Well fuck me sideways and call me Susan. What a palate cleanser! If there had been no HNR would I think this so amazing? Anyway. Doesn't matter...fucking amazing...this, Stare, Indifference (tho maybe that's a threeeyedgirl song?) - hope that lovely artwork sees the light of day (the watercolour). Hopefully Josh is locked under the stairs with his fucking owl.

Yep.

Much as I enjoy HitnRun, it's hard to believe he was sitting on material like this. Particularly as this song was mentioned as the title track of an album several months before HitnRun was even mentioned.

Whatever, I'm looking forward to Phase 2 and hope it happens. Soon.

Awesome!

Very cool! Nice job P! clapping One of his best throw back tracks in 4ever!

This is what I wanted RnR Affair to sound like...tight, funky and fun!


Phase II is looking very good so far with Stare and now this ...bring it on P

And man that is a great Rosie impersonation at the end if that really is Judith? Either way I love it!

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

this is light 80s Prince but still much better than anything we've heard from him in a while..

Prince is at his best when he sounds 80s

Yup!! Can't deny it, and if anyone does... They are just a hater. lol

This and Sticky Like Glue are so throback 80's james without Prince actually trying hard to sound like his 80's works.

Great little tune. Extremely catchy. Maybe too catchy. Makes me wonder if it will have any lastability though. Sounds like an early 80s/planet earth hybrid. Could've done without the weak gospeley ending for me though. Makes it sound dated but not in a good way.

Great song. I agree that it has a kind of Dream Factory vibe mixed with a 1982 new wave vibe. I also got reminded of Baltimore a little.

Love it. It's on repeat.

Here are the lyrics, any changes needed?

Free Urself lyrics

How did we get here?

How did we get this far?

How did we get so high?

High enough to touch the stars, ohhh

If you could (if you could) Wouldn't you like to fly?

Just because (just because) there's no reason not to try

Free yourself (free yourself)

And save a place for me

Life is what you make it, Be the best that you can be (oh yeah)

Now's the time (now's the time)

Take your place in history (yeah)

Yours and mine (???)

The happy and the free (yeah)

Look at where we came from

How far we are today

We the people (we the people)

Will get the final say

3rd apartment from the sun

nothing left of me (no)

No need to hide or run

Heaven on earth right here

That's why, (You got to)

Free urself

And save a place for me (oh yea)

Life is what you make it (yes it is)

Be the best that you can be (yeah)

Now's the time

Take your place in history (oh yeah...go on take it)

Yours and mine (???)

The happy and the free

Love yourself so we can love you too

We need your help

There is so much work to do

Love yourself

So we can love you too

We need your help

Free, free yourself

Free yourself

Free, free yourself

Free yourself

Free, free yourself

Free yourself

Free, free yourself

Free yourself

Indifference is pure Prince? What about the guitar riff rip-off from James Brown's I can't Stand Myself?

I'm a little at odds with this release.

On one hand, I love the rapid-release format he's doing.

On the other hand, we JUST got HITnRUN a few weeks ago. This is a bit soon and feels a bit like a cash-grab (even though it's streaming for now).

This is great. Clearly a nod to The Revolution sound. Could you imagine this with Wendy & Lisa?? It's soooo simple - and that's what I like about it. There's no pretention. It's just a feel-good uplifting song. He sounds free. It's not overthought, but there's clearly a vibe he's going for and attains. I like the fact the lyrics aren't too subject specific. This is better than 90% of the tracks on HITNRUN - It's probably on par with my two favourite songs from HITNRUN ("Hardrocklover" and "1000 Hugs", which are too dissimilar to evaluate further). Great stuff, Prince. This sounds so fresh after the "digital" sound of HITNRUN.

I guess he's doing damage control after poor reception and bad sales of HITNRUN.

I'm sure he and the honchos at Tidal are aware that the free trial month that many of us signed up for to initially hear HITNRUN is soon to expire and they're trying to encourage as many of us as possible to start paying the monthly subscription, luring us with the carrot that you just never know what Prince will release next!. I have to say I'm in two minds at the moment. I was about to delete my account, but if Prince continues to release stuff like this I might stay a bit longer. The question is, how long this will last? I'm sure this was all worked out prior with Tidal, that he would release a new song just a week out from the end of the free trial. Cash grab, or just a sound business model? This is really no different from the days of B-sides, when they would be used to lure fans to buy the singles even if they had already bought (or planned to buy) the album.
