Whats the last *new* Prince song you heard?

With Prince passing there have been quite a few new leaks and bootlegs/live performances that have come out. With Prince's vault I am confident there will be many more newtracks that our ears will eventually get to listen to for the very first time.

Even for those you have been around for a while wink there must be some B Sides or remixes/versions you have recently come across of existing songs that might have caught you by surprise despite thinking you had heard it all!

So question to you all is what was the last *new* prince song you heard ??....

For me I have recently heard a number of Piano and Microphone performances which have astounded me. Tonight I have listened to 'The Morning After' which was a track only available on the download version of LotusFlow3r.

If we define "new" as "a song I never heard before", as opposed to a new version of a song I already knew, then it was either Wally or Coco Boys.

I am always listening to the Phase 2 album. I love the songs that have that retro soul/funk vibe, like ´Black Muse´, "Big City´, ´Groovy Potential´, ´Stare´ (that one grew on me), etc.

Peace

Cool Love. But I want to hear are those five songs Morris Hayes was talking about. Supposedly Prince allowed him to hear them only once. Morris said they were from the Purple Rain era and were better sounding too.

I found an interview on YouTube where Morris mentioned 5 songs that Prince made during the time he made the Purple Rain music. Prince told Morris that the 5 songs were better then any song on Purple Rain. Morris didn't believe him until Prince played all 5. Morris was so impressed, he agreed they were better and tried to convince P to release them. Prince told him no and that he would save them for his children so they could release them when he was gone for their own financial gain. Of course, that never happened.

'Boyfriend' - great track, straight lyrics, flawless hornz arr. / But despite all 'vault' thing, new leaks etc. in contact with random ppl i realized that the Prince's offical dischography alone is the vault for 90% of them. :d

Same here. The more I listen to it, the more I like this album.
Since 2010, we had "nothing left to prove" albums, they're full of hapiness.
If you welcome them as they are, they're so great.
I'm partial to Lavaux, I was born just a mile away, I know the view on the Lac Léman,
I know exactly what is talking about, the vibes of the place, the wineyards, Vevey, the chocolate.

But "Future Soul Song"? I could do without "dogmatic", it's not a very musical word,
but it's a fantastic, slow motion vision. It's extatic, you have to take it or leave it.

"Stare" is also a surprising grower. I remember most of the Org bashed it when the excerpt came out before the album.
Now I can't even remember the song that it was said it was copied after.

"Baltimore" has also being transfigured, the album version is so much better than the first release.
What a videoclip. Always brings a tear to my eye. I'd sure wish we had more years of seeing, possibly helping Prince doing good deeds.
Yeswecode is alive, and so are the schools.

"Screwdriver", not so much, I prefer the punky mix in the original video shot in PP with 3rd Eye Girl.
The one where Donna arrives at PP.

And "Black Muse" is deceiving: at first you'd think it breaks no ground, but it's all in the build up,
and will remain as Prince's best gospel of the latter years.
The progression of the song is phenomenal, and now I know it by heart,
the intro only brings a big smile to my face, and speaks of Prince playing ping-pong
a thousand light years from here, and casually waiting for you to come get a rematch.
But you'll be one in a long line who wants to see Daddy Pop.

Yeah, Phase II, with Deliverance and all the blasts from the pasts,
even when we were sad of his passing Prince managed to cheer us up.
From beyond the urn.
Then again, why not?
I mean look a the thing.
Who wants to live in a monstrously-kitsch-even-by-Liberace-standards ashtray 4 ever?

I'm all for rehersals now. I love candid Prince giving instructions, cracking a joke, The Revolution's Screams Of Passion is a good example.
I mean, with a diet including Pizza, hamburgers, root beer and pussy, I feel like Prince is always gonna serve Chili Sauce
whenever the world turns tasteless.
Or soothing me by affirming that wherever I go, whatever I do, I'll still have the voice of one
of my best friends whispering and dedoubling himslef in my ears (one for each ear, pay attention)
whenever I feel like I can't endure it anymore.
Nothing is worth it if you don't have to try,
the kind of shit made to lift the chin up.
The boy scout he was. The Good Kid.

The recent I Would Die 4 U / Uptown 1981 soundboard soundcheck is very interesting,
you witness the genesis of the song, and exactly 3 years after that, we get Landover.
But it's the take on Uptown that shows how good The Revolution could be.

International Lover in Detroit '82 is another baffling example that, for a guy that asked to be alone when recording his lead vocals,
he sings almost (if not) better than on the album, in total mastery of his vocal cords, soul pouring out of him, unstoppable.

No popular artist ever sung that good on stage, except for jazz and classical singers. Major League crafts.wo.men.
I'm talking stamina, helding notes, delivery and improvisation.
Few can rearrange a melody on the spot while making it riveting.
It takes a musician.

I Would Die 4 U

yes, but it was the 1982 version, different enough...

Pills and thrills and daffodils will kill... If you don't believe me or don't get it, I don't have time to try to convince you, sorry.

I dig Phase 1 more (hardly listen to Phase 2) but Stare is such a great song! If it was on Phase I instead of Mr Nelson it would be perfect (just my humble opinion, of course).
