Heard the snippet now, the vocals are great... I'm glad the studio version is different, we still have the live version in pretty good quality - so two to choose from.

Hey loudmouth, shut the fuck up, right?

The now silver background behind the flowers is OK to make the Extended Edition slightly different, but why did they have to mess with the main photo?...


I noticed this as well. It's possible the silver gradient is there to indicate that the actual physical release will be foil-printed in that area. Seen it before.

It's pretty insane that this has managed to get this far without a new press release that specified the release date and announced the tracklist officially. A dedicated website to capture email addresses for a mailing list wouldn't have hurt, either. Something... Anything!

If they wanted to do Beyonce style guerrila tactics they should have just dropped the full digital release out of nowhere, with the physical to follow.

I don't doubt that they'll do some promotion, but letting this go live without officially announcing any info and then just waiting for us to find it, is pretty bizarre.




I work for a digital agency that works closely with labels and artists. Digital services routinely spoil announce plans because of the way their automated updates work, but its a risk you have to take if you want the first single available when the press release goes out.



I guarantee there will be a blast tomorrow to formally announce.

Ah, awesome. Which agency?

I did a release through Ingrooves a few years back, and I vaguely remember that it was tough to keep track of this kind of stuff. All the material was submitted at the same time, but certain services needed a much longer processing time.

That said, at the very least they ought to have publicly acknowledged the release by now, even a tweet wouldn't gone amiss.

Perhaps – but there's no excuse for rotating the main photo.

Probably I'm in the minority, but I strongly prefer the studio version of EL to the live version.

Finally an outtake long-waited that actually delivers the quality hoped.

To me it's an istant classic.

the whole song is available for 1,29 euros in the dutch itunes store now.

and it's glorious cool music

the whole thing is slightly off kilter compared to the live version and it's
gonna take some getting used to. but it's gorgeous. and after all, we've
already got the live version since forever.

soundquality is great on my headphones too nod

and true love lives on lollipops and crisps

A lot of voices and screams. It remember me the Controversy/1999 era more than the Purple Rain one.

A very nice tune, keyboard '80 vibe.

Yeah, this. My first impression is closer to "Umm yeah, I see why this was never released" rather than "Wow it's finally here."

Hopefully this version will grow on me.

Sounds like something that would fit more on 1999.

Quite apparently recorded entirely in the studio from scratch, and not a version that even partially retains the First Avenue live multitrack recording (unlike 'I Would Die 4 U')-- and likely to have been recorded before that performance previewed the song.

probably because it seems to be all prince by himself, with none of that revolution pr sauce
over the top of it.

whatever period it sounds like, it's gorgeous love
