A detailed internet archive showcasing many of Prince's official websites over the years has been launched.

Called the Prince Online Museum, it arrives precisely 10 years after the star closed his pioneering, award-winning digital NPG Music Club.

It contains 12 working versions of a dozen of more than 20 different websites Prince launched during his career.

Paying tribute to the late star, who passed away on April 21 from an opioid overdose, and his pioneering use of the internet to connect with his global fanbase during the noughties, it has also been launched with the aim of inspiring new artists to find ways to do the same.

"We launch with 12 of Prince's most popular sites, but over 20 years online, Prince launched nearly 20 different websites, maintained a dozen different social media presences, participated in countless online chats and directly connected with fans around the world," said the site's director Sam Jennings in a statement.
