Prince's 5 best-selling albums

The project is a partnership between Prince's estate, Tidal and Warner Bros. Records (which is owned by CNN's parent company).

It comes on the heels of the announcement that the singer's memoir will be released on October 29.

The memoir Prince was working on before he died is coming out this fall

According to the book's description, "'The Beautiful Ones' is the story of how Prince became Prince -- a first-person account of a kid absorbing the world around him and then creating a persona, an artistic vision, and a life, before the hits and fame that would come to define him."

The new music will be released exclusively on Tidal on June 7, with other streaming services and a physical album coming later.
