The latest unreleased Prince song to surface,, the Prince Estate and Warner Bros. Records have officially released “Why The Butterflies.” This latest track will stand as one of three previously-unreleased “new” songs on the forthcoming Prince album Piano & A Microphone 1983. The other two records are “Cold Coffee & Cocaine” and “Wednesday,” which were also recorded along with “Why The Butterflies” at Prince’s home studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota. Notably, “Why The Butterflies” is also being billed as a “sketch of a song,” as opposed to a fully-formed composition.

You can stream Prince’s “Why The Butterflies” below, while Piano & A Microphone 1983 is scheduled to hit streaming services and retailers on Friday, September 21.

Earlier this week, Pharrell Williams revealed that “Frontin” was originally written for Prince.
