Musicology (2004), 3121 (2006) and Planet Earth (2007) will all be reissued on 8th February.

Musicology was originally released as a gift for every fan who purchased a ticket to his Musicology Live2004ever tour, reportedly seen by over 1.47 million people internationally.

3121 was Prince’s 31st studio album, and Planet Earth was released as a free album in partnership with the UK newspaper The Mail on Sunday to promote his 21-night run at the O2 arena in London.

Rare music videos recorded during this time have also been made available – including the Salma Hayek-directed ‘Te Amo Corazón’ and a ‘Chelsea Rogers’ promo shot during London Fashion Week.

The rereleases follow the Prince estate’s reissue of 35 of his studio albums, as well as news that Ava Duvernay is working on a documentary about the musician for Netflix.

Since Prince’s death his estate have released and reissued dozens of albums from the artist’s storied, long guarded, archival vault.
