Prince's albums Musicology, 3121 and Planet Earth will all be pressed to vinyl for the first time next year

Three Prince albums, released across the 2000s, are to be pressed to vinyl for the first time.

The albums - Musicology, 3121 and Planet Earth - will all be available as part of a deal struck between the Prince Estate and Sony Music earlier this year to reissue 35 of his studio albums released across his career.

These reissues follow a number of represses that have emerged in recent months, and will be available from February 8 through Sony Music's Legacy Recordings. They were originally released between 2004 and 2007 with Planet Earth never having received a full commercial release as it was given away for free with copies of The Mail on Sunday.
