Listen to Donnie Trumpet's Prince-inspired release, "In Your Light".

The music world is still in mourning following the shocking news of Prince's death earlier this week, and mant musicians and fans are still paying tribute to the iconic songwriter. Donnie Trumpet has decided to dedicate a new release to the purple one, explaining that an unreleased demo of his inspired him to value all of his own music, even the ideas that remained in the sketch phase. "In Your Light" appears to be an outtake from the SURF sessions, but still speaks to Donnie's vision in the grand scheme of things. Read his explanation on the Sima Cunningham-assisted song below.

One of my best friends and musical mentors, Maceo from the band The Omys gave me a mix cd when i was going through a tough time with a song called Donna by Prince. I listened to the song over and over in the car. I never imported the cd, could only hear it in the car, so when i tried listening to it on tour i couldn't find it anywhere. As you know Prince's music is pretty rare on the internet but this song was especially elusive because it was a part of a compilation album of his "unfinished" music. This was a really powerful inspiration for me after having worked so hard on Surf and still having so much material left over that didn't quite fit but still described my vision and passion of the era of making music when putting Surf together. Songs are like poems, they're never done.

Quotable Lyrics:
Pocket in every memory I know I won't forget
Window that, every meaning I know I won't regret
Taking my time to learn from you
Listen to every story, even on repeat
Dancing, I'll follow you standing on your feet
