Deep in the bowels of Paisley Park, the recording studio compound Prince built in Chanhassen, Minnesota, lies a room-sized vault.... The walls are lined with shelves, organized chronologically and bursting with unreleased recordings... A lifetime’s worth of songs, videos, documentaries, and more. No one knows how many. Hundreds, certainly. Thousands, probably...

If you know anything about Prince...that won’t surprise you. Making music was like breathing to him...simply in that he did both all the time...

...Now the question is, what will happen to what’s inside the vault? A few years ago, Prince made a passing reference to releasing it all in 2013, but nothing came of it. He also once threatened to just burn everything. Will the world ever hear the rest of what Prince made?
