Prince, this year’s Billboard Icon, has debuted a song off his new album with proteges 3rd Eye Girl, tentatively titled Plectrum Electrum. “FIXURLIFEUP” is more rock-oriented than, say, “1999,” although Prince’s spoken word may as well be a thesis statement to his entire career. “Don’t worry about what the crowd does, just worry about being what you love,” he says, before he wields a guitar solo to funky bass.
CBC Canada premiered “FIXURLIFEUP” on Friday, in time for tonight’s Live Out Loud tour launch party in Vancouver. According to music news website Dr. Funkenberry, Prince will make a brief appearance so that he and 3rd Eye Girl could perform songs off Plectrum Electrum. Hear “FIXURLIFEUP” at CBC, then check out a brief jam session featuring Prince and 3rd Eye Girl after the jump.
