Prince Announces New Album “HITnRUN”


The Purple One announced today that his new album HITnRUN: Phase One is out on September 7th exclusive on Tidal. Prince removed his catalogue from all other streaming services except Jay-Z’s platform. Read is statement below.

After one meeting, it was obvious that Jay Z and the team he has assembled at TIDAL recognize and applaud the effort that real musicians put in2 their craft 2 achieve the very best they can at this pivotal time in the music industry. Secondly, TIDAL have honored Us with a non-restrictive arrangement that once again allows Us to continue making art in the fashion We’ve grown accustomed 2 and We’re Extremely grateful 4 their generous support. And lastly, in the tech-savvy, real-time world We all live in 2day, everything is faster. From its conception and that one & only meeting, HITNRUN took about 90 days 2 prepare its release. If that’s what freedom feels like, HITNRUN is what it sounds like.

One Prince song remains on Spotify, however. Earlier this summer, Prince put “Stare” on the streaming service. We thought it meant he was changing his tune but it seems unlikely now.
