Prince’s Estate Releases Unheard Track ‘Moonbeam Levels’

By Amanda Wicks

When Prince passed away in April it was said he left behind a vault full of never-before-heard songs, and today fans can finally hear one of those. Prince’s estate released “Moonbeam Levels,” a cut intended for his 1999 album but which never made it.

The song debuted on ABC News, which chose to invite a handful of Prince superfans to New York’s Cutting Room studio where they all sat around and listened to “Moonbeam Levels” together.

The piano-heavy track also features a ripping guitar riff while Prince waxes poetic about life and death. “I’m looking for a better place to die,” he sings on the track, which was recorded in 1982. Besides this video debut, “Moonbeam Levels” appears on 4Ever, the two-disc greatest hits album his estate released today.
