prince

There’s never a dull moment when Prince is around. Continuing the promotional run for his upcoming Plectrum Electrum album with female three-piece 3rd Eye Girl, check out his new track “FixUrLifeUp.”

While no details are concrete as to whether or not it will feature on the purple pixie’s upcoming long play, it doesn’t matter. New Prince is new Prince. Right? Slightly rockier than some of his well known hits, obvious [Jimi] Hendrix and Sly [of Sly & The Family Stone] influences come in to play.

Debuted this week on CBC Canada radio, take a listen to “FixUrLifeUp” here.

Besides news of the new track, the King (he can be one of those too) of Paisley Park has also just announced a tour. Covering North America and limited parts of Scandinavia, see the dates below.
