The legal dispute between the Prince Estate and Tidal is over. Both parties have reached a settlement and, according to a new press release, that means we’re getting a new posthumous Prince album.

Announced on Friday, Jay-Z is working with the Prince Estate to select “previously unreleased music sourced from Prince’s vast archive of Vault recordings” for the upcoming release, which is expected to drop in 2019. The album will first stream exclusively on Tidal for 14 days and a download will be available seven days after its debut. A physical release will follow thereafter from the Prince Estate.

“Our only goal is to share Prince’s music with his fans as he wanted,” Jay-Z said in a statement. “After thoughtful and honest conversation with him, he chose TIDAL as his partner for HITnRUN Phase One and HITnRUN Phase Two, and we will continue to respect and honor Prince’s enduring legacy and wishes with this new collection.”

Prince’s estate had sued Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, which owns Tidal, in 2016 for copyright infringement over claims Prince’s music had been streamed without permission. Friday’s press release notes their settlement “does not involve any of Prince’s music catalogue that is subject to prior agreements with Warner Brothers Records.”

“I’m very pleased this is resolved and we get to honor the relationship between Prince and Tidal with this album,” Troy Carter from the Prince Estate said, referring to the legal woes. “We look forward to fans hearing the new music and experiencing the genius of Prince.”
