Posthumous Prince albums to include unreleased music

Two new albums will feature previously unreleased and unheard tracks from the late singer Prince's vault of recordings.

Prince 4Ever, available in the United States on Nov 22, will feature Moonbeam Levels, originally recorded in 1982, Warner Bros Records and NPG Records said last Friday.

Early next year, a new remastered and remixed version of Prince's 1984 record Purple Rain, which he agreed with before his death, will be released, featuring old and new songs.

Miley Cyrus went door to door last Saturday at George Mason University in Northern Virginia. Katy Perry was scheduled to be at the University of Nevada Las Vegas to promote early voting.

Perry, along with stars including Jennifer Lopez, Jon Bon Jovi and the band The National, has also been enlisted to play concerts between now and Election Day with the goal of encouraging fans to vote for Mrs Clinton.
