Here's Some New Prince Music You Should Know Before His S.F. Shows
Granted, if you're seeing Prince at one of his four DNA Lounge shows today and tomorrow, you're probably a big fan. But just in case you haven't been keeping up with what the Purple One has been up to lately, here's a very quick roundup of new songs, a new version of an old fave, and a teaser for his suspected new album, Plectrum Electrum. They find Prince in grunge-soaked guitar-slayer mode -- which should be perfect for seeing him in a small club. According to recent setlists, they've also been figuring into his live shows. So check it out.
1. The new, fuzzed-out version of Purple Rain opener "Let's Go Crazy."
2. The hard-rockin' "FixUrLifeUp," which you can check out on the Ernest Radio Network.
3. The catchy new power-pop single "Screwdriver."
4. This promo for upcoming Prince album Plectrum Electrum, which will give you a sense of the mindset the Purple One seems to be in these days.
