Prince fans will continue to celebrate the legacy of Prince as roughly one week after the official Prince tribute concert comes news that two new releases are on their way.

Via usatoday:

Warner Bros. and NPG Records announced Friday that they will premiere Prince4Ever, a collection of 40 of Prince’s greatest hits, in the U.S. on Nov. 22 (the record will be available worldwide on Nov. 25). The compilation, which includes classic tracks such as When Doves Cry, Kiss, Little Red Corvette, Purple Rain and Raspberry Beret, will also contain a previously unreleased track, Moonbeam Levels. The song was originally recorded in 1982 as part of the sessions for 1999. It will also include a 12-page booklet featuring never-seen-before photos shot by legendary photographer Herb Ritts.

Prince4Ever will be followed by a deluxe, remastered edition of Purple Rain — the original soundtrack to his 1984 film of the same name — to be released in early 2017. That edition will be accompanied by a second album of previously unreleased material. The label says these plans were already underway and approved by Prince before he died on April 21.

The releases are a salute to fans’ enduring love for Prince’s catalog. The chameleonic artist’s sales soared following his death, with fans snapping up over 2.8 million digital songs and 650,000 albums in the first week alone.
