"Father's Song," an unreleased track that will be on Prince's Purple Rain reissue, can now be streamed via Spotify. The instrumental "Father's Song" can be heard in part in the Purple Rain film, but this marks the official release of the full five-and-a-half minutes.

A deluxe edition of the Grammy- and Oscar-winning 1984 album, featuring a bonus disc with 11 rare or previously unreleased tracks (including the Purple Rain-era "Father's Song"), is set for release on June 23.

Two- and three-disc versions of the release, one of which also includes the live concert film Prince and the Revolution Live!, will be available. The set can be pre-ordered here.
