Ahead of a much-anticipated reissue of Prince‘s masterpiece album Purple Rain, a new track from the late star has surfaced on streaming services.
Ninety seconds of the track, titled Father’s Song, was originally heard in a scene in Prince’s film of the same name. The movie was loosely based on Prince’s life.
Purple Rain will be re-released on June 23rd, featuring two discs. One disc contains 11 previously unreleased songs, two of which have surfaced in recent weeks, Electric Intercourse and Our Destiny/Roadhouse Garden.
You can hear the original version of the song here. Happy Father’s Day!
