Prince's Estate Releases Acoustic Demo Recording Of 'I Feel For You'

Prince's estate has released a previously unheard acoustic demo recording of "I Feel For You," to honor the 40th anniversary of Prince's eponymous second album.

The acoustic version of the song was released to streaming services on Friday, and will also be available for purchase as a limited-run 7" vinyl single.

"I Feel For You" was originally released by Prince in 1979 but later became a hit for Chaka Khan and the title track of her 1984 album.

Prince's stripped-down demo version was recorded in the winter of 1978-1979 and recently discovered on a cassette tape stored in the late artist's vault.

"I was blown away," Prince vault archivist Michael Howe said in a statement. "Here is 20-year-old Prince thinking aloud, feeling his way through the song."

Howe added, "You hear his incredible talent shining through on acoustic guitar, which is not something he typically showcased, and his guide vocal is astonishingly great."

HBO Appeals Ruling Ordering 'Leaving Neverland' Case To Arbitration

HBO has appealed a district court judge's decision ordering the legal battle over the premium cable network's documentary about sexual abuse allegations against Michael Jackson to arbitration.

A court filing by HBO's legal team said the order is being appealed to the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

U.S. District Court Judge George H. Wu sided with the Michael Jackson estate last month by ordering the multi-million-dollar lawsuit against HBO over Leaving Neverland to arbitration.

Jackson's estate has argued HBO violated a non-disparagement clause in a 1992 contract by airing the documentary, which details allegations against the late King of Pop by Wade Robson and James Safechuck.

Meanwhile, HBO has sought to have case thrown out under a statue that prohibits frivolous lawsuits filed against people for the exercise of First Amendment rights.

Bryan Freedman, an attorney for Jackson's estate, called the appeal "bogus" and "nothing more than HBO's latest desperate attempt to cover up the truth about its shoddy journalism."

"For seven months HBO has tried and failed to avoid a public arbitration," Freedman said. "This appeal, which is its latest Hail Mary attempt, is even more pathetic than all of its other attempts to avoid public scrutiny."

He added, "If HBO truly wanted to avoid a judgment, it should have thought about that before it aided and abetted a one sided documentary without any journalistic integrity and in which the subjects have a huge motivation to lie - namely the millions of dollars for which they are suing the Estate."

Keith Urban Shares New Version Of 'We Were' Featuring Co-Writer Eric Church

Keith Urban shared a new version of "We Were," featuring co-writer Eric Church on Monday, a day after hinting at a collaboration on Instagram.

The new version has all the original arrangements in place. While Urban leads with his vocals in the first verse, Church joins in on the second.

"At least there's a little bit of sweet in the bitter / Though a part of me is always gonna miss her / I am who I am / I just miss who I was when we were," Church sings to the accompaniment of Urban's harmonies in the background. The duo unite on the final chorus.

"We Were," written by Church, Jeff Hyde and Ryan Tyndel, was originally released in May 2019.

Urban revealed after recording the song that he did not know Church was one of the co-writers.

"I found out and I called Eric, and I was like, 'Dude, I just cut this song.' He was thrilled. I said, 'I had no idea that you were a writer on it.' He said, 'Well that's even better, because it means you really loved the song.' I said, 'I do, I love the song,'" Urban said.

The song is currently in the top 10 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.

Urban and Church previously teamed up for "Raise 'Em Up," a 2015 hit, which rose to the top of the Airplay chart. The song was part of Urban's album Fuse.
