After weeks of rumors accentuated by the placement of purple Spotify billboards in New York and London, the streaming service confirmed that Prince’s Warner Bros. catalog will be made available on Sunday. Titles include most of the music Prince recorded before 1995, including standout albums Dirty Mind, 1999, and Purple Rain.

The Warner Bros. music will also be available on other streaming services, including Apple Music.

Sunday’s release of Prince’s music coincides with the Grammys, where the artist is expected to be honored with a tribute performance. Prince won seven Grammy awards in his lifetime before passing away from an accidental opioid overdose last April.

Prince’s catalog had actually been available on Spotify before, but the musician was protective of his work and pulled most of his tracks from the streaming service in 2015. Only one song — the single “Stare,” which Prince exclusively released on Spotify just weeks after removing his music — is currently available for listening.

On Thursday, Universal Music Group announced a separate deal in which it acquired the rights to Princes’s post 1995-works, as well as unreleased tracks from the artist’s vault.
