Will We Ever Hear The Music In Prince's Vault?

Prince released 39 studio albums during his 40-year career but it is the wealth of hidden material which has left some unanswered questions.

It is well known that the singer-songwriter kept thousands of songs in the so-called "Vault" at his Paisley Park complex in Minnesota.

The artist fought many battles with record labels over his music, which he wanted to release more frequently.

When he fell out with Warner Brothers Records and changed his name in the early 90s he fulfilled his contractual obligations by releasing lacklustre music which failed to light up the charts.

Prince found it "abhorrent" that he would "use that type of intellectual creativity and pour everything into it and give to people only to have somebody else own it at the end of the day," Owen Husney, the star's first manager, told Reuters.

Last year, Prince's former sound engineer Susan Rogers told The Guardian the recordings are in an "actual bank vault, with a thick door".

Composer Brent Fischer, who worked with Prince for over 30 years, said he believes "over 70%" of the music he and his father Clare Fischer have helped create is yet to be released.

The singer is thought to be worth over £200m but if his estate releases this material, that figure is likely to rise much higher.

"Ownership of his catalogue will follow his estate," veteran Los Angeles-based entertainment lawyer Jay Cooper said.
