NPG Records, in collaboration with Prince’s Paisley Park, has made a significant announcement today. Two previously unreleased tracks from the legendary Prince Vault, titled “All A Share Together Now” and “7 (E Flat Version),” are now available on digital service providers worldwide. “7 (E Flat Version)” is an unreleased remix of Prince’s song “7,” while “All A Share Together Now” has never been released before.
These tracks were initially previewed at Paisley Park’s Celebration 2023 event last month, where attendees were gifted the songs on special cassette-shaped USB keys. Now, fans of Prince worldwide can access and enjoy these vault releases as part of an emerging Prince Vault Series.
The 7th annual Celebration 2023 was a tremendous success, featuring star-studded programming, captivating performances, and enlightening panels.
