“It’s a beautiful thing to have a friend — someone who cares about your career, and wants to see you go far and to push boundaries and shake up the world — give whatever they possibly can to the cause,” she said of Prince.
Hot on the heels of “Screw Driver,” “Breakfast Can Wait” and “FIXURLIFEUP,” Prince has released yet another new tune, “Ain’t Gonna Miss U When U’re Gone,” featuring singer-songwriter Ledisi.
Last month, Prince released ‘FIXURLIFEUP,’ a rockin’ track and a tease to his new album, Plectrum Electrum. Now, the Purple One is fixing up a high school jazz band from Oregon with a trip to New York City.
For those music fans bummed not to be among the fray hitting showcases along the Sixth Street corridor, SXSW 2013 is offering an array of live online streams broadcasting the action as it happens.
Billed as a special performance, the Recording Academy announced today, Monday, February 4, that previously announced performer Rihanna will join Bruno Mars and Sting for a special performance on the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards. No additional details were made available at press time, but it is the first time these three legendary performers will take the stage together.
After toying with the idea for a few months, Prince booked six last-minute shows at the Dakota Jazz Club in downtown Minneapolis this week. With more shows to come Thursday and Friday, Wednesday night (January 16) saw Prince play two shows (8 p.m. and 11 p.m.) billed as a “sound check” audition for new drummer Ronald Bruner.
Prince has never been a big fan of the Internet spending lots of time (and money) to make sure no one is pirating his music. A new Twitter account though is making fans wonder if he’s finally ready to embrace the World Wide Web.
His Purpleness is back and ready to rock.
As the credits rolled on the show, Prince and his band began to play “The Dance Electric,” a odd choice that sent fans into a frenzy. Prince wrote the song for his former bass player André Cymone’s solo album in 1985.
Prince took the stage Wednesday night to complete a three-night residency at the United Center, dubbed “Welcome 2 Chicago,” and while the reviews have been positive (Tuesday night’s show), and rather negative (the first show of residency Monday night), the “Purple One” wanted to make sure the Chicago stop was remembered for all the right reasons.
