ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Warner Bros. Records says it is about to unveil two projects by the late megastar Prince that include previously unreleased material.
"Prince 4Ever" is a 40-song compilation of his biggest hits from his Warner Bros. days along with two previously unreleased songs: "Batdance" and "Moonbeam Levels." It's due in stores Nov. 22 and will feature a booklet with new Prince photos shot by photographer Herb Ritts.
Warner Bros. also says the "Purple Rain" deluxe reissue will come early next year. It will feature a second album of unreleased songs.
Prince and Warner Bros. parted ways in 1996.
