It's apparently on her "Superconductor" album. I guess it talks about their "story" ?

I still haven't heard this album--a lot of people said it was well done and wished Prince had recorded some of the songs for himself. I'll have to give it a listen.

She played it today on her facebook livestream. Really beautiful. Someone asked her about the inspiration for the song (which she wrote with P) and she became coy and was like "it's the story of you and I" and said "that's all I'm giving."

She said on her livestream that she tried to sing a song for him and he was like "No!" lol and she said she feels like no one can do his songs justice. Maybe that's why?

What picture is up? The black and white photo she posted after his passing? I also heard there's a pic of her in the galaxy room.

Found a "listen while you read" but has no lyrics posted, but one can listen to the song on www.songlyrics.com under andy allo the story of you and I. Some of it is a little hard to make out.

The story of you and I has been hiding hiding behind the moon...

hold each othr tight,....conversation of our bodies....

different song every night (?)

how we came to be Free....

is part of what I can make out...Will need to grab head phones later. Sng is a little over 3 minutes. Just Andy on her guitar.

My favourite protegé album since the mid 80s. Stunning, from start to finish.

Agreed. Perfect word to describe it. Some songs on there that if P were on lead vocals you'd be looking at them charting. Fantastic album, ebbs, flows and is just so rich.

Always dug it... but on my last listen I finished it and said out loud, "That album is damn near perfectly executed." Love it.

Andy had a really sweet duet with Prince up on her facebook a few years back. Does anyone remember this? Did it ever get a proper release?

It's still there. U Will Be

This song is beautiful! My husband and I recently celebrated our 25th anniversary and my son sang it for everyone. We had worked on it beforehand, changing some of the lyrics so it wouldn't be weird. One of the lines is "every night you enter me as the sun enters the sea..." That had to to be changed for example.

Her whole Superconducer album is gorgeous! "Nothing More" is another favorite. I thing Prince wrote most of this album, personally. Andy's other music doesn't have such a mature and rich sound.

wasn't that Prince playing guitar on Oui Can Luv?

Her "guitar playing" might have improved by 2016 but it was so bad it may as well not have been there back when she was in the NPG.

Yes, that was Prince playing on "Oui Can Luv".

I'll never criticize anyone who got to play with Prince. If they were good enough for him, they were good enough for me.
