Prince's Vault

So it's pretty clear he has a vault of unreleased music, who does that go to when he dies?

my guess is that he'll pull a steveland and request that the contents of the vault be destroyed upon his death.

Why do people bring up Prince's death. i mean, to me it sounds like there are money grubbers out there.

i think it would be unfortunate, but i don't really see it as selfish. maybe to him, the vault is full of unfinished tracks and songs he's unsure of, and if he doesn't want us hearing that stuff when he's alive, why would he want us hearing it just because he died? it makes sense to me. it's not what i would like to have happen, but i think it's unfortunately fair.

i'm divided about this: on one hand i can c him locking those songs away, cause who has the combination anyway? lol

but then on the other hand, it could b really nice 2 have a whole slew of post mordum releases which would include songs that we have heard about in terms of titles but very few have heard them like cosmic day, 3 nigs watching a kung fu flick, junk music, etc
man, he has such an amazing body of music that it's sad to see him constrict it down to the basics. he's too talented for the lineup he's doing. estelle 81

I don't think they are money grubbers, especially on this site. It's just a bunch of Prince fans who want to hear his music.

Don't forget, part of the vault has leaked and there are some pretty great songs there, so one can only imagine what else he has stored away that we have not even heard.

I think it would be great to get them but if he destroys them (which he will- even though he always said he would give the music away) it is up to him. Maybe he doesn't like a lot of it or doesn’t think it is worth to be released...you know how we can have 200 photos from a trip but there is always a few we put away because we don't want anyone to see them...maybe it is the same for the vault. This is only an idea … I am sure he loves most of it because I am sure there isn’t a lot he doesn’t like but who knows…

Think how great some of the B-Sides have been … Erotic city, She’s always in my hair, 17 Days, Feel U up…just to name a few and these would have been in the vault otherwise… Think what else is in there … 1996 Crystal Ball CD was really good and most of it was from the vault…CHILLS...

it's cool u may think that CB was really good, but it was half assed. instead of remixes he could have put songs like electric intercourse, in a large room with no light, rebirth of the flesh, god is alive, cross the line etc instead

Rather than "instead of remixes" I would suggest "in addition to the remixes." Why cut tracks when he could have simply filled up the remaining space on the discs?

It'll be used to pay off his ex-wives, who are huge fans of his music. Every year, handlers of Prince's estate will have to make a new mixed CD of unheard Vault tracks for Mani and Mayte.

I doubt it (hope not). He is embracing his vault at the moment. (eg. playing "1000 Hugs & Kisses" @ the Main Show @ the o2.)
