Prince – ‘The Breakdown’

A new tune from his Purpleness.

I haven’t been that mad about the tunes Prince has been putting out with 3rdEyeGirl, but ‘The Breakdown’ is beautiful. You can listen to it over on Stereogum.

Prince really is at his finest when he slows it down, in my opinion. I just love the tempo of this, the beefy bass guitar in the chorus, the random laser noises. Into it.

He’s also re-signed with Warner (!!) and will reissue an expanded version of ‘Purple Rain’ upon the record’s 30th anniversary.
