Prince’s vast music vault up for purchase, for several million dollars

prince2Got $35 million? If so, you can buy Prince’s music vault, Billboard reports.

Billboard cites a source
close to Prince’s estate advisers Charles Koppelman and L. Londell McMillan as saying the late musician’s vault is being shopped around, with each of the three major labels in talks (Sony, Universal, and Warner).

Now the question is what’s in there.

“What exactly is in Prince’s studio vault — which contains thousands of hours of music recorded over four decades — is unclear, as the estate is still sorting through the artist’s assets and determining who will control the estate; sources say the estate has not yet begun cataloging the music in the vault,” writes Jem Aswad of Billboard.

This is probably good news for fans who have been hoping to hear what was in the vault. Prince did not leave a will, making the fate of his vault unclear upon his death.

Billboard also reports a new Prince greatest hits collection as well as a deluxe edition of Purple Rain will be released in the months ahead.
