The album comes in Deluxe and Deluxe – Expanded Edition versions. Both editions include the 11-track disc, From The Vault & Previously Unreleased, with six tracks that have never been released or distributed — even among collectors or bootleggers. These newly unearthed songs include a solo version of “Possessed” from 1983; a 10-minute version of “We Can Fuck” with alternate lyrics; a finished master of “Katrina’s Paper Doll”, previously only heard as a demo; and a full version of “Father’s Song”, an instrumental that appeared only briefly in the Purple Rain film. One of the new tracks, a studio version of “Electric Intercourse”, was only recently unearthed at Paisley Park.

Unlike the Deliverance EP which was blocked from release in the midst of legal drama, Prince approved plans to put out the reissue before his untimely passing.
