Prince fans get excited – the symbol has returned to bring back the funk with his latest single “Screwdriver.”
Dripping with funkalicious beats “Screwdriver” doesn’t sound like anything else in his catalogue to date. I like it! The single was released as a half lyric, half music video on his website.
“Screwdriver” comes two months after “Rock & Roll Love Affair” dropped – a fantastic returning track. I fell in love with this track from first listen. The genre of rock & roll music is becoming a fond but distant memory in this age of musical mediocrity and chart flooding. It is refreshing to see Prince breathe back life into the nearly extinct genre.
A new website, 20pr1nc3.com, has also been launched which will hopefully give us hints as to when we will see a new album from his Purple Highness.
The release of “Screwdriver” and “Rock and Roll Love Affair” certainly wasn’t promoted in the way we are used to seeing these days. Discreetly released on his website with little fuss.
Catch the video for Prince’s “Rock and Roll Love Affair” below “Screwdriver” and get your purple life!
