Another stashed gem from the vault.

The Prince Estate has released another previously unheard 1999 era outtake.

PLAYLIST: The Round-Up: Best Songs of The Week – ft. Frank Ocean, Prince, ROSALÍA, and More

Sleek and sophisticated, “Don’t Let Him Fool Ya” peels the curtain back on a period of unmatched prolificity and heated rivalries, culled from Prince’s contentious early-80s onslaught, during which the late icon was simultaneously writing material for The Time’s sophomore album, Vanity 6’s debut, and his own fifth studio album. It arrives ahead of a deluxe 6-disc/10xLP edition of 1999, featuring the full contents of The Vault bootleg series and two previously-unreleased live shows, circa 1982, one of which will be officially released on DVD for the first time ever.
