UK here and no problems. confused




Located in Switzerland. Got the confirmation e-mail that says the download link will follow momentarily. Did not get it yet. However, on the previous 3rd Eye Girl website it always worked instantly to download.





confirmation email came to my inbox. the email with the download link came to my junk folder. go figure.



Already did. nothing there yet either. will check again later on.

^Now THAT hits the nail on the head! It's a nice track, a bit of the old fashioned Prince. The horns are gorgeous.

The Hornheadz thank you!!

For those of you curious, this is another 10 horn arrangement.

One pass with muted brass and woodwinds and the other with a standard 5 peice, mostly playing off of each other but sometimes together. (I had almost forgotten about this tune, glad it came out)

Exactly what I thought. I could definitely see this song played in 1985.




Oh please. This is a pile of directionless clichés, not a song.



Have u ever though of fucking giving up on Prince? Seriously...go pester other forums with your negative comments on everything that happens in Prince world. It's been years...Or maybe you find it cool to always post negativity because you get some attention?



Fuck are these people doing in a Prince-fan forum I don't know



More like decades. Bart's negativity predates the org and goes back at last until sometime around tGE/emancipation era on the alt.music.prince newsgroup

WOW!!!!!

I absolutely love the song. It's beautiful and one hell of a groove, love the bass licks at 3.20 and how the track builds up after that.

An awesome song and the horns are just too good.

Thanks Prince for another killer track. He has been on fire this year.

no i am saying that i don`t dig the sound. also, i doubt it`s him. i think it´s hannah.

it`s him on "walking in sand" for example. and i am cool with that sound and performance.

what i am gonna do now is put on my 12" Nothing compare 2 u promo vinyl. now THAT`s an awesome drumsond. because it`s michaelB.

Love...thy will b done

words fail to describe just how delicious this song is!

What about Michael Bland and Cora Dunham on 'Lotusflow3r'??

Cora is amazing on 'Dreamer', and Mike on 'Wall Of Berlin'.

It was middle of 2012, but that's not necessarily any indication of when he recorded the basics.

Ha anyone give thoughts to how the new tracks could be sequenced? I'm thinking about the new songs with horns - Breakfast Can Wait, Boyfriend, Ain't gonna Miss U (maybe RnR Affair should be in there to?)

I really like the new track.

This is NOT Front Page NEWS .....WHY???

It's not even stickied on the Music and more division.

If ANYTHING is NEWS, the release of a new track for purchase IS.

Come on now.

I had to make a new account too. Still waiting on email. What happened to not having to wait for the email? Every other time I could DL from the page showing my order history. That page is now gone. Guess I'm waitin...

confused

I think everyone had to make a new account when the site changed.

I agree, it was much better before with the download page, at least it was when it worked. A lot of people still complained then about missing emails when they missed, or didn't get to see, the download page.

I actually bought Aint Gonna Miss U after the site change having to make a new account at 3rdeyetunes.com at the time.

They've changed something with the site once more as I had to make new account again, even if I had the credentials from 3rdeyetunes.com saved in Firefox.

.

The transaction was fairly effortless and quick, though the download link mail from @fetchapp did go to junkmail.

Also noticed in my case at least the download was a lot quicker, the previous downloads relatively speaking took an eternity.

They're getting better, "no biggy" but the zip file even includes the "coverart" jpeg too.

.

I like the song, haven't really listened to the lyrics, but the music is great.

Did notice quite a bit of hiss, dont know what's up with that.

Prince is a musician not a lifestyle.

+1 to buying it but never recieving an email beyond the order confirmation. sad

Weird since I purchased Ain't Gonna Miss U When U Gone with no issues.

It looks like the problem was with Outlook, not the 3rdeyegirl site. http://www.theverge.com/2...ugust-2013

.

Was finally able to download the song smile

.

Really good stuff.

I'm a sucka for these smooth, jazzy songs. I like this one a heck of a lot.

For people to continued to complain...this track should come with a 100% money back guarantee. "groovy potential" is music that guarantees you get laid. You can take it to the bank.

Loving this track just absolutely loving it.

I think the hiss is intentional... Like he's purposly referencing the fact we all fell in love with bootleg on hissy cassettes and scratchy vinyl.

I would love to have my hands on the master tape and do a mix but you know what I just love it as it is without a single change
