Prince's Music Could Be Available To Stream Soon

Prince's music could soon be available to stream on Spotify and Apple Music with his estate currently working on securing deals with the streaming platforms.

The estate of Prince Rogers Nelson, one of the few musicians unavailable on most streaming services, is closing in on deals that will pave the way for the artist’s music to play at major outlets like Spotify and Apple Music, according to a person with knowledge of the matter. Representatives of Prince, who died in April at age 57, have all but finished a deal for songs like “Purple Rain” and “When Doves Cry” to be played in public, said the person, who asked not to be named because the talks are private. The estate is also nearing a deal with a record label, the person said, without being more specific. Both are preludes to streaming agreements.
