Recorded in 1982, the unreleased track appears on Prince 4Ever.
Prince’s first posthumous release is here.
The track “Moonbeam Levels” appears on the compilation album Prince 4Ever and was unveiled for fans during ABC News‘ listening party at New York’s Cutting Room recording studio.
Recorded in 1982 during sessions for the late legend’s 1999, “Moonbeam Levels” has been covered by Elvis Costello and found on bootleg collections. The song is quintessential Prince: dreamy and full of feeling. It’s also a somber tune, with Prince singing, “Please send all your moonbeam levels to me, I’m looking for a better place to die.”
“Moonbeam Levels” comes alongside the recent release of Prince 4Ever; there are also plans for a reissue of Purple Rain and a second album that will include more unreleased music.
