It is not of official origin, nor the proposed 12" maxi from 1987. It is on "DrFink's" mixcloud account, among other unofficial 'mixes'.

I can't imagine it being any longer than the album cut.

The official remix is rumored to be along the lines of the a 'I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man' 12" maxi deal. It may have been outsourced (and therefore may be partially looped and/or with newly recorded material not at P's immediate direction). It is unclear whether the horns section recorded by Eric Leeds was implemented in it. A test print of the single cover leaked about three or four years ago.

.

He was said to have been quite excited about the prospects of the single. It is unclear whether it was vaulted for quality control reasons, or reconsideration of its appropriateness as a single choice.

.

The 8:03/8:04 minute "version" the original poster is referring to is a self-made remix available for listening on DrFink's mixcloud account. It contains no new sound elements beyond the album version, except for those recorded by the remixer himself.

My guess it was always either a likely remix, as the beat is highly mixable, or played out as longer version with an instrumental extension. I base that only on the facts that the exisiting lyrical content seemed to conclude the story, and that the song fades out.

I wonder if it went on into the 'Four' interpolation. Maybe 'Four' is "The Ballad of Dorothy Parker PT II". Or I can imagine the song ending abruptly with the same drum roll from the intro.

As previous replies stated, there indeed is an official extended version of Dorothy Parker that was recorded, could possibly be just an extension from the fade-out on the album version, as well as an 15+ minute version (give or take) of "Adore" as mentioned by Prince himself to the Orange & Black podcast team.

Neither have been leaked and the one you heard online was most likely a fan-made or unofficial remix.
