The horns are straight from prince, the time was all prince except for the vocals, the whole concept of uptown/mineapolis funk is prince.

Ummmm, I know The Time was all Prince.... but Uptown Funk's horns are nothing like what Prince was doing horn (or should I say synthesizer ) wise in the 80's.

why are you restricting the horns to the 80s, those horns (or horn synths) sound exactly like what prince has used in songs.

And the long lost 20T3N deluxe Xtended versions........

yeah, i agree. I still really like Prince's extended jams. They sound effortless, but not like, "this guy needs to put more effort into this..."

It is really bland.

Can somebody educate me, cause I'm coming off of caffeine right now, and can't really think straight. how do we know that this is part of a summer release of new music? I'm confused.
I can't see where this indicates anything is coming this summer. It might as well be the same thing as "2013 is going to be huge!", but even that at least was explicitly stated by the Prince camp. I can't see anything that says we're getting new music this summer.

Besides, AOA and PE were just released last fall.

In the video it shows "NEWFUNK BY PRINCE THIS SUMMER".

This translates to new music by Prince sometime in the next 2 years.

I would have loved an extended mix of The Gold Standard.

Back in the good ole' days, Gold Standard would have been a single and there would have been a 9 minute version on the 12"... sigh

The phrasing reminds me of "We Gets Up"...... and Prince just said "HAM" in 2015.... feeling ill

Funny, I started humming We Gets Up right after I listened to those snippets..

Same here

Yeah, I love Graffiti Bridge movie, so what? ''Oooooooooooh Montreal, say it!''

Because the song is an homage to 80's funk and people have said it sounds like Prince, maybe....?

I'm still feeling these clips. Played them again and my head just bobs around like blonde bimbo. It's contageous. The guitar work is incredible! Hope the finished track is as cool as what the clips infer.

I heard the remix at Paisley Park and it's worse than the album version. I also heard ones for Preztelbodylogic and This Could Be Us. I'm not sure if Joshua is remixing those, but they aren't good, in my opinion.

Everything from AOA needs to be remixed into the trash. There is nothing to make those tracks listenable other than starting over from scratch. Fingernails on the chalkboard bad. Unlistenable.

I liked the whole album (AOA), but I can respect your opinion of it.

I'm usually hypercritical, but I don't hear anything bland at all. It has all kinds of cool goodness simmering about. It just stays in it's groove like classic Prince used to. The dissonant guitar juxaposed with another guitar, while the bass plays it's on thing and it interweeves with the higher pitch melody. It's awesome.

It's all just guitars, bass and drums. All interplaying with each other. No synths. No nothing just guitars and a drum. I love the cleanness of it. It's all in the musicianship of the man to create such a simple yet complex groove come off so accessible.

I hope the rest is like this, I hope he doesnt goof it up with all kinds of other shit to it. If I agree with some, it's the explossion thing at the end of the snippets. It lacked cornyness up until that point. But I really dig this little groove. I like the empty space. I miss the empty space Prince used to great effect. Empty space is as cool as sound becasue it gives it that contrast.

I think if the rest of it lives up to this, then it would be the coolest track he has released in the longest time. Love love the groove.



I can see this playing on the radio. It's so stark. Just guitars and drums. This would cut through all the other noise being played today. I can see people bobbing their heads to this.





[Edited 5/28/15 15:41pm]



Agreed. This is very promising.

I personally think that Prince and/or WB needs to put more effort in promoting... or just needs a better staff in charge of promotion... If I were head of promotion, last year for AOA & PlecElectrem I would've had Prince on things like Ellen, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, random radio show (I can't think of any honestly, I don't listen to it) I would've had commercials everywhere on TV, video ads for YouTube, ads for Spotify etc. (I know he did Arsenio Hall back in March 2014, but that was months and months before they even were released) ...

I don't mean to come across as a douche-bag or anything, I'm just saying that this is how I'd do it.

...and besides a couple of appearances on places like ellen, Jimmy Fallon, etc. Prince wouldn't have to do much.. a majority of the promotion would go in to ads.

My interpretation would be that Warners most likely would have done and wanted all of that, it's their job and what they are there to do. Although I don't know for a fact I'd be pretty surprised if it wasn't P that wouldn't do the promotion and that he has his own reasons for this - not wanting to jump through hoops or even personal reasons that if we knew we might understand and agree with his decision.

true, we (as fans) don't know what's going on in the man's personal life.
