Prince Shreds In “Screw Driver”: Watch The Lyric Video

Prince has dropped the lyric video for new track “Screw Driver,” and it’s the most rockin’ offering from his handful of new stuff (certainly more so than “Rock and Roll Love Affair”). Singing a bit like Dave Pirner from Soul Asylum (ya know, “Runaway Train”…remember?), the Purple One unleashes some serious guitar pyrotechnics throughout, and a throaty wail at the halfway point.

When Prince does show up in the video, he’s wearing a spirit hood, flanked by an all-female band. By the way, the kick drums have the same three-eyed logo as the Twitter account that’s been “leaking” Prince material in recent weeks, so it looks like our (read: everyone’s) collusion hunch was right.
