Prince's Version of Nothing Compares 2 U is Released

I hope this doesn't sound messed up, but the one good thing that comes out of Prince's passing has been access to certain things. He was very secretive and limited access to work over the years. Not to say that he didn't have every right-this sexy mofo was (in my eyes) a genus and could do whatever he wanted with his music. Still, now that it's been almost two years since he passed away, we're finally getting his rendition of the song that made Sinead O'Connor a household name. I am down with this. 

Via the YouTube description:

The following is previously unseen rehearsal footage of Prince & The Revolution from the summer of 1984.  

It was in this very room at Flying Cloud Drive Warehouse in Eden Prairie, Minnesota that Prince created and committed to tape one of his most beloved and iconic compositions, which six years later would become a worldwide hit for Sinead O’Connor. 

Prince’s original studio version of ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ is presented here for the first time.
