I bet WBR get first right of refusal.

Bart please don't be so much bad faith, this is a DIGITAL single on iTunes, there is no prior investment in printing CD's, a record label can only MAKE money from releasing a single on iTunes no matter how little it sells, by no means lose any, and u know it perfectly.

.

That doesn't mean they'll approve just about anything. I'm sure their contract also involves certain conditions like "three albums released = 1 less year of WBR having control" and thus it is in their interest not to put something out.

.

I doubt they'll let Prince just do whatever the fuck he pleases, and I would expect each release to come with conditions and possibly negotiations. (Except for a charity single like "Baltimore".) Don't expect WBR to give Prince as much leeway as they did with TMBGITW. Note how his bitching about WBR stopped once AOA/PlecElec got announced: I wouldn't be surprised if such a condition was part of that deal and that there are penalties when Prince decides to run his mouth again. Note how all his talk about Judith Hill quickly faded.

Oh look, yet another instantly forgettable bland pop funk track that features him boasting. Because we don't yet have enough of that tripe yet, apparently.

.

Note how he's back to predictable party crap now he's had all the promo he could wrangle from Baltimore.

Note you still have these two dimensional opinions.

Dimension one: Prince is desperate for publicity.

Dimension two: Prince just wants to make as much as money as he can.

He may have recorded many of the songs well before Baltimore, so where do you get the sequence 1) now that he had all the promo Baltmore 2) he's doing party music?

You heard snippets so you don't know if it's all "party music" and most of the album was likely recorded before Baltimore, so this is just you seeing things the way you want to see them, nothing more.

.

He once stopped an album release when they were SHIPPING PHYSICAL COPIES and paid millions to do so. But he was unable to stop his own Twitter account from posting links to three short snippets he uploaded on YouTube?

.

If he cares so much about the issues surrounding Baltimore (which BTW was just one of many, many examples), why isn't he following up on that? D'Angelo released an entire album centered around that theme, yet here's Prince mere weeks later and he's back to party mode. Did I miss something, were all those issues now solved?

.

So here's a simpler explanation: Prince doesn't give one fuck about anything except his own damn self, and he used Baltimore to enhance his profile. Hell, just look at the crappy song he released: does that sound like he genuinely cares?

I dunno. Looks like the bog-standard palette knife or similar tool applied to a photo in Photoshop.

I was thinking ir might be a filter too, but that doesn't take away that it looks cool. Now this is a concert t-shirt i would wait in line for.

The link to the artist's website has already been posted here before.

I think she's French. Could be wrong.

I think this one ranks much higher on the cool scale. Plus is far more iconic.

The pics in the past have been cartoonish -
i.e. TRC and 20ten. At least this is a
change. Plus I feel using fan art is a
positive thing.
One thing I can't figure out - is he asleep
or dead?

Prince has a recognisable face. This picture without any writing (just on the spine of the case) would look great.

Neither. He's just a bit groggy!

Always loved the metallic slap bass sound in those reduced funk jams. Promising snippets. Leave out the weak mid tempo stuff and all those guest singers. Turn on the BOOM on the one, slap it, play the guit licks from 12th fret upwards, get hysterical again and do it all in album size. End of wish list.

3121 has a fine cover with its amber tones. It doesn't really reflect the music inside tho

Nice cover. Dude lyrics might still suck but someone has talked to him about the covers he's been putting out. When a non fan sees this cover they won't be immediately turned off and not even give the music a listen
