UK Dance Charts. Right. The last time Prince had anything on the Official UK Charts was, oh wait a minute!, it was last month on the 27th with Purple Rain. It was at number 75! Wonder how that happened. Anybody any ideas?

I just saw the video..And

confused

I love that he added 'The Rainbow Children' on the wall..lol'

If only he released a video of that song!! It would be aweeeeeeeeeeesomeeeeeee! Haha

10 minutes too! AHHH...

'

But..

I must say though..I still wonder why Prince made this song? It's almost like he wanted to tell people. I am Prince, I can do whatever I want, whether you like it or not. It is almost like a country diss...lol

It's not like 'Rich Friends, Purple & Gold, or There Never Another Like Me...lol. Those songs I can not manage to listen to, I can listen to 'RNR' but it lacks soul and all of the things he talks about in the song. 'He believed in Rhythm and blues, and this thing called soul'. I don't feel it. It gets in my head easily, maybe cause it sounds smooth and it does not irk me. It also reminds me of 'Take Me With U, which of course is a classic! But it feels like Prince just wanted to tell us he can do all kind of music.

To each is own, but everytime I listen to it, or more especially watching the video..I could not help to think out of all the videos to do..He choose 'RNR'. He did not do one for extraloveable but he did a video for this. LOL

I think he purposely wants people to be divded and show he can do whatever he wants, and while we already know that. He pretty much confirms it in great details here.. lol

Guys, sorry to disappoint, but I think this was a misinterpretation by the OP (the subject line here extrapolates from the article's headline, which just mentions the general RnR release).

Noise11.com is an Aussie-based music news site, but it features international music news and that particular news article is not specific to Australia - it's the same announcement that was made by Purple Music recently in Europe and the US.

If any news emerges regarding a specific release downunder, Noise11.com will be onto it, but nothing has surfaced to date.

it's gonna be available but it's not going to sell much unless the folks on radio decide to play it which i doubt. i want to explain why, i saw the official music video to the song-a total disaster in my opinion. the video was shit house.

Love the song, so so on the video. Nice to see him playing in and being part of a video. It's Prince's life, let him do what he wants... he doesn't need our permission. You should be glad you have the freedom to listen or not. Duh... leave the man you claim to love alone. He doesn't owe you anything.

So I'm confused - when will we start 2 hear this on the radio & be on sale in Australia?? And by on sale I mean can we walk into a music store & buy it or just online?

There is no Australian release.

You won't hear it on the radio.

You can't walk into a music store and buy it.

You can buy it online via Purple Music.

If anything changes, no doubt Noise11 (and other sources) will write about it and actually use the words "Australian release" somewhere in the article.

At that point, the thread topic will make sense, but for now, it's simply a misinterpretation that somehow made it to the front page...which is pretty impressive, given that the official music video has been out for a couple of days and hasn't made front page news here yet.

You can order it from Purple Music - http://www.purplemusic.ch...Itemid=177

The shipping will probably double the cost (particularly if you get vinyl), but AFAIK it's currently the only way to get a physical product. It's available as a CD single, 12" vinyl or 12" picture disc.

are you sure? i hate when i have to register to a site, it annoys me, and then i look at the currency it's in pounds, no australian dollars, what is 5.99 pounds? for the cd single. i'll buy it when i can be bothered.

Ordered it on the first minute of release.wouldnt have missed it.but one tune with a few house versions isn't much to go on.we need that new album or at least for prince to open the vault one more time.

And as for shipping from Switzerland I paid more for economy post than I paid for the cd single.

Well, I ordered a picture disc and a CD, so I'll let you know if they arrive safely - it all processed fine. I think I resisted registering last time, for the Dance 4 Me (etc...) remixes, but I do like to support physical product, even if you have to register (and the remixes are...um...not great), so I went ahead with it this time.

The currency is in Euro, btw - you can change it to pounds, Swiss franc or US dollar on the left-hand side (near the top), but there's no option for Australian dollar. I think 6 euro is just under $7.50 at the moment. You can get exact figures at http://www.oanda.com/

Opinions are many... that's fine. I like the original song. This crap extended junk on this purple music website is pure junk... that is a waste of time! I would rather have just the song, extended version and a good ol' B-side like you used to get. That way, those who hate the song don't have to bother with it and those who like it can buy it and add it to their collection. Is there a way to do a poll to see who likes the original song and those who don't? I see a lot who dislike it and a lot who like it... as always... people here can't even argue which songs they like from the past without upsetting someone. smile

Talking to a guy at JB, the only new Prince releases they have coming in at the moment, are the rereleases of his LPs, not the single at this stage.

Sigh.

The article was reporting on international news - nowhere does it mention an Australian release.

***There is no Australian release for this single.***

I purchased this on the Purple Music site and paid via Paypal. The money is gone from Paypal account but I got an email from Purple Music saying they can't ship until they get the money from Paypal. I've emailed Purple Music but never get a response. Anyone experiencing this?

Hope it's okay to post this here. But if not I'm sure someone will tell me.

Thanks!

Just an update. Had to get PayPal involved and Purple Music canceled my order with no explanation. Nice customer service they have there. Is P running Purple Music? Because their customer service stinks! (Oooo did I just say that out loud? *snicker*) Anyway no communication on when I will get a refund. What a let down it, was a gift for a friend who is a collector. Ridiculous!

Anyone heard the single on Australian radio yet? Unikely the video will be played here. I don't understand how it can be classified as a worldwide release.

I still don't hate it on Christmas day.it is simply a light breezy little guitar road song I like but the other mixes have never convinced me they are value for money.I'm not really into house music.Download track 1 from iTunes and just forget the rest.Prince stop being such a technaphobe and give us the album we are eagerly waiting for.No USA extended edition of 20ten then this scrap that's too little,totally late.weak,really weak.
