NPG Records and Warner Bros. Records announce the 2017 release of Prince’s Academy Award® and GRAMMY Award®-winning, RIAA diamond-certified masterpiece Purple Rain in new Deluxe and Deluxe – Expanded Edition formats on June 23, 2017.

 

The two-CD Purple Rain Deluxe set includes the official 2015 Paisley Park Remaster of the original tapes from the soundtrack, presenting an unheard vision of the album overseen by Prince himself.  The From The Vault & Unreleased disc boasts eleven gems unearthed from the heart of Prince’s storied vault.  Beyond “Electric Intercourse,” the tracklist features much sought-after rarities such as 1984’s “Our Destiny / Roadhouse Garden,” the 1983 instrumental “Father’s Song” and more.

Six tracks that have never been released or distributed in the collector or bootleg community include: “Possessed” – the ’83 Prince solo version, never heard before; “Electric Intercourse”- the studio version not known to exist before it was discovered at Paisley Park; “Father’s Song” – a full, five plus minute version that prior to this fans could only find a minute and half snippet of in the movie; “We Can Fuck” – a track that has never circulated as the full, 10 minute version with these lyrics; and “Katrina’s Paper Dolls” – a finished master of the song, which has previously only circulated as a demo. Additionally, all of the material is taken from the source and mastered by Bernie Grundman, the mastering engineer who worked on the original album.

 

In addition to the Original Album (2015 Paisley Park Remaster)and From The Vault & Unreleased, the Purple Rain Deluxe – Expanded Edition presents a third disc of Single Edits & B-Sides, as well as the concert DVD Prince And The Revolution Live at the Carrier Dome, Syracuse, NY, March 30, 1985.  With audio and video restored from the original production master tape, it offers an exclusive vignette into the passion and power of Prince’s legendary live performances during one of the artist’s most celebrated eras.
