Hear Prince’s Previously Unreleased 1982 Track ‘Moonbeam Levels’ (Audio)

Song from ”1999“ sessions released as part of posthumous compilation ”Prince 4Ever“

More than six months after his death, Prince isn’t done giving the world new music. Or at least new/old music.

A previously unreleased track by the Purple One, “Moonbeam Levels,” finally saw the light of day on Tuesday.

The track, recorded in 1982 as part of the sessions for the music icon’s landmark album “1999,” is included on the newly released compilation album “Prince 4Ever,” out Tuesday.

The 40-track compilation, released by Warner Bros. and NPG Records, also includes hits such as “Little Red Corvette” and “Purple Rain.”

ABC News streamed the track Tuesday morning during a listening party at New York City studio The Cutting Room.

Prince, who died in April at age 57 of an overdose on the opioid Fentanyl, reportedly recorded thousands of hours of unreleased music prior to his death at his Paisley Park home in Minnesota.

“Moonbeam Levels” is the first posthumous track to be released after the singer’s death, but it no doubt won’t be the last. Earlier this month, Universal Music Publishing Group announced that it would serve as the worldwide publishing administrator for Prince’s entire song catalog, working with the performer’s estate “to develop new creative outlets for his music.”

In the meantime, get an earful of “Moonbeam Levels” in the video below.
