Prince’s estate drops unheard acoustic demo ‘I Feel For You’

0

Prince’s estate drops previously unheard acoustic demo of hit song ‘I Feel For You’ The release honours the 40th anniversary of the singer’s self-titled second album

The full version of the song originally appeared on Prince, which was released on October 19, 1979, and was later made famous by Chaka Khan, as the title track of her 1984 album. It featured rapper Melle Mel and became a Top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100

According with Rolling Stone, Tidal and the Prince estate announced Friday that, after a lengthy legal battle, the streaming service will debut a new and unreleased Prince album. Due out in 2019, the album will feature a collection of previously unreleased music from Prince’s legendary Vault.

 

Prince’s breakthrough into the mainstream will get a new reassessment this year when 1999, the blockbuster 1982 album that contained the hits “1999” and “Little Red Corvette,” comes out as a souped-up, remastered reissue on November 29th. The massive super-deluxe edition of the reissue contains five CDs and a DVD (or 10 LPs and a DVD) with 35 previously unreleased audio tracks and a full concert film that was previously unofficially circulated. The singer’s estate is also issuing pared-down versions of the reissue, including a two-CD (or four-LP) “Deluxe Edition” and a single-CD (or two-LP) basic edition.
