Prince’s Estate to Release Expanded Version of ‘1999’

By N. Jamiyla Chisholm Sep 11, 2019

After more than 40 years of recording hundreds of songs and dozens of genre-smashing records, it’s no surprise that even after his death, Prince still has more music to share with fans. The next project is an expansive new edition of the groundbreaking “1999” album, Variety reported on Tuesday (September 10).

The package, which will be released via Rhino/Warner Records on November 29, 2019, will be available via five CDs or 10 vinyl albums packaged with a DVD, all of which include remixes, dozens of B-sides, 35 previously unreleased outtakes and two concerts from the 1982 tour in Detroit and Houston. The booklet also reportedly includes liner notes, rare photos and several lyrics that were handwritten by Prince.

All of this comes after Prince’s estate already released an expanded deluxe edition of “Purple Rain,” “Piano & a Microphone 1983” and the “Originals” collection. Visit Rhino’s site for the complete playlist.
