*The vault in Paisley Park said to hold an endless amount of unreleased Prince songs was drilled open, according to ABC News affiliate KSTP-TV.
Bremer Trust, the St. Cloud, Minnesota, company given temporary authority over Prince’s estate, took a drill to the vault because only Prince had the code, KSTP-TV reported.
“One day, someone will release them. I don’t know that I’ll get to release them,” Prince said back in 2012. “There’s just so many.”
The seven-time Grammy Award winner reportedly left behind a vault containing so much music his estate could put out an album a year for the next century.
“We could put out more work in a month than most people could do in a year or more,” Susan Rogers, Prince’s former recording engineer, told ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
Rogers added that the vault in Prince’s Paisley Park home was a giant room with shelves that filled up quickly. The door to the vault was sealed with a large spinning wheel.
