Thanks to the mod who corrected the headline.

Yes -- new NPG twitter feed, not necessarily a new Prince feed.

My bad.

Still!

The beat reminds me very much of Extralovable reloaded. I guess they would both fit on the same project (especially the newest version of Extralovable, with the horn breakdown in the middle).

Cool stuff. I liked this song in Montreux; sounded very lush and 80s disco like.

Tired of these old school sounds.

It's Chaka scatting, right? Samples from "Come 2 my house"?

I don't see that anything has been removed recently from 3rdeyegirl.com. All the music that's been there for a while can still be purchased, and at http://3rdeyetunes.com.

Check out The Mountains and the Sea, a Prince podcast by yours truly and my wife. More info at https://www.facebook.com/TMATSPodcast/

I was trying to figure out what song the beginning of that track sounds like, and you hit it right on point, the beginning does sound a bit like 'Extralovable'.

Is the NPG now just the hornz? Whatever, the teaser track is very nice. They are blasting any other instrument into oblivion.

Probably not...as yesterday their new Twitter was called twitter.com/NPGHornz and now it's twitter.com/NPGofficial

I like the hint of background noises (it sounds like the faint hum of traffic a la the intro to Lady Cab Driver) plus also the finale of Prince saying, "She's in the big city", which might mean he sings? Good, fresh, organic sounding instrumentation, including the drums, and ad-lib vocals and skatting and samples. Overall, it reminds me of the production on Superconductor and it also sounds like some effort has gone into it. We shall see, but nice news.

Let's hope Prince sings, the backlash if any of the women sing will be unbearable!!! (same rule applies to the 3rdEye album...)

So we have a feed of certain info of uncertain source and we openly post the outtakes (!) linked in there?

Pills and thrills and daffodils will kill... If you don't believe me or don't get it, I don't have time to try to convince you, sorry.

I guess it's not the Hornheadz on this track, right Michael B (if you're reading...)?

Nice. I still miss Prince the songwriter, but if we're going to get Prince the bandleader, this is a good way of doing it. I like it much better than the 3rdEyeGirl stuff.

Yeah maybe. It has still the Hornheadz in the banner. This must be the largest NPG incarnation ever.
