PRINCE’s new song “Rock & Roll Love Affair” debuted on an Iheart Radio station in Chicago this morning.

    Prince is unbelievably gifted and inspired me so so much to be myself and trust my inner voice .I listened to his music nonstop for 10 years.All the comments I read here have a point but we know Prince gotta follow what he’s feeling .

    Prince always moved forward and wrote the most amazing lyrics i’ve ever heard but now I’d like him to maybe do instrumental work,film soundtracks, work with BJORK and Linda perry and FOO FIGHTERS AND WHITE STRIPES..I DUNNO JUST EXPERIMENT AND INNOVATE and let quality take place of quantity.And get a younger band of Friday night recession hating demons who want to play to they …..x

    Interesting Posts…

    It seems there is a common thread here. I agree that he needs to develop as an artist and i appreciate that. The problem I have, is this arrogance of ‘ I don’t really listen to others output because I make music myself’ …there is a huge arrogance and ego and therefore I think critic is absolutely justified. I’m known to my friends as a big fan but all I’ve heard over the last few years is how crap his recent output is! I just want to sit them in front of livesexy and make them see what he’s capable of!!
    It’s not about wanting his old output, it’s the confusion of not recognizing that genius
    anymore . Yes he’s being very clever with how he makes money but I sort of feel cheated. ….

    Why doesnt anybody ever consider that two divorces and the death of a baby can change a person? Prince has endured all this while in dispute with WB. Of course his music isn’t going to be the same. How can he write the when every hope he had for the future has been crush. Selfish fans need to stop thinking Prince is just making songs to please them and try understanding he’s doing it to recapture his own joy.

    The best thing Prince could do right now is to tour with the Revolution. All this Tiny over quantised production is really letting him down. For me (a fan since 85) he’s lost the soul in his music, it just sounds like music churned of a production line, anyone who’s heard the original version of Extra Loveable would know what I’m talking about compered to that terrible remix from last year.

    For 20 years, I am a fan of Prince. Last year he was in Germany and I was very disappointed in his show and his love for the fans. He is no longer the old man. This song is a compilation of old songs, nothing new. I think his time is over. I’ll keep him in my memory but do not go to one of his concerts in the future …. He is a genius but he’s tired and does not want more!

    One other thing. I can only speak for myself here but I don’t LONG for the Prince of old. Not one bit.

    We have plenty that I can revisit, enjoy like anybody, any music lover that discovers old music or revisits an old album just because it was so great, from any favorite artists of theirs.

    I’m totally content with whats out there. I’m just not the audience for this post-WB/JW Prince. Its not the same artist, a perfect Gemini.

    To Anthony Slate:

    Yeah, yeah, yeah. I got it. I GOT IT… if I haven’t done the same, I can’t talk shit. Whatever.

    You know you like the “thing of the past”, you know that made you a fan, I don’t long for that period. Its something I revisit like I revisit many an old song.

    Prince is certainly stuck in the past then according to your fam-logic. He’s all about a 70’s kind of vibe, an awful translation and step backward re-interpretation of the 70’s with him name dropping Betty Davis, Miles Davis’ wife in the 70’s and her music.

    I honestly, can totally see artistic growth in many recording artists, evolutions that are marvelous and definitely you can see that from Prince’s early demo’s to his WB early work and the growth we saw from say DM to Parade, as an example. But this dude, is a de-evolution. Its a bubbling of something… its a simmer.

    Yeah, consistent to where Prince is now, which has been consistently the same in the last 10 years. I don’t get it, I don’t see where you see GROWTH. The song sounds like something off of Musicology or ONA or 2 ATEN, uh I mean… 2OTEN…

    Yes he’s making major paper, he’s not interested ONE bit off of sharing “the lion’s share” of profits with record companies. He either gets paid upfront for a new full album, selling it direct to newspapers and other media or gets upfront paid before selling seats and leaves it all up to promoters, venues to promote what they invested in. Which is clever, got to hand it to him. But the slightly pathetic part of it, is you, the fam, doesn’t get its not you who’s sending paper unless you buy tickets direct. With that 2OTAN album, he didn’t need fans or fams like you to make a million sales. Think about it.

    In my view, I think Prince adopted Hip Hop/New Jack/Rap elements into his music because HE knew that he was in danger of being viewed as dated. Gett Off, may have been the first attempt at staying relevant.

    Lastly, Prince is responsible for his legacy. What can we do? Nothing. Prince pretty much stated on The View he has NO intention of releasing songs from the Vault and honestly I think that really looks like he’s saying he don’t even care about the official stuff he did with Warner Bros. So FORGET proper remasters and special editions. Because this Christian/JW rock star is releasing only new stuff that sort of gets forgotten about, for YOU.

    When an artist with his band can draw from a bank of 300 songs for a worldwide tour, reconfigure and improvise those songs any kinda way at will and play with both spontaneity and precision after over 30 years of creating music said artist is really above petty criticism from anybody unless they have accomplished the same thing and have the same abilities. At this point Prince can do what he feels like doing; it’s not about the strength of 1 song, it’s about the body of work. To all the nostalgic people, the 80’s and the Revolution are a thing of the past and people who long for that period obviously have no understanding of artistic growth and evolution. Miles Davis’ first great quintet could have never played on ‘Bitches Brew’ or ‘On the Corner’.
    Personally, i like the new song and after reading the Chicago Tribune article find the song to be very consistent to where Prince is right now. In closing, i’ll offer this: remember when people thought Prince was crazy for going independent and look where the music industry is almost 20 years later. Prince is coasting, having fun, making major paper(after each show as opposed to waiting on royalty checks), still creating new music and is free to do whatever he chooses. He’s ahead of the curve and his career is far from over. Independence is really like the fountain of youth as far as the music business goes; it truly gives people freedom, longevity and greatly expands their monetary parameters whereas the recording industry of the past slaps an expiration date on the artist, their creativity and their legacy.

    My first impression of this track is that he wants so badly to be the “good witness” but u can hear the “sinner” come out just a bit… i have been a prince fan since 1979, yup that long.. and i know that he has had a change of heart as far as his religeous views , and i know that many fans want to hear the old prince but we have to face the facts… Prince isnt as young as he once was, and i think that at his age he needs and wants to take a different road… and i can honestly say, “i will come along for the ride” peace P)+>

    I LOVE IT! The simplicity of mixing past tunes harmonic tones that heals one soul. The beautiful lyrics when your with life lessons… theirs space for what you want when your heart is open wide. Says it all.

    Nobody in their right mind is complaining because they long for the Prince of old. We’re complaining because we know the Prince of NOW is capable of so much more. H’e selling us -and perhaps most importantly, himself -short.

    I believe that just as a parent, good friend, or family member can be honest and still love or enjoy you, so can admires of Prince. I think we know his potential, especially those who have been long time admirers of his music beyond “the hits”, and as those who believe in him and his music, it disappoints us to see him not doing what we know he can. We want to see his talents displayed, not just to us, but for many who either do not know, or who themselves, have not seen this man tear S*&^ up, cause that’ WAS his style. We believe in you Prince, but c’mon baby, what’s up with this stuff? This is NOT the Prince that knocked my socks off, made me cream my jeans, and had me running to the record store anytime a new album or song hit the radio. So YES, lets be honest, and NOT fanantics who think Prince could never do no wrong when it comes to music. For the Prince we know, this song IS crap. And yes, I take into consideration how much work it takes for the average person to come up with lyrics, melody, arrangement, etc. But for Prince, this is something he picked out of his teeth and threw our way. For having ROCK in the title, I’m expecting you to funk me Hard, brutha. And for it being by Prince. I’m expecting to have the taste funked out of my mouth. Prince, can you relate? This? This is, well….a celibate friend pretending not to know it, when he blows it in my eye. He just tossed this mess our way.
