Prince's Unreleased 'Why The Butterflies' Just Dropped And It's A Must-Hear

Prince fans around the world are in celebration! At long last, Piano & A Microphone 1983, "a collection of demos and unreleased tracks that Prince recorded at his home studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota," is going to see public release. Leading up to its September 21 drop, the Prince Estate and Warner Bros. Records have released Prince's never-before-heard single "Why the Butterflies," to build some hype...and it's essential listening for anyone and everyone!



The track, which features a distinctly bluesy feel, is one of three tracks seeing the light of day for the first time on the new album. The other two are "Wednesday" and "Cold Coffee & Cocaine," which fans are eager to hear for real after imagining them for so long.

Piano & A Microphone 1983 will also include the previously released songs "17 Days" and "Mary Don't You Weep," (the latter of which appeared in Spike Lee's newest film, BlacKkKlansman).

The internet was, and always will be, in awe of Prince's work:







If Prince's estate intended to rile up his fan base for the big release, they definitely succeeded!







Prince may have passed, but his music is immortal.
