Tidal download shop

Well, I did not see this before, and they call it their 'new Tidal Shop":

Tidal now has a download shop where you can buy some of the exclusive Purple Picks like Stare and If Eye Could Get Ur Attention (MP3 or Flac)!

I think I'll get them now before P changes his mind biggrin

MP3 in € is 1,29, which is the same as iTunes charges for most of their tracks. (also 256kbps)

Considering this is an "exclusive" I'm happy they don't ask Beatport alike amounts..

iTunes is usually £0.99 for a single in the UK store.

couldn't see them either but when you search for the album (for example search for: Prince Chocolate Invasion) it will pop up in search results.

Ah then that's different from Dutch iTunes store. Some €0.99 here but most new popular tracks €1.29.

Wel at least The War is a bargain, 26 minutes for € 1.29 lol

You can buy songs without being a member, it would be kinda silly if they made you pay for the privilege of being able to pay for songs smile

I think the download store is available without subscription. You do need to create an account to buy tracks.

Remember, these are Prince's songs. Don't put it past him.

I'm wondering if The Chocolate Invasion, Slaughterhouse and Xpectation FLAC files are true FLAC? Meaning, are the sourced from "CD-quality" files?

Ah, so another step (aside from the appointment of a new CEO from Soundcloud) of TIDAL becoming a self-contained distribution platform, streaming AND retail. The industry is really going to go for Jay Z's neck now.

Thanks so much for the heads-up! I was just saying the other day that I don't yet have IICGUA but didn't want to pay for the monthly Tidal service. I'm heading over there now to purchase just the one song.

I can never tell the difference between FLAC and a high quality mp3, FlAC is a waste of money for me.
