A new Prince album of previously unreleased material is expected in September

On Saturday (April 21), which marked the 2nd anniversary of Prince's untimely death, fans remembered the musician's life and music with tributes on social media.

A new album of previously unreleased music from the legendary singer will be released in September, Troy Carter, whose Atom Factory oversees Prince's estate, told Variety. Well, last week we got the brilliant original Prince recording of "Nothing Compares 2 U", and late a year ago, fans were treated to the song "Moonbeam Levels", which was released on the posthumous greatest hits compilation Prince 4Ever.

"Prince basically saved everything, so there are decades of music and video and artefacts, but it takes long time to go through each one of those and research the historical context", said Carter, who moved the Vault to a climate-controlled facility called Iron Mountain in Los Angeles previous year.

The entertainment advisor has been given full access to Prince's vault of archives, which Carter says is nearly endless.

The entertainment adviser did mention two new family-sanctioned websites: www.prince2me.com, which welcomes fans to contribute comments, and www.princeestate.com, which features an annotated discography. The album will be released in cooperation with Prince's original label Warner Brothers, who released all of Prince's original albums, from 1978 to 1995. "So we're putting the final touches on it - it'll come in the fall".

"The vault was just one room and that room ran over into multiple rooms..."

Are you as excited as we are for a whole new album of Prince material?
