But thanks to the wealth of riches hidden away in his legendary underground vault, we're still getting to hear new and previously unreleased Prince material, and it doesn't seem like the faucet is turning off any time soon.

Prince fans got a little taste of the artist's royal badness just a few days before the two-year anniversary of his death. Warner Bros. has released Prince's 1984 studio recording of "Nothing Compares 2 U", a song later recorded by the Prince-assembled group the Family, and that became a 1990 hit for Sinead O'Connor. In summer 1984, Prince was working in the Flying Cloud Drive Warehouse - his huge rehearsal space before creating Paisley Park - and was on "a creative roll, cranking out a song a day". And now that version has finally been unearthed.

Michael Howe, A&R executive and the Prince's Estate official Vault Archivist, recalls his reaction upon finding the recording. "Even our "faders up" rough mix was compelling enough to indicate that this was something very special indeed", Michael Howe, a label/A&R veteran who is now serving as the official archivist for the Prince collection. The track features backing vocals by Susannah Melvoin and Paul "St. Paul" Peterson, as well as saxophone from Eric Leeds.

It's been nearly two years since Prince was taken away, and while we can go out every night and sleep all day, fans of the artist can now hear the original version of "Nothing Compares 2 U", which was discovered in his Paisley Park underground bank vault, according to Variety.

George Ian Boxill worked with Prince on five tracks in 2006, and he made at least one song from the recording sessions, "Deliverance", which was made available for online sales. "There is also no evidence to suggest any other sinister motive, intent or conspiracy to murder Prince", attorney Mark Metz said.

The singer died of a fentanyl overdose after taking counterfeit Vicodin pills that were laced with the deadly drug.

Prince was found unresponsive in his Paisley Park estate on April 21 in 2016. Where O'Connor's version is quiet and ghostly, Prince's is a reserved rock ballad.
