The Prince Estate’s Big Plans
In April of 2016 Prince was found dead, in an elevator at his Minnesota compound, from an opioid overdose, before he could finish a book he had started. But the book will still see release.
Spiegel & Grau is preparing to publish Prince’s posthumous memoir, possibly this fall. Prince reportedly finished 50 pages; those largely handwritten journals will be filled out with photos and memorabilia.
In the first two years after Prince’s death, little happened in the way of unreleased music, merchandise and other projects.
Starting in the fall however, fans will finally be able to hear unreleased music, wear newly commissioned Prince clothing, buy tickets to see an orchestra playing Prince material, and hear Prince songs in movies and TV shows. There’s even preliminary talk of a Prince-themed hotel.
