Prince may have passed on, but he left behind a massive vault full of unheard music. Today that vault opens once more to unveil Originals, a posthumous album containing previously unreleased demos.

Highlighting the songwriter skills of The High Priest of Pop, these early tracks were later made famous by acts such as The Bangles, Sheila E., Sinead O’Connor, and others. Among the hits music fans may recognize from Originals: The Time’s “Jungle Love”, Sheila E.’s “The Glamorous Life”, The Bangles’ “Manic Monday,” and, of course, Sinead O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares 2 U”.

The new album’s 15 tracks were specially chosen collaboratively by Troy Carter, on behalf of The Prince Estate, and JAY-Z, according to a press statement.

This album’s release coincides with Prince’s 61st birthday. It also comes ahead of The Beautiful Ones, his long-in-the-works memoir, slated for release in October.
