It's great that you are getting thoughts from this paragraph as well as from our argument made at this place.
Here is info on the track:
We have been told multiple times that there was a a video shot for "Live Out Loud" (L.O.L.) and would be available on 3rdEyeGirl.com, hopefully soon.
For now, you can buy the single for 88 cents on 3rdEyeGirl.com!
When people surrender their expectations of what they were expecting, they will enjoy it more. We are all part of this journey. When people understand that it is about Living Out Loud for the greater good, stronger and stronger, no more watching the world through tears....then U can face the truth and....Live. Out. Loud.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Much Love 2 Donna, Hannah, Ida and U......-3rdEyeGirl
I am a little late and just hearing the song. I love the lyrics and the music for the song. It is definitely a feel good song and you can tell that Prince and Liv had some fun putting it together. I am glad that Prince is embracing the internet and I am excited that he is working with others as well. We all want to hear Prince sing every song and there is no doubt that he would have rocked this song as well, but I appreciate that he is working with others. I hope we hear more from Liv Warfield and 3rdEyeGirl. Hats off Prince!
In reply to CherylM: 'CherylM', it looks like we're on the same page. It would be interesting to hear what Liv's inspiration was, behind the lyrics for L.O.L., plus although Liv didn't sing that song, she definitely has a powerful voice, as witnessed seeing her perform as one of Prince's trio of backup singers.
I want to hear more from Liv. I agree she should be on a spree cast! Is she working on her own music? Prince should put her out.
Hey J, It would be cool if you have Liv Warfield as a guest on your next Spreecast show, to discuss what inspired her to write the lyrics to L.O.L.
digging the song.. eye only wish Prince was singing lead... eye love the words and melody.. eye would pay 4 this song
Prince, I love that you are giving us new music and a variety including those talented artists associated with you. Keep doing what you're doing...cause no one can do it like you,,,truly.
Love that this was written by Liv Warfield. I dig it. so far 8/8 with 3rdEyeGirl.com 2013 is just wOw so far! Hey Nosey!
when are people going to wake up. A 54 year old man is still playing games with people who put money in his pocket, and you guys fall for it every single time. Guessing, guessing, guessing. Everything that's released is because HE want's it to be, or it would not be. Stop falling for this barnyard epithet. And Prince. Stop it, and just play and release the music for the people who have made you RICH. Be thankful, and show us some respect. Your head is big enough.Grow up. You are no Miles Davis, but you are the most talented musician of the last 30+ years. Can't you be humble?
I LOVE Live Out Loud! Kudos to Liv and the band. Thanks Prince for highlighting the bad ass women around you!!!!
Go Liv and 3rdey3girl! A great feel good song! I hope Liv can put out some new music it has been a while and she has talent. I didn't know she was a writer, but I saw her perform and the girl brings it. I guess that is what a good mentor will do. Thanks!
I paid for this, as I did the previous tracks, but this one never showed up in my downloads and I have never received email receipts for any of my purchases...whoever is behind the scenes isn't fixing it either after numerous emails....boo...make sure you let Paypal re-route you back to the site and download immediately or you may NEVER get your music, it seems... :( Odd, all of my other tracks are still there, to download again, but not Live Out Loud...seems they have bugs to fix bugs to fix....is it that hard to simply check to see I paid and add it onto my list of available downloads? Really?
"When people surrender their expectations of what they were expecting, they will enjoy it more." I don't know from where that line of sophomoric logic emanates, but it is stupid enough for me to ignore this song.
I like this song a lot. Congrats to Liv and that is great that Prince is giving his band members to shine. I think 3rdEyeGirl should be on the road with Prince but Prince & NPG is where its at. I wouldn't mind seeing more from Liv. I think she should another album. No offense to the other girls, but she has a beautiful tone and seems likeable.
I like the music, which is written by Prince. However, I don't particularly appreciate the lyrics written by Liv Warfield. They are clunky and embarassing in places and detract from my enjoyment of the song. I've loved and purchased all the other 3rdeyegirl content, but I'll be avoiding this. It's an average pop/rock song that seems aimed at the teen market. I hope the rest of the 3rdeyegirl project (there are reportedly 14 songs already recorded) is more like 'Screwdriver' and less like 'LOL'. As aforementioned, I've felt very positive and grateful for all the material available on 3rdeyegirl up until now. However, 'LOL' is a direction I'm not at all interested in or excited by.
Thanks for adding the song info, Doc. That's the one thing I always miss when not having a CD ... the info on who plays what instrument and who wrote the song. While it does not spoil my listening pleasure if I don't know, I still prefer having this info. So I appreciate it very much! Now we know that this song is a great collaboration ... and rather unusual among the recent Prince material - lyrics written by Liv, music by Prince, and the girls on lead vocals - I like the result very much! This is a song that would grab my attention if heard on the radio without knowing who it comes from. :)
Another great track with a beautiful and uplifting message. I always wonder about all the "experts" on prince.org who'd done this track so much better than Prince.
thanks doc for sharing the song. couldn't get it from jester. wow lucky guy. i finally get to hear something. don't know how to download. will have to go to best buy. for the song a lot of fun & different. this song belongs here in los angeles on the world famous KROQ radio & beating the guys. oh so 80's when we had go's go's, bangles etc. one to chase the guy bands. that's why i was watching the grammy's before prince was to be on. love the alternative music & glad on nominations. PRINCE tour with girls it will be so much fun. you robbed us of the REBELS. still have hope. prince can do 2 tours, 1 with the girls & the other with bigger band, though horns do drown out & sometimes singers. love the variety hearing so far. can hardly wait till next time. thanks again. p.s. nice to see ida out front.
I'm the ANONYMOUS from B4: The more I think about it, the more it makes sense. Prince has set up 3rdeyegirl.com more to introduce his all new side project. The all girl group called 3rd Eye Girl with Hannah, Ida and Donna. If so, it’s a brilliant move. Now, he needs to produce a full record and let them fly while he focuses on HIS music with a full band and HIS website 20p1nc3.com I’m really not feeling Prince having the three ladies back him up on the road. Prince has always had a larger, more multi-ethnic band. Think The Revolution or the various NPG incarnations. To me, Prince with Hannah, Ida and Donna isn’t doing too much for me. Prince went that route back in “The Undertaker” daze, meaning the stripped down band sound with Sonny T on bass and Michael B on drums. Back then, Prince didn’t need to give off any guitar and solo chores to another guitarist as HE was savvy enough to do it all on his own. While I’m not downplaying Donna’s chops on the guitar, I think 3rd Eye Girl are better served in an Andy Allo kinda way meaning a stand alone female driven band. It was cute and clever for Prince to have an all female band backing him for a moment, but in the end, it’s not ENOUGH of a band sound that showcases all levels of the Prince sound, from ballads to funk to rock to pop to groove. For THAT, Prince needs a much larger, more diverse band in instrument, style, gender and race.
It's not what I was expecting but it's growing on me. Is this gonna be Prince's new protege project? So is 3rdeyegirl the name of the 3 piece girl band? I'm looking forward to seeing where this leads......
Thanks 3rdeyegirl for the share, shoutout to Jester too. Really like the lead vocal, but Prince's backing vox not so much. First one I'm passing one, it sounds like a tampon ad - cue splashing about at the beach, horseriding, and playing with puppies at the park. It's been a fun couple of months, I'm optimistic for next time. Also add positive move on 3rdeyegirl.com to include jpeg on the product page for the song , if they can just add the song details like Doc has graciously provided for all the releases..... of course only after Doc has given us the exclusive on the spreecast. :)
This grows and grows...very catchy.... Really has a summer festival vibe about it. Prince has a hit on his hands....one that can reach the mainstream again too......if he'll deal with the distribution to the non hardcore....ie promote it and Itunes it. It's great to have an uptempo song again, he used to do a lot of those in the 80s....but hasn't so much of late...it's great.
Wow, what a fantastic song! I love the vibe and the vocals, everything. Fun from start to finish. It makes me very interested to see where all of this goes from here. Thank you Doc, Jester, 3rdEyeGirl and Prince for letting us hear this great new track!
Good song. Now, what Prince needs to do, is now that he's fully introduced the band to the world, he needs to collaborate with them and produce a full album of their music, call the band 3rd Eye Girl, put it out and let them go out into the world and fly like a butterfly WITHOUT HIM, while HE goes out and gets a full band like all the times before, leaving the idea of a trio of women backing him up behind.
Thanks 4 the song Prince. Giving it free 2 everyone is awesome!!! Also, I believe that is Hannah singing and it is DEFINITELY PRINCE with backing vocals!!! All my love 2 U sir!!! Thanks again Doc 4 sharing.
So glad Prince finally decided to go with someone else to release this song to the masses that is humble, positive and has a real passion for his music. "It sure sounds like Prince is backing the girls"...ya think??? Quite obvious it's him
"Usually I am quiet" - I have this on repeat! Prince and 3rdeyegirl did their thing on this track!!! Powerful lyrics. I am so inspired by this song. Keep it coming!!!!!
I have come to the conclusion 3RD EYE GIRL is the new girl band. I have enjoyed the way they have been introduced. This song is good and it kind of has a Neon Trees vibe and sound to it.
I really like this song! Hannah (I think?) has a great voice! Of course I also always prefer to hear every Prince song with HIS vocals (because that's what makes a great song perfect), but I still do like this very much! Thanks for the FREE goodie, 3rdEyeGirl. :)
This is a solid song. Of course, we want to hear Prince sing everything, but this is a fun song. It's great to see that Prince is working with other Artists Andy now 3rdeyegirl! I would love to see him do some soulful now. Prince get this music out to the masses it shouldn't stay underground.
There is no one more deserving here on earth to deliver this "MasterPiece" than Jester..........Congrats bro.........
