After a Minnesota judge blocked the released of Prince’s posthumous EP, it looks like fans are getting their silver (er, purple?) lining. 

On Friday, NPG and Warner Bros. Records announced Prince’s iconic “Purple Rain” will be reissued June 23 with six previously unreleased tracks. Among them are remastered versions of “Possessed” and “Electric Intercourse,” the latter of which was just released on Spotify

NPG and Warner said Prince had worked on remastering the songs himself the year before his death, according to USA Today. 

The reissue, which will be available for preorder starting Friday, will also include an extended edition that comes with a full disc of B-sides and a DVD with a performance by Prince and the Revolution from 1985, USA Today reports. 

Just last week, producer and writer George Ian Boxill, who worked on new songs with Prince before his death, announced the release of a six-song EP titled “Deliverance.” Prince’s estate, however, promptly filed a lawsuit against Boxill for violating a confidentiality agreement and organizing the unauthorized sale of new music. A judge granted a temporary restraining order in the estate’s favor.

As of right now, the EP’s title track still appears to be available for purchase if you’re in the U.S., though the pre-order option for the EP has been removed.
