The Labor Day weekend has brought a new Prince album to the public. The bad news is that you’re out of luck unless you’re a TIDAL customer. HIT N RUN (Phase One), Prince’s 35th studio album, is a TIDAL exclusive.
Prince has been defensive over the ownership of his work for a few decades and recently likened record contracts to “slavery.” So, it’s not too much of a surprise that HIT N RUN dropped on a streaming service with a pro-artists platform.
HIT N RUN features 11 songs and has the prior released “HARDROCKLOVER” as its lead single. Non-TIDAL customers can listen to 30-second samplings here.
