The delirious, pitch-shifted “I don’t really care what you’ve all been doing!” chorus at the close of Prince’s new “FUNKNROLL” single pretty much says it all about where his head is at these days. That’d be straight up in the clouds, coasting across clear skies with his 3rd Eye Girl crew ready to join the funk-heavy fray at the drop of a hat.
“No one can play like this band,” Prince told Rolling Stone recently. “People are going to try, but they won’t be able to.”
Have a listen to Prince’s busy solo rendition of “FUNKNROLL” below, and look out for its alternate full band version on September 30, when the Purple One releases Art Official Age and the 3rd Eye Girl-backed Plectrumelectrum LP.
