You can download a sample of the song from 3rdEyeGirl's twitter.

Ya beat me to it! Just heard it and its so cool to hear new PRINCE music - finally!

I like it - very old skool and layered P vocals! YES!!!

The greatest live performer of our times was is and always will be Prince.

Remember there is only one destination and that place is U
All of it. Everything. Is U.

I like a lot more than I thought I was going to. Catchy, nice vocals, lyrics don't sound as bad as I imagined them to.

Shame he has stepped back from the progression with 3EG. This sounds ok, but more like an Emancipation outtake than 2014.

True. While I'm suprised I like this as much as I do, I would choose Plectrumelectrum over it. I like rock Prince the best, and I really want Prince to make a full rock album with 3rdEyeGirl (and maybe two or three). Their songs, (at least what we've heard of the studio versions of Wow, Plectrumelectrum, Funknroll and Pretzelbodylogic), have really good production and sound both cohesive and guitar heavy. I think 3rdEyeGirl is the best direction for Prince to head in.

Is he just sayin' "this some B.S."? Because if he his I totally agree. An improvement over 20Ten, but.. only FAMS can get into this crap. "You're the ,<high note>cage to my dove/ I'm just sayin..." Holy mother this thing is annoying already. So many sound effects, you would think it was an episode of Yogi Bear. Prince doesn't get the internet. A song about a meme isn't a good idea. It's too obvious. It comes off like you are trying to control the narrative, and that's not cool on the interwebs. In a perfect world Prince would jsut promote the remasters and chill out with all these desperate, two-bit, attempts at writing something brand new. Has Prince even heard El Debarge's comeboack record? How could EL be able to put the pieces together to sound that smooth and contemporary while Prince sounds like he don't know anything about musical trends past 1973? Prince always sounds like he's trying to take the early 70's side of R&B and sprinkle them with a bit of autotune and say it's all good.

Yup. It's like he cannot help himself and just keeps rehashing the same handful of ideas.

Yet another snippet of a song that we may or may not get to hear in full. And if we do, it'll be an online single with no video and no promotion on Prince's part that'll sink into obscurity and then we'll wait a few months for the next 'Hey journalist, here's some new songs I've got ready for release, but (insert latest boring, predictable distribution, money-orientated gripe here) won't allow me to release it'.

For some reason, these days I see Prince as the Miss Havisham (Great Expectations) of the music world.

Now we all know Prince bitching is responsible for half the traffic on this site and its the Org's unofficial "national" sport.

Even though they all come back to say how bitterly disappointed they are, most can still be counted to chime in.

And that's saying something in the grand scheme of things.

Not sure about this one, need to hear the rest. My first impression: as it happened with The Breakdown, I wish it had the 3rdeyegirl sound...

Thanks to the person that provided me a link! With that said..... Would you like some wine with that cheese?

Every time a new Prince tune is released I still hold out a little bit of hope that I will like it. But I'm starting to understand why I won't. I think it's because in the end I don't like Prince so much as Prince AND whoever he's surrounding himself with/listening to at the moment. So yeah, when Prince was inspired by post punk, and Gary Numan, and Santana and the Beatles, when he had Wendy and Lisa and Susannah and Sheila, I loved it because I love those artists. The stuff he's been doing for the last 20 years? Not really my thing. It sounds forced and "current", but not in a good way. Prince should NEVER sound current. He should sound Nostalgically Futuristic.

But to each their own. If you like it cool.

Thanks so much for the link! I think it is a cool song but I have to hear the whole thing before I make a final judgement. But from what I hear, it is fresh, new, and of the time period we are in. Sounds like Josh gave it a little production touch.

I don't like these thin casio keyboard sounds he's got going on. I wan't to hear some fat, funky, analogue synths! lol Infectious rhythms and great melodies with some pop sensibilities is what I really want from him.
