, and it was a major flop.
So, in this context, à new album from recent material won t do better.

A flop based on what? Billboard charts? Considering the music that dominates these days I would never expect a Prince album to sell tons of copies or have a billion streams on Spotify or whatever.

No, it was only available in one store in the USa. It wasn t available beyond one fucking store, and you call that à physical release?

I think that peaking at only #40 one week, and then disappearing from the top 200 is what you Can call à major flop for an artist like that.

Especially just After his death, you would thought that it would attract some people...It sold only 57.000 ex since its initial release ! That s about what à new album would make if it was released.

Since I had a physical copy in my hand, and I live in Kentucky, yes. A physical release by mail is a physical release. Was GoldNigga a physical release? How about the 5CD Crystal Ball? They weren't in ANY stores. So yes, it was physically released 3 months prior to his passing. Whether it was widely available in all stores or not is another matter entirely.

Hate to break it to you but the world consists of a lot more than just the USA. I too had a physical copy before he died and I live in the UK.
'I loved him then, I love him now and will love him eternally. He's with our son now.' Mayte 21st April 2016 = the saddest quote I have ever read! RIP Prince and thanks for everything.

Not yet but Variety usually only reports from credible inside sources leaking them information.

I'd guess they're waiting to send out a press release until they have more information to release. Like what future releases they have slated.

https://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/prince-estate-sony-ink-distribution-deal-for-35-previously-released-albums-w522089

To cap off the deal, Legacy has also secured the distribution rights to 12 Prince albums originally released between 1978 and 1996, though the label will have to wait until 2021 to make those available. This portion of Prince's catalog includes classics such as his 1979 self-titled effort, Dirty Mind, Controversy, 1999, Sign 'O' The Times and Lovesexy. However, Legacy will not own the distribution rights to Prince's soundtrack albums like Purple Rain and Under the Cherry Moon.


What does this mean? Do rights revert from WB to Sony/Legacy? And why wouldn’t it include albums like PR and Parade? Seems very confusing.
