PRINCE has just released "Boyfriend" (Demo) for download on 3rdEyeGirl.com for 88 cents!
The song appeared on the site earlier today only to be taken down. We can only guess that it wasn't ready yet....or that the "Boyfriend" in question was over and had to hide somewhere until he was gone.
So download it at 3rdeyegirl.com
It is in Wav format which is higher quality but it seems people still want the wimpy mp3 instead.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Where will U be sleeping tonight?
Ok now I've listened about 8 times and Boyfriend IS the funk -- pleeeeaaaassssse, gotta hear this up close and live out loud.
Boyfriend is funky and Breakfast Can Wait....I don't know if everyone is keeping count, but, homeboy has let us hear 12 songs so far...Prince is superbad!
WAV is just fine, mp3 fans can use any free converter if they wish... Now I'm waiting for the other songs ^__^ And hope for a European tour ^______^
We don't want mp3, come on :p I like the new Boyfriend song, it has some great funky moments. Still, Prince is at his best when he does a jazz or rock album, so I'm waiting for those other 4 songs that will hopefully be up soon! They were mentioned in that Screwdriver poem... which could be a good sign.
I had no problem opening the file with ITunes on my computer. The only problem I had at first was that I didn't receive the email with the download links. However, once I realized that I could download the song from the My Account page on the 3rdeyegirl site, all was ok :)
Btw in France, when people pay money in advance 2 a farmer 2 produce his vegetables all year long, it's called AMAP. U know more about us (froggies ;) now ;)) Please pass the word 2 the funk farmer. Yace
Hi Doc, could u please suggest Prince to offer a double choice on his download websites. First option, u buy songs one by one (as it already exists). Second option, u buy a PACKAGE in advance (like 10 $ for 12 songs) and then u download in one click (keeping ur credit card in ur pocket ;). Wish him a good week-end too (same 4 u ;). Yace
WAV format much appreciated. Please Prince give a wav format also for breakfast can wait. I'd buy it again then !!
I got to ask, for those who have iTunes, how do I this song into my iTunes library? It's not accepting this wav file. I'm not computer savvy like that to know what to do lol. Thank y'all!
I'm feeling this song. It's a demo but so far it's pretty damn good just needs to be longer. Now for the way these songs are coming out, it's time for a CD of these songs man. I'll give Prince money and whatever but I need and want a CD. I want this on iTunes too. The world needs to know about all this great stuff coming from Prince, I want Prince to be accessible to EVERYONE not just the faithful few. I don't want to see Prince to limit himself and I feel like that's happening with this 3rdEyeGirl stuff but this is just my opinion.
My man sharing more music -- love U boyfriend -- call me sometime -- hugs and kisses and all the LOVE!!! Thanks Doc 4 info!!!
Yeah, more music! Who really cares what format as long as you can convert it to whatever you need? Of course, a higher bitrate will always be preferable to a lower one! The irritation comes when it is only playable on windows media or it has DRM!
Oh, yesssss I'm a happy girl tonight :) and WAV! :) I love that my man is in this kind of awesome playful mood....lock him in the studio and keep that upload pipeline open :)
Prince iz really playin funky bass on here......The hornz is funky & Princely vocal layering iz the icing on the cake...Its a complete "MasterPiece"...Can't wait 4 the Xtended version...By the way Prince where iz the xtended version of "Act Of God"???..I'll wait :-)
Could we please, please, please have some of these new Prince songs on PHYSICAL MEDIA???!!!??? Dammit.
"People still want mp3" ?! I can't believe it ! Wav is CD-quality, and if people really want to lower the quality they can easily convert the file in mp3... I'm really happy we can get something in .wav, so thank U Prince and please continue :-))
First of all thanks to the boss for making this download available in lossless format. The song me likes, bass is slammin'. Doc has tweeted that a longer version will be coming, even if that never materialises this 3 minute "Demo" will do me just fine.
@Doc, for the file format, it's super simple : CHOICE. They just 2 release each song in mp3 AND wav, and then each can pick up the desired format. it takes 2 mn to convert a song in any format from the source... Thanks 4 ur everlasting support Doc :).
Seriously people!!! WAV is the only way to go here and we should be happy for it as opposed to the MP3 format. Even at a bitrate of 320Kb/s it's still lacking, if you have a GOOD sound system and or your ears aren't shot!!! The WAV format is used on a regular audio CDs too. Only way you could get a better quality, maybe, would be to use a DVD or Blu-Ray Audio format and from my experiments with that (DVD audio at least)... it's a HUGE file (about 10 times the size of a WAV file) and then you'd have to convert it down anyway depending on how you want to play it! Peace!
It's quite easy to have a mp3 with a wav but the other way makes no sense. So wav is a good compromise for quality and conversion possibility.
