The return of Prince has many very excited, and rightly so as he has been delivering some pretty awesome new records, including “U Know” and “Clouds,” as he gets fans ready for the release of two brand new albums.
Today, following the live premiere of the song on The Arsenio Hall Show earlier this year, the icon shares the high energy, electric “FUNKNROLL.” The third release from his upcoming 13-track solo album, ART OFFICIAL AGE.
Opening with a hard rock edge, the record quickly breaks down with a snappy percussion backbeat, with elements that remind you of old Neptunes production. A quite unique soundscape for the Purple One, but still laying down plenty of funk and guitar as the title amply states. It is clear this is modern Prince.
Both ART OFFICIAL AGE, and debut album with his new band 3rdEyeGirl, PLECTRUMELECTRUM, which will be released on September 30 via his new venture with Warner Bros. Records.
