Previously unreleased ‘Purple Rain’ era Prince track ‘Electric Intercourse’ unveiled

Check out the deluxe vinyl reissue of the classic 'Purple Rain'

A previously unreleased Prince track has been unveiled – taken from the upcoming deluxe vinyl reissue of his classic album ‘Purple Rain’.

‘His Royal Badness’ released his sixth album in 1984. Backed by The Revolution and married to a film of the same name, it would quickly gain seminal status – featuring the likes of ‘Let’s Go Crazy’,  ‘When Doves Cry’, ‘I Would Die 4 U’, and of course the title track.

The album is being reissued on June 23 on a variety of formats – including double and triple CD, 180g vinyl and a live DVD. One of the CDs features 11 rare or previously unreleased tracks – including ‘Electric Intercourse’; a simmering and sexual dose of classic Prince. Check it out below.
