ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Warner Bros. Records is about to unveil two projects by the late megastar Prince that include previously unreleased material.

“Prince 4Ever” is a 40-song compilation of his biggest hits from his Warner Bros. days along with the previously unreleased song “Moonbeam Levels,” recorded in 1982. It’s due in stores Nov. 22 and will feature a booklet with new Prince photos shot by photographer Herb Ritts.

Warner Bros. also says the “Purple Rain” deluxe reissue will come early next year. It will feature a second album of unreleased songs.

Prince and Warner Bros. parted ways in 1996. Prince died April 21 of a drug overdose.
