There is new music by Prince. And it’s free online… wait, WHAT? Are we sure we are talking about the same Prince who pulled all of his stuff offline years ago? Yep. Same talented and eccentric musician.

I’ve been a big Prince fan for years, even though I think some of the weird shit he’s done is pretty much out there. But there’s no denying this guy is really good. So when he’s been musically silent for the last couple of years, you take notice when even a single new song is released.
This song reminds me a lot of a song he did for his Hits/B-Sides collection called “Peach”. Very rock like and has a great flow and sound. “Screwdriver” brings some of that retro sound back. With a nice bit of that familiar Prince funk. I like it after a few listens and it’s giving me hope that maybe we will see more from the Purple One here in the new year.
So what do you think?
