There’s a new album of Prince songs coming soon, and they are songs you probably already know! It is a collection of songs he’s written for other artists.

Besides his own mega-hits, Prince also wrote chart-toppers for other artists. Thanks to his estate and Warner Bros. Records, fans will soon get to check out the demo versions of those songs.

Hitting the TIDAL streaming service first on June 7, Originals will feature 15 previously unreleased tracks. Two weeks later on June 21, a physical CD copy will be available. Vinyl enthusiasts will have to wait a month later.

Some of the later-made-famous cuts include Time’s “Jungle Love,” Sheila E’s “The Glamorous Life,” The Bangles’ “Manic Monday,” and Sinead O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares 2 U”.
