    A new documentary called Prince: R U Listening?, is slated to come out next year. The film will concentrate on Prince's early years and his rise to global fame, via a commentary from musicians who played with him, and from friends and family.

    Alongside interviews with Prince's peers, Bono, Mick Jagger, Billy Idol, Lenny Kravitz and Sheila E., the film will also feature interviews with musicians central to the artists sound; Dez Dickerson who joined Prince's touring band in 1979 and left the group following the 1999 tour, André Cymone, who played bass in Prince's teenage band Grand Central in the Seventies and toured with the artist through 1981.

    Producing and directing control will be taken by Michael Kirk on behalf of 13 Films film company. The film has has not yet been given a U.S. release date.

    One year after his death, Prince will be honored with a four-day celebration at his former home / studio Paisley Park. The Paisley Park complex in Chanhassen, Minnesota, officially opened as a museum on October 28th celebrating the life and work of the man, and is an ideal location in which to mark the anniversary of the icon's death. The day was also declared "Paisley Park Day" by the mayor of Chanhassen.

    The team now running Paisley Park have announced Celebration 2017; a series of concerts from April 20th to April 24th 2017 that will host Prince-affiliated acts like the Morris Day & The Time, New Power Generation, Liv Warfield & Shelby J with members of 3rdEyeGirl, and The Revolution.

    Prince's first posthumously released song, "Moonbeam Levels," recently came out as part of a new compilation, Prince 4ever. The song dates back to 1982, when Prince was working on his hugely successful album, 1999.
