Two months after Prince’s death, previously unreleased music from the singer has debuted. An 11-minute mix of never-before-heard work from Prince played during the Versace show at Milan Fashion Week on June 20, and you can hear it for yourself right here.
Prince may be gone, but his music will live on forever. He had hours and hours of music in his vault before his untimely death on April 21, and thanks to Donatella Versace, we’re now getting to hear a very small piece of it. Listen right
The 11 and a half minute mix was played during the Versace Men’s Spring/Summer 2017 show at Milan Fashion Week. The designer was good friends with Prince, and says he used to send her his music “all the time,” according to TMZ. The music is very similar to what we’re used to hearing from the legendary singer, and it totally brings out all the emotions.
Prince was found unconscious in an elevator at his Paisley Park estate on April 21, and it was confirmed on June 2 that he died of an accidental opioid overdose. The singer’s autopsy report listed the cause of death as a “Fentanyl toxicity.”
Shockingly, the man who discovered Prince’s unconscious body, was actually at Paisley Park to rescue the singer from his drug problem. The addiction specialist was flown in by Prince’s people as part of a “livesaving mission,” and the plan was for the 56-year-old to head to California for treatment after his condition was evaluated.
Sadly, the livesaving mission could not be completed, because the specialist, along with two other men, found Prince unresponsive before any progress could be made. The whole situation is so eerie and sad, but we’re so glad to have more new music to remember the late icon by now.
