Warner Bros have announced their intentions to release a remastered, deluxe edition of Prince’s classic album, Purple Rain, in early 2017. Plans for the reissue were made with Prince before he passed away and were agreed upon by the artist himself. According to a press release the album will include “A second album of previously unreleased material.” But there are no exact details of what we can expect.
