Two new Prince albums to be released

NEW MUSIC: The late singer Prince

TWO NEW Prince albums will be released six months after the pop icon was found dead in his Minnesota mansion, Warner Bros Records has announced

A new greatest hits album and a deluxe edition of Purple Rain will feature unreleased songs from the star's "vault".

According to Warner Bros and Prince's NPG Records, plans for the album "were agreed with Prince before he passed away" in April.

One song, Moonbeam Levels, was recorded during sessions for the album 1999 but was not included on the final LP.

Details of the deluxe edition will be released at a later date, but they raise the prospect of an official release for songs like Electric Intercourse, Father's Song, All Day, All Night and Possessed, which have appeared on bootlegs from that era.

Full details will be revealed "early next year", a press release said.

The greatest hits collection will be the first new Prince release since his death from an overdose of painkillers.

Among its 40 tracks are some of the star's best-loved hits including When Doves Cry, Raspberry Beret, Little Red Corvette and Kiss.
