Prince gave a Frnch radio station a sample of a new song entitled "Rich Friends" and said it would be from 20Ten Deluxe edition.  20Ten was previously available in newspapers where he was touring earlier this year.

No word if this edition of 20Tenwill make it's way to the US or not. 

For now, enjoy listening to what we have of the track below and thanks to a French Prince fan site for the heads up n hooking us up.

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

What do you think?  It's only 20 seconds so hopefully no one is saying it's "Purple Rain" part deux.-Dr.FB

The waves of gravity force crash upon the minds of they unaware while sleeping then the flesh of the beast they believe to be fastionable dress. Souls lost as the world ends and the planet turns and the sun spits the fire shown held by the five finger dragon. Five being the 1/5th length of the Sun Stone lost tick of the larger clock. That all written within plan site of they with eyes to see the truth, and they that hear it know. But those without the knowledge of the truth get dragged down by the flesh of the beast into the underwaters of so called "unconsciousness". The Un not being of the one that sees all consciousness connects to the one that produces the consciousness of the all. And the secrets of the thief are written on the digital walls in shadow so that upon the breaking of the glory of the day come no trace will be found. UNless you count that written upon the eye and ear of the spiritual mind unseen by they that did sink off the boat unmanned. Rich and Friend, do these words hold meaning? I've yet to hear anything of meaning. If I did, maybe I'd be less mean.

Couldn't sleep been up since around 3. Thought about this one a bit, like it? sure Im one of those who pretty much loves everything he does. Autobiographical? like so many?? proly a jokesh type thing QuadAmirAli. Sad though, and why trust is pretty tricky. I was bored n couldn't get back to sleep and began to look at things that r worthless on the ORG. *FAIL* and omg and I never say that, Ive never posted there, only here n youtube, but reading certain things I can tell who a few ppl r and wow keeping ppl at arms length I guess I understand now and wow some of it is really old, I'm sooo late... lol hey but "When it all falls down" Go work out now!

From what little I heard, it sounds cool, but definitely not that "hit" we all believe he is capable of. I wonder if WB will b pushing the 20Ten Deluxe project? Thanks for sharing!

Same kind of vibe as Sticky Like Glue. 20Ten was probably his most consistent, exciting effort in the last ten years or so, so I'm looking forward to this. Here's hoping that it's going to be a full cased, liner noted affair, released worldwide! Funk for all!

So far the snippet sounds good. "Rich Friends" has that "Willing and Able" vibe...funk, falsetto and gospel wrapped into one. In other words..."chu'ch." Reminds me of when the Steeles did backing vocals for Prince back in the 90s.
