Washington: Music icon Prince is set to release his new album, ‘HITNRUN’, exclusively on music streaming platform Tidal.

The music icon is set to unveil his new LP, ‘hitnrun’, his follow up to 2014’s ‘Art Official Age’, exclusively on Jay Z’s music streaming platform Tidal. He said: ‘’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 into their craft to 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 to and we’re extremely grateful for their generous support. ‘’And lastly, in the tech-savvy, real-time world we all live in today, everything is faster. From its conception and that one and only meeting, HITNRUN took about 90 days to prepare its release. If that’s what freedom feels like, HITNRUN is what it sounds like.’’–CMU

Of the partnership, the ‘Empire State of Mind’ hitmaker added: ‘’Prince has always been a visionary, a free-thinker. ‘’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 one-to-one connection and direct delivery of artistry to the world.’’
