I Feel For You (Acoustic Demo) 4:30

Anyone have any info on how this track just got out? It's amazing! smile
.
According to the info I got it's coming out TOMORROW (October 18) as a single, together with the album version, on Rhino/Warners.

.
The tape speed is totally off though, whomever transferred it from the original cassette didn't notice (or didn't care) that now it plays about 50 cents sharp (and faster) than it should. sad
Still, it's really funky and cool.
.


============================
STAFF NOTES BELOW

============================

The track is starting to appear on streaming services.

There are two cover artworks floating around, this is one of them, the other is the handwritten lyrics to the song:

i don't see the point at all why Rhino/WBR would release this song.....they already have a project ready 2 be released at the end of November 2019 (1999 DELUXE)....SO ...i think there is confusion from ur side !

Yes, I'm confused why this one just popped up, hence my question. But it did and it sure is funky.

Originals 2, perhaps? although it doesn't make any sense to release something from that (if it is
a thing, at all) now, since all attention should go to 1999 right now.

perhaps it's just a bootleg release? where did you hear it? and how sure is it that it will actually
be released on rhino/wb?

Could be a bootleg, yes. The info said Rhino but that could be wrong of course. We'll see.

I don't think the speed is off, but then again I'm not an expert on those things.

It's definitely faster compared to the original version.

Whether it's official or not, I love that we got this rare gem in pristine, true lossless quality.

It's not just the tempo is a bit too fast but the pitch is sharp too, so they simply didn't adjust the tape speed to normal pitch when they were transferring the original cassette.
But yeah, I love it, it's amazing (and the tape speed is an easy fix)!

He clearly says its a release from Rhino/Warner, not a bootleg.

I would love to know more about how/where he's come across this though...

I doubt it would be on Originals 2 because Chaka covered the released version.

Why? It was first released on the "Prince" album not Chaka's.

But the point of Originals is to hear songs that HE did not release but gave to others.

Welcome to "the org", laytonian… come bathe with me.

Because that's not how this song went. He gave the demo for IF4U to Patrice Rushen, not Chaka. Chaka covered the released version in 1984.

An acoustic demo in this context would be more appropriate on an expanded deluxe edition.

It's on the official YouTube now.

Doesn't sound off to me. It's a demo. Same thing with "Kiss" demo which is much slower than the released version.

Prince tuned his instruments to standard pitch (A=440Hz) and this tape plays sharp (and fast). This song is supposed to be in F#. There's nothing subjective or debatable about this.

it is neutral but it seems that it was actually on there, from the looks of the site, so this

It's pretty subjective given it sounds fine to my ears. But do you, sweetie.
