Prince wins music rights from Warner

Prince now owns the rights to the music he recorded on Warner Bros. Records after years of disputes and battles with the record label.

Warner Bros. announced Friday it had reached an agreement with the pop icon, who was signed to the label from 1978 to the mid-1990s, during which time he released key projects including “Purple Rain,” “1999,” “Diamonds and Pearls” and “Around the World in a Day.”

Financial terms weren’t disclosed.

Prince’s new partnership will include the release of “previously unheard material” from his nearly two-decade tenure on the label. A 30th-anniversary edition of “Purple Rain” will be released this summer.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer also said he’s working on new music apart from Warner Bros. Prince has recently been performing with the all-female trio 3RDEYEGIRL.
