Earlier this month, PRINCE had all his music pulled from Spotify leaving TIDAL as the only streaming service carrying his music. This morning, Spotify released the new song "STARE" exclusively on Spotify.
As of right now, "STARE" is the only song by the music icon Spotify has. The streaming service is hoping that changes soon but for now they are happy to debut Prince's latest serving of funk.
"STARE" starts off with a funky base line and a sultry "Oh baby" then talking about liking you to stare talking about used to going on stage in underwear, an ode to the classic "Dirty Mind" album. He even throws in a sample of his #1 song "Kiss" as well. Can you say "Sexy Dancer" as well?
"STARE" was promoted earlier this year as being from an upcoming project entitled "FREEYOURSELF" which Prince teased from his official Twitter account. No word if this project is still in the mix or it will appear on "HITNRUN" which his band 3RDEYEGIRL told BBC Radio last week is a new album that Prince has finished and has ready to go. It is pure SPECULATION by us but it is perfectly feasible for most talented man in music to release two new albums which he did last year with "Art Official Age" and "PLECTRUMELECTRUM".-DocFB
Diagnosis: During that interview with BBC Radio, 3RDEYEGIRL said they were looking for ways to release the "HITNRUN" project. Perhaps Spotify might be one of their ways of distribution and are testing the waters. Interesting times to be a music fan right now, especially of the FUNK variety. Keep on Staring!
It appears a new PRINCE album entitled "HITNRUN" is about to come out. 3RDEYEGIRL band members appeared on BBC6 radio this morning with details.
In a recorded phone interview, 3RDEYEGIRL drummer Hannah Welton talks about "This Could Be Us" (a new version from his previous Art Official Age album) produced by Joshua Welton. Hannah also describes "A "1,000 Hugs & Kisses" which will be on "The Hit & Run" album as "a super, slow jam, dope feel good love song."

"Super hardcore Prince fans that know every song he's ever recorded - we refer to them as 'The Purple Collective' or 'The Purple Army' - this album is absolutely for them, because it's super funky.
"It's weird, there's a lot of experimental sound. It's just hit after hit and definitely caters to those fans who just love to hear what Prince has to say, rather than wanting to always hear that classic Purple Rain Prince sound."-3RDEYEGIRL
"Everything happens really fast here," the band said. "When an idea comes... it's translated to the musicians or whoever's working on it and then recorded and laid down relatively quick and then it's put out."
"It's definitely something we're thinking is going to be released right away, it's just not been nailed down yet.
"I can't wait for everybody to get this album, it's going to be amazing.
"It's definitely in discussion, so as soon as we get those details I'm sure we'll announce it and get it out to everybody immediately."
It appears Hannah's interview is just a snippet that BBC Radio has obtained and we can expect a longer version along with 3RDEYEGIRL members Donna Grantis and Ida Neilsen soon.
Also the album was played in it's entirety at a private party recently for the POTUS, President Barack Obama.
"HARDROCKLOVER" will also be featured on the new album and is the leadoff single.-DocFB
Diagnosis: When we have more info, we will keep U updated. STAY TUNED...If U are ready for the HITNRUN!!
PRINCE has released his video for "BALTIMORE" featuring ERYN ALLEN KANE via her youtube page today.
The video is directed by Ralston Smith.
You can purchase "Baltimore" on iTunes.
The video keeps things focused on what has been going on in Baltimore along with photos of PRINCE, 3RDEYEGIRL, LiV Warfield and others who participated in the Baltimore Rally for Peace.
Thanks to ERYN ALLEN KANE for sharing.-DocFB
Diagnosis: The video is more reminiscent of his video for "Money Don't Matter 2night" where there were 2 versions, one that featured him and one that did not with Spike Lee directing both. Also "Sign O The Times" which did not feature Prince in it at all with the focus being on the lyrics and the message.

The one n funky PRINCE has released a new song entitled "HARDROCKLOVER" today. The announcement came via his twitter account (PRINCE3EG) and posted to Soundcloud.
The music icon sings and speaks in his lower voice speaking of his "HARDROCKLOVER" from a R.E.M. (Rapid Eye Movement) dream and then seeing if he can make this woman scream.
A shout to Red Bull and Patron "Ain't No Rapper Trying To Be A Singer" reaps of shades of "Dead On It" from The Black Album from Prince along a light stab at Sade and Babyface over a blistering guitar solo that is either Prince or Donna Grantis getting it in from his band 3RDEYEGIRL.
Who says nothing good ever happens after midnight???!!
Prince promised new music was coming this summer and on the 1st of July, Prince has delivered in full force.-DocFB
