In case you missed it, Prince pulled his catalog from nearly every streaming service recently except for a select few. And as you might expect, he's releasing his next album in one place: Tidal. HITNRUN is the title that arrives on September 7th, and the exclusive release is the latest development between the artist and the streaming service since the two first got friendly back in May. Back in the spring, Tidal livestreamed Prince's Rally 4 Peace concert in Baltimore. Of course, pulling his music from those other services isn't stopping the artist from using them to promote singles. Last week, "Stare" popped up exclusively on Spotify -- a service which boasts a few more subscribers than Tidal.
"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 (sic) their craft 2 (sic) achieve the very best they can at this pivotal time in the music industry," Prince explains. "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 (sic) and we're extremely grateful 4 (sic) their generous support."
