The Prince Estate has unveiled a massive super deluxe reissue for 1987's Sign O' the Times, featuring 63 previously unreleased tracks and two complete concert recordings. 

The Super Deluxe Edition, available as an eight-CD or 13-LP set beginning September 25th, comes with the remastered LP, three discs of never-before-heard music from Prince's legendary vault, a disc of album’s single mixes, edits, and B sides, a full audio version of Prince’s 1987 concert in the Netherlands, and a DVD of Prince's 1987 New Year’s Eve benefit concert. 

The New Year’s Eve show, which also served as his final performance for Sign O' the Times, wraps with Prince’s only on-stage collaboration with Miles Davis in a performance of “It’s Gonna Be a Beautiful Night.” Among the previously unreleased tracks is his studio collaboration with Davis, “Can I Play With U?”.

The Super Deluxe Set also includes a 120-page hardcover book with handwritten lyrics, photos by Jeff Katz and liner notes by Dave Chappelle, Lenny Kravitz and others.

The Sign O' the Times reissue, available for pre-order now, ships out September 25 as a partnership between The Prince Estate and Warner Records. Pre-order the reissue here. The Prince Estate has also partnered with Third Man Records to release a limited edition seven-inch-vinyl boxed set, containing remastered audio for all four official seven-inch singles released in 1987 as well as the newly created single for the vault release "Witness 4 the Prosecution."
