Prince’s Paisley Park Releases Two Rare Tracks From the Vault
Prince’s Paisley Park unveiled two previously unreleased tracks — “All A Share Together Now” (recorded on September 4, 2006) and “7 (E Flat Version)” (recorded on August 9, 1992) — today (July 7) from the legendary Prince Vault on digital service providers worldwide.
“7 (E Flat Version)” is an unreleased remix of Prince’s song “7”, which initially appeared on his Love Symbol album. “All A Share Together Now” has never previously been released in any form.
Paisley Park also announced that more tracks are set to arrive in August.
The two recordings were previewed last month at Paisley Park’s Celebration 2023, where attendees were gifted the tracks on special cassette-shaped USB keys. The two Vault releases are now available to all Prince fans worldwide for the first time, as part of an emerging Prince Vault Series and as a followup to Celebration 2023.
The 7th annual Celebration 2023, held at Paisey Park, gave Prince lovers from around the world a chance to celebrate and honor Prince’s life on what would have been his 65th birthday, also marking the 7th year since his passing. Throughout the June 8-11 gathering, Paisley Park hosted exclusive presentations of unreleased music from the famous Prince Vault and special appearances by and conversations with Grammy-winning artist Chaka Khan and hip hop legends Chuck D and Doug E. Fresh.
Guests were also treated to live performances from powerhouse Minnesota super group Sounds of Blackness; R&B star Stokley of Mint Condition; artist, DJ, and producer D-Nice; members of Prince’s band, New Power Generation (NPG); Prince protégé Shelby J; Minneapolis youth choir Known MPLS; and an exciting showcase of new artists Nunnabove and Nur-D. Supporting young and developing artists was extremely important to Prince, and remains one of Paisley Park’s missions.
Celebration 2023 included a special Prince Legacy Tribute to one of the founding members of NPG—the beloved vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Rosie Gaines, with honors accepted by her daughter and grandson. The event also honored both Prince and Tina Turner in a unique tribute led by Prince’s longtime DJ and collaborator DJ Rashida.
