By Annie Reuter

One of Prince’s unreleased albums will finally see the light of day, but only to one buyer, and for a hefty price tag. The 1986 album Prince recorded as his alter-ego, Camille, is up for auction.

The eight-track album features sped-up vocals on each of the songs, making Prince’s voice sound feminine. Many of the songs were later released on Prince’s regular albums.

Camille includes the previously unreleased “Rebirth of the Flesh” along with versions of  “If I Was Your Girlfriend,” “Housequake” and “Strange Relationship” and the B-sides “Shockadelica” and “Feel U Up.” It also contains “Rockhard In A Funky Place” which was on Prince’s Black Album and “Good Love” which was on the soundtrack of Bright Lights, Big City.

Prince’s former tour manager, Karen Krattinger, is selling the album through an auction house. Bidding for Camille ends on September 14. At press time the bid was at $4,840.
