More details on Prince 4EVER


Seven tracks new to CD

Despite being targeted firmly at the casual fan, the new Prince 4EVER compilation (due next month) will contain a number of well-known tracks in variants that have never before been issued on CD, according to Warners.

Twenty-two out of the 40 tracks on Prince 4EVER are single edits, as follows:

  • 1999 3.36
  • Little Red Corvette* 3.08
  • When Doves Cry 3.49
  • Let’s Go Crazy* 3.46
  • I Wanna Be Your Lover 2.57
  • Soft And Wet 3.01
  • Uptown 4.09
  • Controversy 3.35
  • Let’s Work* 2.56
  • Delirious 2.36
  • I Would Die 4 U 2.57
  • Take Me With U* 3.39
  • Sign ‘O’ The Times 3.44
  • Alphabet St.* 2.25
  • Batdance 4.06
  • Girls And Boys* 3.27
  • If I Was Your Girlfriend 3.46
  • I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man (fade) 3.39
  • Glam Slam* 3.28
  • Diamonds And Pearls 4.20
  • Gett Off (single remix) 3.59
  • 7 (Album Edit) 4.23

Warners are claiming that the tracks marked in bold and with an asterisk are “previously unavailable on CD” although labels are notoriously unreliable with information like this, so SDE readers can confirm if this is indeed the case!

Other points of interest include the fact that Nothing Compares 2 U is identical to the version on The Hits/The B-Sides and that Diamonds And Pearls wasn’t edited for the single in the UK, therefore the US 4.20 single edit must be what is being used. Of course as well as this Moonbeam Levels is included which is completely unreleased.

4EVER will be released on 25 November (22 Nov in the US). The full track listing is below.
