Andrea Swensson and DJ Mary Lucia have said they will broadcast a brand new Prince song.

Of course this could be 'Screw Driver'

The interview was very very short. Talked a little about Prince playing Ping Pong with Ida. How

Prince enjoys being silly. He still lives in Min. The new website. How he found each woman.

Really didn't tell us very much. But Screw Driver sounded good.

It occurs to me that all of the newer band members are to enamoured with being in Prince's band and hanging out with him. So we get silly shit about ping pong and what not.

Surely we've all gotten over that by the age of 16 and we're looking for some real information at this point.

Someone needs to give these girls some pointers before no one is interested in talking to them any more.

I listened to the interview in my car on my new iPhone - LTE rocks!

Not alot said besides how he found them...even NPR stated that MySpace is dead wink

Hannah mentioned some overseas promo dates! What about the USA there P?

They also asked about the hat and mentioned 3rdEyeGirl

They finished with playing Screwdriver which sounded AWESOME on my cars premium sound system!

Listening to a song in a car is always a good way to really hear a a song and its potential.

I was rocking out! headbang

2013=PRINCE

Snooze...love Hannah's energy, appreciate their talent but Ida and Donna have zero personality IMO. They should have Nik West as the bassist in this girl group instead of Ida.

Prince gave them pointers. It was called a non-disclosure agreement. lol
