Prince's estate marked what would have been The Purple One's 60th birthday on Thursday by announcing his first posthumous album, Piano and a Microphone 1983. Consequence of Sound notes that the nine-track LP, which drops on September 21, will feature "raw tracks Prince recorded to cassette at his Kiowa Trail home studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota, using nothing but a piano and a mic" and that the project "mirrors his final Piano & A Microphone Tour from 2016."

The track list includes early versions of such Prince classics as Purple Rain and Strange Relationship, as well as a cover of the Joni Mitchell classic A Case of You and a recording of Mary Don't You Weep, a 19th-century spiritual.
