Prince's Piano Inspires New Color

The Prince estate announced Monday the creation of a new shade of  purple inspired by the late music icon's custom-made purple Yamaha  piano.

Created by the Pantone Color Institute,  the global color authority, the custom color is intended to represent and honor Prince, who died in April 2016 at age 57.

The new hue, represented in color charts by Prince's famous “Love Symbol #2” icon, was inspired by his purple piano, which was scheduled to go on tour with the performer before his death.

The color pays tribute to Prince’s mark on music, art, fashion and culture, according to a press release from the Prince estate, established after his death to untangle his affairs, market his music and distribute his  wealth to his six sibling heirs.
