Prince’s iconic Purple Rain album is getting a jam-packed rerelease.

NPG Records and Warner Bros. have announced the official plans for Purple Rain Deluxe and Purple Rain Deluxe – Expanded Edition. Releasing June 23, the special collection will feature never before released tracks, including extended or newly mastered versions of “Possessed,” “Electric Intercourse,” “Father’s Song,” “We Can F—,” and “Katrina’s Paper Dolls.”

Available for pre-order beginning Friday, the two-CD Purple Rain Deluxe consists of a remaster of the original album overseen by Prince in 2015 and From The Vault & Unreleased, which includes 11 songs discovered in the late singer’s vault.

The expanded edition of the re-release comes with the aforementioned material, plus a disc of Single Edits & B-Sides, as well as a concert DVD of Prince performing live in Syracuse, NY in 1985.

News of Purple Rain‘s update comes on the heels of a federal court blocking the release of Deliverance, an album solely of unreleased tracks.

Purple Rain served as the soundtrack for the 1984 musical film of the same name starring the musician, and has been deemed one of the greatest albums of all-time, landing at No. 2 on EW’s list.
