SiriusXM has announced a new series of artist stations, including a channel dedicated to Prince, that is set to debut on the satellite radio company's app beginning this Friday (May 1st). Listeners can tune in for free until May 31.

The Prince Channel will air music spanning across the Grammy, Golden Globe and Academy Award winner's catalog, from Prince's early work to his iconic hits. Most notably, the station will also include an exclusive audio performance of a never-before-heard demo of a conceptual radio show Prince created in 2005, before the release of his legendary 2006 album 3121.

The special “features songs from his unparalleled catalog, personal favorite selections by other artists, mixes, interviews, and a peek into his legendary vault of unreleased studio and live recordings,” SiriusXM said.

Listeners can also expect a takeover from Sheila E., playlists from Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, and SiriusXM’s recent Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute To Prince Town Hall with Jimmy Jam, Sheila E. and H.E.R.

Other artist channels set to launch this Friday include Guns N' Roses, Fleetwood Mac and more.

This 3-CD SoulMusic Records’ set celebrates the recordings that Solomon Burke made for the legendary Atlantic Records label between 1960 and 1968. Solomon is generally acknowledged as one of the greatest soul singers to emerge during the genre’s golden days. He signed to Atlantic before ‘soul music’ became a bona fide sub-genre of African-American music and he was, in fact, one of the first artists to use ‘soul’ to describe his music. He would eventually be known the world over as ‘The King of Rock and Soul’.
