Prince may be gone, but his music might not. Rumors of a secret vault filled with unreleased songs at his home in Paisley Park have been going around. According to ABC News, Prince left behind enough music that could produce an album a year for the next century.

The vault was drilled open by Bremer Trust, which has temporary authority of Prince’s estate. Susan Rogers, Prince’s former recording engineer, described a large room with shelves of music, sealed with a large spinning wheel.

Prince spoke about his music stock back in 2012 on The View, saying, “One day, someone will release them. I don’t know that I’ll get to release them.” A sad fact we now know to be true.

No will has been found for Prince. As a result, his estate will be divided between his sister, Tyka Nelson, and his five half-siblings. Prince died on April 21, at the age of 57.
