Dig, if you will, the picture…

The music of one of the greatest recording artists of all time and one of my personal favorites is finally on Spotify. Prince Rogers Nelson had a famously prickly relationship with the internet, record labels, rights and royalties and streaming music, making his catalog quite unavailable for even paying subscribers to Spotify like myself. Fortunately for me, I had been buying Prince’s music since I was 12 years old, accumulating a collection of full albums as well as rare and out-of-print recordings and B-sides.

Spotify teased the release of Prince’s music some weeks ago with purple posters on New York City subway platforms with just a date announcement. Promise kept, and Prince’s music is now finally available for streaming on Spotify (my service of choice), Apple Music, Pandora, Google Play and others.

So slap on your best headphones, fire up your favorite streaming service and party like it’s 1999…
