Prince's Estate Release Original Version of 'Nothing Compares 2 U'
For the first time ever, Prince's estate released his original 1984 version of "Nothing Compares 2 U" which he wrote and recorded but never put out on his own. In 1985, the song was released by The Family, a Prince-formed and sanctioned band, then in 1990 the song exploded thanks to Sinéad O’Connor. Take a look and listen to the "Purple One" and The Revolution playing the song along with rehearsal footage which has also been unearthed for the first time.
