Unreleased Songs




Definition


The following list includes all unreleased songs known to have been written by Prince in the studio regardless of credits registered at the Library Of Congress. Prince has a penchant for recording music without necessarily plans for release, and little is known about the exact amount of songs recorded, although a few figures have circulated in the press. This enormous unreleased catalog of songs is stored in a huge safe vault in Paisley Park Studios.

Recording information on unreleased songs is not always available, or not accurate enough to state a specific year of recording. In this case, the year will be followed by a *.

This list purposely doesn't include unreleased songs known to contain a Prince participation as a musician and/or producer. Unreleased studio cover of another artists song by Prince are not included either: these categories of songs are not reputed as having being written or co-written by Prince and therefore are not entitled to belong this category. You will find a list of these songs in our Contribution and Cover songs page.
