Prince is about to embark on his "Welcome 2 Canada" tour and in advance, he has released a new song "Extraloveable" now on sale through I-Tunes Canada.

Don't you wanna take a bath with Prince?

The song clocks in at just 5 minutes long and features the lovely and talented Andy Allo (&Y) and for the hardcore Prince fan, this song is very intriguing.

"Extraloveable" was originally recorded in the early 80's by Prince and is one of his most popular bootlegged songs of all time.  It seems Prince is going through his vault at his recording studios, Paisley Park, for material and surprising many fans who thought this song would never be released.

The song has been newly recorded this year so I guess you can call it "Extraloveable 2011" if you want.

The song is being released by Universal Music Group in Canada, however, we feel it is through Live Nation who struck the deal for Prince.

Prince must have major love for the Canadian fans to release something like this before his tour kicks off there.  Funky!

Check out a sample of the track below:

  1. I love it! But, I prefer also the Original version, sorry Prince :(
    This one is less original than the old one..
    So exciting to hear this though, can’t wait to hear the full song – but unfortunately I’m not in Canada :(

  2. The new version has to grow on me but I do love the original version but when do NYC get some that purple funk

  3. I prefer also the Original version !
    Sorry Folks ! The 2011 version is less original than the old one …

  4. It’s hard to judge this by so short a sample. But think it sounds really good. Can’t wait to hear the whole song. The original is a masterpiece and will be hard to beat.

  5. remaster and release the original – this cheesy revamp just doesnt cut it!!! Prince why oh why!!!!

  6. U can’t improve on perfection and that was what the original was….so as The Time would say “release it…..!”

  7. I’m afraid this has been butchered and over produced and has lost all the excitement and speed…..
    Please remaster the original and release that……

  8. Gimme the old version,i’m missing the lin on this one.

  9. So how wise is it, to release this in Canada in the week before the European release of the Dance 4 Me remixes on the Purple Music label?

  10. The original cannot be categorized as a “funky” record… I prefer the original also, but it has nothing to do with incorrect terminology…

  11. This should have been left alone. Be interested to hear what people who are hearing it for the first time think?

    Mind you, I think I just like the first take of things as ‘The Dance’ I always think that the first version is so different

  12. Loved the original song, but since this ins one of my favorite songs I love to see it re-recorded. Love it.

  13. Doesn’t get better then he original……

    Why not just release the old stuff. Easy money, happy fans

  14. slowed it down too much

  15. canadian iTunes. ? What about europe, Germany? I want it too!

  16. I prefer the original version of the song. Sorry Prince. :(

  17. This sample is amazing!!
    Can’t wait to hear the full song…but I’m not in Canada…
    So exciting to hear this though – the quality is superb, the funk and minneapolis sound is strong, and his voice is sounding great.
    So much of the longed for 80’s sound is happening now with the original 7ven, fdeluxe, Prince etc…there should be nothing but appreciation for what’s going on right now. Music just doesn’t sound like this anymore!

  19. From the first moment I heard “Extraloveable” I loved it! It quickly became a coined term for me and I had hoped that he would release it but no necessarily re-record it!The original cannot be outdone!Thanks for the thought & a little extralove Princey but I’m gonna hold onto the original version.

  20. I wish I had never listened to that. Where did all the funk go??

  21. yeah, give me the old version with poor sound quality any day over this track

  22. WOW, I love this!! How exciting and such amazing quality!
    Must hear it in full…but am not in Canada…

  23. damn he really took the funk out of that track, why did he go and rerecord this?????!!!! I prefer the original version.

    the great thing about this song is that lyrically its nasty..a good dirty little nasty Prince song does the body good every now and again

  24. Prince is Extralovable & so are you Doc! Old school funk …buying it .

  25. thanks doc funk so exciting hope he puts it up on us itunes as well
