Listen to previously unreleased Prince track ‘Born 2 Die’

Prince‘s estate has shared ‘Born 2 Die’, an unreleased track from the music icon.

The new offering features on ‘Welcome 2 America’, a record previously shelved by the singer after he completed it in 2010.

The track was recorded as a direct rebuke to Dr. Cornel West, who said the singer was “no Curtis Mayfield”, according to Prince’s musical director Morris Hayes.

‘Welcome 2 America’, meanwhile, will arrive on July 30 via legacy and marks the first  complete studio LP to emerge from Prince’s vault since he died.

The title track arrived earlier this year and you can listen to it here.

Performers on ‘Born 2 Die’ include bassist Tal Wilkenfeld, drummer Chris Coleman, and the vocal harmonies of Shelby J., Liv Warfield, and Elisa Fiorillo.

The deluxe boxset version of the new album is set to feature the regular 12-track record on vinyl and CD, alongside a previously unreleased full-length concert film from Prince’s show at The Forum in Inglewood, California on April 28, 2011.
