Fresh musical content from Prince will be released weekly for the remainder of the year, according to USA Today.
The Prince Estate in a partnership with Legacy Recordings will share a bulk of previously unseen and rare music videos from the music icon until Dec. 14. The first batch of recordings was released on Nov. 2.
The musical visuals were filmed between 1995 to 2010.
On Friday, videos for records including “Face Down,” “The Holy River,” “Somebody’s Somebody,” and “Betcha By Golly Wow!” were shared on YouTube. Each track is from Prince’s 19th studio album, Emancipation, which released in Nov. 1996.
The three-disc album is a concept album that celebrated Prince being freed from his 18-year contract with Warner Bros. Records. The singer, songwriter, musician and producer was vocal about the contentious relationship with the record label.
As a creative, the Minneapolis native fought back against corporate ownership and artistic control of the music he created.
During the height of the quarrel, Prince scribbled the word “slave” across his face.
“People think I’m a crazy fool for writing ‘slave’ on my face,” he told Rolling Stone in 1996. “But if I can’t do what I want to do, what am I?”
In the same year, he married Mayte Garcia on Valentine’s Day and released two other projects.
Prince died in April 2016 from an accidental fentanyl overdose at his Paisley Park home in Chanhassen, Minnesota at the age of 57.
