The list of bonus tracks for the much-anticipated deluxe reissue of Prince’s Purple Rain album has been leaked just seven weeks before its June 9 release date. And it wasn’t an easy task, according to Variety which revealed the extras on Wednesday.
The Violet Reality, a collective devoted to all things Prince, was tipped off that the songs had been registered and tracked down the International Standard Recording Codes. The three-disc package is thought to include the original 1984 album plus a second disc with extended versions and B-sides from the five singles released from the album. The extended versions have long been out of circulation.
The third disc is one that the fans have been waiting for. It is said to contain a lot of previously unreleased material from the era. Many of those songs have long been available on bootlegs or were given to other artists by Prince, but many more were not, per Variety.
