By , RADIO.COM

Just a few days after the announcement that a Prince book written by the pop icon himself would be released soon, we now have even more incredible news about the “Purple Rain” singer.

The Prince estate just revealed that Originals is coming this summer, a 15-track LP filled with previously unreleased songs. The posthumous work is due June 21st and will include his “Vault” recordings.

A collection of tracks recorded from 1981 through 1991 includes many songs that went on to become hits for other artists. With hits written by Prince but made popular by artists such as Kenny Rogers and The Bangles, the unreleased versions will have plenty of familiarities. Even after giving monster hits like “Nothing Compares 2 U” and “Manic Monday” away to other artists, Prince's prolific catalog has never lacked in chart-toppers under his own name. 

Originals follows a number of posthumous albums released after the singer’s April 21, 2016 death in his beloved Paisley Park. Pre-order the album here and get the full tracklist of the songs' original versions below.
