The singer Prince has died at his recording studio, age 57 but his ghost has been busy in the studio working on a new album which has been released in the last couple of minutes.

Entertainment website TMZ said his body was discovered at his compound in Chanhassen, Minnesota this morning. His spokesperson confirmed his death to the Associated Press, but his ghost is determined to live on despite shuffling off its mortal coil.

The Body of Prince has confirmed that he has not given explicit permission for the ghost, The Artist Paranormally Known As Prince, to release the record on popular music streaming service Spotify, but pirates have already leaked the work on Ouija boards across the nation.
