UMPG is honored to be exclusive worldwide publishing administrator for Prince’s entire song catalog. On Nov. 22, a new greatest hits compilation entitled Prince 4Ever was released by NPG Records/ Warner Bros. The album brings together 40 of PRINCE’s best-loved songs, including the hits “When Doves Cry,” “Let’s Go Crazy,” “Kiss,” “Little Red Corvette,” “Purple Rain,” “Raspberry Beret,” “Sign O’ The Times,” “Alphabet Street,” “Batdance,” and “Cream.”
 
4Ever also includes “Moonbeam Levels”— a previously unreleased song originally recorded in 1982 during the “1999” sessions and later considered for the never released “Rave Unto The Joy Fantastic” album. 4Ever also includes a 12-page booklet of never-before-seen photos by photographer Herb Ritts.
 
During a career spanning four decades, Prince sold more than 100 million albums worldwide, making him one of the most successful artists of all time, with numerous No. 1 songs in the U.S. including “Purple Rain,” “Lets Go Crazy,” “Kiss” and “Cream.” In addition to his own recordings, Prince was a prolific songwriter for other artists as well, with credits including “Nothing Compares 2 U” (Sinead O’Connor), “Manic Monday” (Bangles), “When You Were Mine” (Cyndi Lauper), "I Feel For You" (Chaka Khan) and “How Come You Don’t Call Me Anymore” (Alicia Keys).
