Prince passed away at his home back in April. Now NPG Records and Warner Bros. Records have announced a deluxe reissue of his 1984 stone-cold all-time classic Purple Rain for a 2017 release and a new best of for release on November 22. The Purple Rain reissue will come with an extra disc of previously unreleased tracks and the best of, which is entitled Prince 4Ever, will include the previously unreleased song “Moonbeam Levels.” “Moonbeam Levels” was recorded in 1982 during the 1999 sessions. It was later considered for the never released Rave Unto The Joy Fantastic album. Prince 4Ever will also include a 12-page booklet of never-before-seen photos by photographer Herb Ritts. The tracklist of the compilation is below. The Purple Rain reissue doesn’t have an exact release date, but is promised for early 2017. Plans for the reissue were put into motion with Prince before he passed away. Considering that Prince’s music vault reportedly contains enough unreleased music to release a new album every year for the next 100 years we can probably expect a lot more Prince reissues and unreleased tracks in the future.
