Originally announced in April, the Prince estate has teamed up with TIDAL and Warner Bros. Records to release a 15-track album called Originals, with 14 previously-unreleased songs. Now the collection has arrived on TIDAL.

While Prince is best-known for his own hit songs, he also put his musical talents to work for other artists, writing and recording demos. Often, these demo tracks would be used as the master for the final song, with just the vocal track being replaced and minor instrumental tweaks. Many of these songs became hits for the artists, such as “The Glamorous Life” by Sheila E., “Manic Monday” by The Bangles, and “Jungle Love” by The Time.

The one track that has been previously released is Prince’s original 1984 version of “Nothing Compares 2 U,” which was released last year as a single. As for the other tracks, a new press release reveals that they were “selected collaboratively by JAY-Z and Troy Carter on behalf of The Prince Estate.

Originals will stream for 14 days exclusively on TIDAL from June 7. It will then receive a wider release on all streaming partners, as well as physically on CD and LP. Stream it via TIDAL below, and check out the tracklist after the jump.
