Prince’s estate releases 1979 version of ‘I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man’
Prince’s estate has released a special 1979 version of The Purple One’s track ‘I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man’.
The song, written and recorded by Prince, was first released as a single from his ninth studio album Sign o’ the Times which was shared a year earlier in 1979.
Featuring a combination of drum machines and two epic guitar solos, ‘I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man’ has built up a reputation as one of Prince’s most loved tracks and has been covered by a number of different artists such as The Goo Goo Dolls, Fruit Bats and more.
“The new Sign O’ The Times expanded reissue will be available September 25 via all physical, digital and streaming partners, with the classic album remastered for the first time,” Prince’s estate said when releasing the new demo track. “The Super Deluxe edition features 63 previously unreleased tracks and a 2+ hour concert video.”
