Purplish Rain is a compilation of Prince covers released by Spin magazine for readers of its July 2009 issue.[1] The album contains cover versions of songs from Prince's 1984 Purple Rain album, in the same track order as the original, on the occasion of the album's 25th anniversary.

It was not a physical album and was available in its digital format up to September 30, 2009.[2] The album cover features text in much the same font as the Purple Rain album, but with a drop of water added.
