On September 30th, Prince will be releasing two separate albums: one solo one calledÂ Art Official Age, and one with his 3RDEYEGIRL band calledÂ Plectrumelectrum. Today, The Purple One has shared a new track from the former. "FuNKNROLL," as it's called, is just about the funkiest thing we've heard this month.
Opening bombastically, this track may have you wondering what Prince is thinking, but if that's the case, just wait for the beat drop at 0:20. What follows is some OutKast meets Funkadelic meets Jamie xx-style madness, driven by a minimal-but-unmissable synth line that will inspire jealousy in almost any hip-hop producer.
After all these years, Prince can still make any room full of people dance.
Finally beloved we meet at last
Middle of the here, nevermind the past
Only way to get you where you never been
Let's party like you ain't gon' party again
