Prince’s Expanded ‘Purple Rain’ Tracklist Reportedly Revealed

Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.

The long wait for a remastered and expanded edition of Prince‘s classic Purple Rain LP seems to be nearing its end — and if a rumored track listing is correct, fans can expect a wealth of previously unreleased bonus material.

The Current has rounded up the details circulating regarding the set, which has been expected since Prince returned to Warner Bros. with a 2014 deal that granted him ownership of his masters in exchange for licensing a series of catalog reissues. The deluxe edition will reportedly be a triple-disc affair, with the original LP — freshly remastered by respected engineer Bernie Grundman — bolstered by an assortment of edits, extended mixes, and songs pulled from Prince’s legendary vault.

That last disc will obviously be of most interest to hardcore fans and collectors, and sources suggest its contents won’t disappoint. As evidenced by the track listing assembled below, the deluxe Purple Rain offers the first official release — or, in some cases, public debut — of material that’s been hidden away for years. According to Variety, plans also call for the package to include a pair of concert films from the era. Although the release date is reportedly still in flux, the most recent official word suggests a June 9 arrival for the set.
