Official Prince Discography Website Looks Amazing

The official Prince discography website is a wonder to behold.

The Prince estate is commemorating the second anniversary of his death by releasing intimate early works that became iconic moments. Prince’s original recording of “Nothing Compares 2 U,” which was brought to life as a megahit by Sinead O’Connor, dropped along with a music video filled with vintage footage. The estate is preparing to dip into Prince’s vault to bring “’an immersive annotated discography website highlighting the incomparable breadth and depth of Prince’s recorded catalogue, featuring audio previews, photos, videos, quotes and editorial commentary,’” according to Variety.

“Prince wrote hundreds of songs in his lifetime and released dozens of albums, ranging from studio recordings to live albums, compilations, and collaborations with his many affiliated groups and protégés,” according to the estate. “Even with this robust catalog available, the world is only just beginning to understand the full scope of Prince’s work, which also included countless unreleased recordings. This is the start of an evolving exploration of Prince’s genius…”

The Estate launched an immersive annotated discography, known as Prince2Me, website highlighting the scope of Prince’s recorded catalogue. The website features audio previews, photos, videos, quotes and editorial commentary.

The website is broken down by category: “Studio Albums,” “Live Albums,” and Legacy Releases Compilations and Major Albums Produced by Prince. These will have subsets like Sheila E, Ingrid Chavez, The Time, Vanity 6, Mavis Staples, Chaka Khan, and the other artists who came through Paisley Park. The site promises more “mind-blowing” unreleased music is on its way.

The Prince Estate says this will be the first of many upcoming online experiences. The announcement comes after news on the online pop-up store and an interactive fan-sourced section of Prince2Me. Fans can craft message by mixing Prince vocabulary, video, and images provided by the Estate. The messages can then be shared through social media. Twitter users will share their Prince2Me messages using #Prince2Me or #NothingCompares2U will be able to activate an exclusive Prince Love Symbol Twitter emoji.

Oh, and the site makes your mouse curser look like the pupil of an eye.
