Prince's half-brother wants to release singer's vault music

Prince's half-brother Alfred Jackson has called for the late singer's remaining material to be released.

The singer died last month (Apr16) aged 57. Following his untimely death, it was claimed that he had left behind unreleased music in a vault in his Paisley Park Studios estate in Chanhassen, Minnesota.

And as he joined his relatives for the first probate hearing to discuss the outcome of Prince's estate in Minneapolis on Monday (02May16), the star's half-brother insisted that the hidden music should be made public to contribute to the singer's legacy.

"(To) let people know how great he really is," he told CNN.com.

However, it isn't just up to Jackson. The singer's only surviving full sibling, his sister Tyka Nelson, filed paperwork last week (ends01May16) stating that he had no known will at the time of his death. This means that under Minnesota law, his estate will be split between his surviving siblings.

Jackson added he has yet to broach the subject of releasing the music with his relatives, explaining: "That is something I haven't talked about with my family yet."

A week after Prince's death, an archive in his home, called the Vault, has been drilled open by Bremer Bank, the Minnesota institution Prince trusted with his finances over the years, People.com reported.

The late musician was the only one with the code to access the giant room filled with shelves and sealed with a large spinning wheel.

Entertainment lawyer Donald David, who represented the estates of Tupac Shakur and TLC's Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopez after their deaths, told People.com that the discovery of Prince's unreleased music is very important.

"I know from my past experience that very often some of that material needs significant editing," he said. "Some of it can be used, some of it can't be used.

"But you're going to see unreleased Prince albums - if it is properly managed - for the next two decades. As long as the estate is well-managed - and they don't go for a quick hit by doing something like selling his publishing rights - it will produce income into (what would have been) his great-grandchildren's years without any problems," he added.
