Prince’s entire Warner Bros. catalog can now be streamed on popular platforms such as Apple Music, Spotify and Pandora, putting an end to Tidal’s exclusive rights.

The exciting news was announced on Sunday, just in time for the late singer’s tribute at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards.

“Prince recorded his most influential and popular music during his time with Warner Bros. and we are deeply aware of our responsibility to safeguard and nurture his incredible legacy,” said Warner Bros. Records Chairman and CEO Cameron Strang. “Warner Bros. is thrilled to be able to bring Prince’s music to his millions of fans around the world via streaming services, fittingly on music’s biggest night.”

Prince was signed to Warner Bros. from 1978 to 1996, where he released 18 albums including Prince, Dirty Mind, Controversy, Purple Rain and Sign O’ the Times, to name a few. Some of Prince’s biggest hits at Warner Bros. include “I Wanna Be Your Lover,” “Little Red Corvette,” “Purple Rain,” “When Doves Cry” and the list goes on.

On June 9, Warner Bros. will release a remastered version of Prince’s signature album Purple Rain, as well as two albums of unreleased music and two concert films from his Paisley Park vault.

“When we make any of Prince’s music available to fans — from the hits to unreleased gems — we are committed to upholding Prince’s high creative standards and we know fans will be thrilled when they hear these albums and see these films,” Strang said.

Prince died on April 21, 2016 at his home in suburban Minneapolis. He was 57.
