Purple rarities incoming.

Warner Bros has announced a new greatest hits album, Prince 4Ever, and a deluxe reissue of 1984’s classic Purple Rain. Both will feature unreleased tracks from Prince’s now-mythical vault.

The remastered version of Purple Rain will include a second album of previously unreleased material. As the BBC notes, tracks from that era which have only appeared on bootlegs since – ‘Electric Intercourse’, ‘Father’s Song’, ‘All Day, All Night’ ‘Possessed’ – are likely contenders for the pack. The reissue was “agreed [upon] with Prince before he passed away,” according to the press release. More details will be released at a later date.

Ahead of Purple Rain, the label will release the hits compilation Prince 4Ever next month. The collection will include best-known tracks – including ‘When Doves Cry’, ‘Raspberry Beret’, ‘Little Red Corvette’ and ‘Kiss’ – along with a previously unreleased one, titled ‘Moonbeam Levels’. Due on 22 November, find the tracklist below.
