Police combed Prince’s Minnesota mansion amid rumors of an overdose but the stash they likely found was even more mind-blowing.
The pop icon talked for years about recording unreleased music and stashing it in a vault. It has been confirmed that it was true, the Daily Express reported.
His sound engineer Susan Rogers told the Daily Express that vault contains some of the artist’s greatest works, including a track written in 1982 titled “Moonbeam Levels” she described as “unbelievably beautiful.”
The vault contains so much music, around 2,000 tracks, that an album of Prince’s work could be released every year for a century, according to the Express.
The music is held under tight security, with a huge door and combination lock, like a maximum security bank vault.
Rogers told the Express that the vault became “sort of an obsession.”
“I wanted everything he’s ever recorded right here,” she said.
“I started amassing them and I started making a database for all these things and then that’s when we began Paisley Park and we realised if we’re going to have a vault, let’s have a vault,” she added.
Saxophonist Eric Leeds confirmed the rumors as well.
“We worked on a whole bunch of instrumentals and Prince threw it all to me and said, ‘make me an album’
“I actually sequenced the record. There was one 45-minute jam called ‘Junk Music.’ The project was going to be called ‘The Flesh’ and it was the greatest thing in the world in Prince’s mind,” he said.
The vault and it’s contents “will go to whoever inherits it from his estate,” according to what entertainment lawyer Jay Cooper told the Telegraph.
For his fans, all that will matter is that someone starts releasing his works ASAP.
