An unreleased Prince track, titled ‘Father’s Song’, is available to listen to ahead of its release on the forthcoming Purple Rain reissue.

As Rolling Stone points out, a clip of the instrumental song can be heard in the film Purple Rain, but this is the first official release for the full five-and-a-half minute track.

The Purple Rain reissue lands on June 23 and will feature two discs, with one disc containing a deluxe version of the 1984 album, and another comprising 11 unreleased tracks.

‘Father’s Song’ follows the unveiling of previously unreleased Purple Rain reissue tracks ‘Electric Intercourse’ and ‘Our Destiny/Roadhouse Garden.’
