As of 4/18/14 Prince is in the news again and not for a name change or wearing assless pants on TV. He is in the news for his music. More specifically, his music from the 80’s. It was announced today that Prince will retain ownership of his master recordings he made for Warner Brothers. Warner Brothers retains the right to digitally remaster and re-release his old catalogue. Being a hardcore fan since 1983 this should be sending thoughts of Little Red Corvette’s and Purple Rain dancing in my head, however I am holding in a wait and see mode.

On this episode of the Prince Podcast, we talk about Prince's new album being exclusive to the streaming service TIDAL. Some fans are expressing displeasure with this. What do streaming services like TIDAL offer?
Also a bonus discussion on movie Straight Outta Compton. Michael Dean just read a book called Beatings By Dre(the original article which the book is based on can be found here) and wonders how close to reality will the movie be.
Prince and the streaming service Tidal have announced the next release from the entertainer will be exclusively on TIDAL on September 7, 2015.
The upcoming release, the experimental, HITNRUN, was first announced by his band, 3RDEYEGIRL, on BBC radio late last month, following the release of the critically praised first single, "HARDROCKLOVER".
Prince released a statement:
"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."
Jay-Z had this to say:
"Prince has always been a visionary, a free-thinker. We're honored to offer his breadth of work, "1999," "Purple Rain," etc., music that has inspired so many, on TIDAL. We're also excited to be the home for his new upcoming album, HITNRUN. Both Prince and TIDAL share the belief that all creatives should have the opportunity to speak directly to those that love and support them. This partnership with Prince represents TIDAL's philosophy in its truest form, a 1 to 1 connection and direct delivery of artistry to the world."
HITNRUN is produced by Prince and co-produced by Joshua Welton
