Prince’s massive Purple Rain vinyl reissue release is set to include a number of previously unheard tracks form the fabled Paisley Park vaults.

Released as both a Deluxe and Deluxe Expanded edition, Rolling Stone reports that the unheard material will include a 1983 solo version of ‘Possessed’, a studio version of ‘Electric Intercourse,’ a longer version of ‘Father’s Song,’ which only appeared in snippet-form in the album’s film, a full 10-minute version of ‘We Can Fuck,’ and a finished version of ‘Katrina’s Paper Dolls,’ previously only available in demo form.

The Purple Rain Deluxe release is born from the 2015 Paisley Park remaster of the soundtrack’s original tapes and is accompanied by a disc called From the Vault & Unreleased.

You can listen to the studio version of Electric Intercourse now and pre-order the reissues here.
