Never-Before-Heard Prince Song, ‘Moonbeam Levels,’ Released
Prince’s Paisley Park estate has officially released the first new song since the singer passed away in April — “Moonbeam Levels.”
An uplifting piano and guitar number, “Moonbeam Levels” was originally recorded in 1982 during the sessions for Prince’s iconic 1999 album. Later, the track was also considered for the never released album, “Rave Unto The Joy Fantastic.”
“Moonbeam Levels” is included on a new 40-track greatest-hits collection, “Prince 4Eever,” which features the track, and brings together the iconic artist’s best-loved songs — including top hits “Kiss,” “Little Red Corvette,” “Purple Rain” and more.
Along with the new song, the album includes a booklet of never-before-seen photos of the “Purple Rain” singer taken by acclaimed photographer Herb Ritts.
ABC News held a live listening party of the new song for a group of his fans at the Cutting Room recording studio in New York City.
While many fans have eagerly awaited new music from the late singer since the icon’s untimely death earlier this year, the legal battle over Prince’s estimated $300 million estate continues.
