It's cute. I like what it's turning into just before it ends.

I get the feeling this will be like Hardrocklover, the track screams for a longer version, but we never get it or Prince doesn't realise its full potential.

That's what's so frustrating with some of the new songs that I like... It's like just when P is loosening up and getting ready to really lettitgo, that's when the song abruptly ends! Enough teasing all ready! razz lol

This is a bit soon and feels a bit like a cash-grab (even though it's streaming for now).

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, lurring 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.

The final minute or so of this song gives me goosebumps. So much groove. Like a perfect cross between The Revolution and the hey-day of Graham Central Station. Funk yeah!

Good analogy about the B-sides, but IIRC Free Urself was teased long before HITnRUN ever was?

This song is FANTASTIC. I love it! It has several elements in common with Superconductor. Does anyone else hear it?

There are things that are just as certain as death and taxes.

I'm guessing if Prince follows the HNR1 schedule, we'll have HNR2 in about a month.

I can't decide if you mean the full "old Prince" Icon or half an icon with "coming soon" on it.

Either way seems he's channeling something early 80s. It didn't turn out well on MPLSSound but this sounds promising.

If that cover is a giveaway, shades off, I would say HNR Phase 2 will be a return to the Prince sound we have come to know and love, and most likely a solo produced effort.

Anything is possible but I'd say zero EDM on it, maybe Josh and 3eG contributing something but produced by Prince.

Now if he would also release some remasters to go along with the 1983 theme, that would be quite something (I'm only dreaming).

If Good Love and Rock And Roll Love Affair had a baby, this would be it! Man I love love love this tune, it's like I just travelled back in time to some unreleased mid 80's album.

The "Oh Yeah" at 2 minutes in is prefection.

Baltimore is a zero, which makes the whole equation equal to zero. You must subtract Baltimore.
