makes me regret having listened to the bootleg of it.


Me too but on the other hand there was no guarantee it would ever get an official release. I'm glad the original version is released, it really deserves more attention smile

It's out 25th May so no need to buy an awful t-shit and 7inch for the rip-off price of $50!


lol


No. It says the "black vinyl" version will be out May 25. Not the picture disc.

Yes you are right!

Anyone daft enough to buy it with an awful t-shirt have to wait until 29th June!

They’ve really done well with remastering that footage as well, getting rid of interlace lines, making the colors and contrast solid.

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

The intro always reminded me a bit of Imagine by John Lennon.

Although it's nice, I hate to say it but always felt he made the right decision giving it to Sinead, she added so much more poignancy and emotional impact to it I felt. I think he was good at knowing when to give his stuff away to someone that could make it even better (think Chaka and her far superior version of I Feel 4 U).

Great version of the song. Also glad that the estate started their website. Interesting to see some of the review quotes there. Hopefully one day this is where they can post new releases to buy as well as more news of what is in the works.

0% facts, 100% opinion. The "fact" that I agree with the opinion doesn't change that.

Good Lord. Some might read this and think I'm being hyperbolic, but everytime I hear something from Prince that I haven't heard before, I start to believe that there is a God. Just pondering the breadth and depth of Prince's talents is simply an overwhelming thought process. Therefore, even as an atheist, I have almost come to the conclusion, the belief, that there is indeed a God. How else can this man have everything he had, and then some? He was put here to give us this music, period, end of story.

I've heard every version of this song that there is, but Prince...his voice puts it it on a level that other versions cannot even begin to touch. I'm seperated right now; maybe that's why this is getting to me. But I've almost lost it a few times today listening to it. All I can think about is how perfectly the lyrics and delivery mirror what I was thinking. And the kicker is, I thought I was over it, but when I heard this, all of the emotions that I thought I finally rid myself of, everything that I did to try to forget, was all for naught, because at the end of the day, they are still there, and no amount of trying can make me feel otherwise for the person that this song made me think of.

Anyone else notice the dove fly across the reflection in his glasses at about 2:55?

It's highly unlikely that he had doves flying and crapping around the warehouse, and that they could be captured so artistically, so it indicates footage from a finished video.

I did... I think you're deff on to something... But I feel this was added digitally to the video recently for this release, rather filmed like that back in the 80's...

Is that a prototype cloud guitar sitting on the guitar stand? It doesn't look quite the same.

Y'all don't remember what this rehearsal video really is?

It's the Purple Rain rehearsals filmed by Big Chick, that were being offered on eBay in late 2016. The video has nothing to do with the song, but it's fun watching it.

This may be the release that SNJ tried to stop as "embarrassing".

Welcome to "the org", laytonian… come bathe with me.

Also available on a limited vinyl release:

The Prince Estate And Warner Bros. Records release original version of ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’

New York, NY – April 19, 2018 — The Prince Estate, in collaboration with Warner Bros. Records, has now released the original version of the iconic song “Nothing Compares 2 U”. This previously unreleased version was recorded in 1984, six years before 1990’s classic reimagining by Sinéad O’Connor and before Prince started performing the song live. The track was recorded at the Flying Cloud Drive ‘Warehouse’ in Eden Prairie by Prince’s long-time engineer Susan Rogers, and originally composed, arranged and performed in its entirety by Prince, aside from the backing vocals by Susannah Melvoin and Paul “St. Paul” Peterson. Also featured on the original track is saxophone work by Eric Leeds. The new version of the song will be available to stream, to purchase via digital retailers and as two 7″ vinyl singles (in picture disk and standard black vinyl formats).

As remembered by Michael Howe, long-time industry A&R executive, Prince expert, and the Prince Estate’s official Vault Archivist, “I spotted the 2″ multitrack reel in the Vault some weeks back while doing a 1984-era inventory. After retrieving my jaw from the floor, we took the reel upstairs, analyzed it, put it up on the Studer 24 track machine, and digitized it to 24/192. Even our ‘faders up’ rough mix was compelling enough to indicate that this was something very special indeed.”

Howe continued, “No Prince-penned song performed by another artist has enjoyed more chart success (#1 in 20+ countries) and overall cultural impact than Sinead O’Connor’s 1990 recording, so hearing the song in its original context performed in its entirety by the author makes it particularly noteworthy.”

The song is accompanied by a video featuring never before seen rehearsal footage of Prince & The Revolution practicing their choreography in that same Eden Prairie warehouse during the same summer of 1984. Captured for Prince as a part of his rehearsal process, the footage is presented for the very first time in a video directed by Andrea Gelardin and Ruth Hogben. The video offers a glimpse into Prince’s total commitment to his art and its emotional impact, even when no audience is present. Watch the video HERE.

After the successful launch of the Prince HitNRun online pop-up store last November, the Prince Estate is bringing back the concept (www.PrinceHitNRun.com), where the limited edition, picture disk vinyl will be sold exclusively. In addition to the limited edition picture disk vinyl, fans will also be able to purchase a variety of official Prince merchandise, including pieces that draw from his iconic Dirty Mind and Lovesexy eras. The black vinyl 7″ will be available for pre-order from major physical retailers and will be released on Friday 25th May.

The Prince Estate has also launched a new site for fans to showcase what Prince means to them. Prince2Me (www.Prince2Me.com) is an interactive fan experience that explores what Prince means, individually and collectively to his fans. The Prince Estate has also announced that this will be the first of many online experiences to come, each will shine a new light on his artistry. When fans visit the Prince2Me site they will be able to craft their own message using Prince vocabulary, an array of images and videos provided by the Estate. Once a fan creates their desired message they can share their post across social media and spark the conversation of who Prince is to them. Fans who use Twitter to share their Prince2Me messages using #Prince2Me or #NothingCompares2U will be able to activate an exclusive Prince Love Symbol Twitter emoji:

In addition to the Prince2Me site, the Estate has launched an immersive annotated discography website highlighting the incomparable breadth and depth of Prince’s recorded catalogue. Featuring audio previews, photos, videos, quotes and editorial commentary, the discography site provides a rich platform for fans old and new to immerse themselves in the creative genius of Prince . Visit the discography website here:www.princeestate.com.

The Prince Estate serves to present Prince’s life and work, and celebrate his ground-breaking cultural impact.

This release caught me by surprise, love it, Prince in his prime dedicated to his art, doing what he does best, in color no less, have watched and listened to it multiple times already and at the same time it also makes me feel sad ... I miss his presence here on earth for the rest of my life.
