“FUNKNROLL” The Official Lyrics! Did PRINCE Really Say…?? Listen Now!

PRINCE ART OFFICIAL AGE

"FUNKNROLL" the latest "club-banger" has been released from PRINCE. The song will be featured on "Art Official Age" and "PLECTREMELECTRUM" the debut album from 3RDEYEGIRL. Both albums will be released on 9/30.

The song has already been featured in NFL pre-game shows. Could that be where the video will world premiere? Hmm.

The Dallas Cowboys usually have the highest rated games on Sunday Night Football and will be playing the New Orleans Saints. Fact: Sunday Night Football is the most watched live event week after week with less DVR activity than any other TV show except for NFL playoffs and the Super Bowl. "New Girl" anyone?

When the song was being performed last year, we were sent the official lyrics from Paisley Park.

April Fool's was 18 days ago so the news of PRINCE reaching a new deal with WARNER BROS Records is no joke!!! The news was sent out to via email and PR early this morning.

Yes, PRINCE has struck a deal with Warner Bros records to release remasters starting with a deluxe version of "PURPLE RAIN" just in time for the 30th anniversary of the album and film.

The global deal also includes the Prince albums "Controversy", "Dirty Mind", and "1999" along with others in the Warner Bros. Prince catalog.

"A brand-new studio album is on the way and both Warner Bros Records and Eye are quite pleased with the results of the negotiations and look forward to a fruitful working relationship,"-Prince

We are also very excited about the release of new and re-mastered music from one of his greatest masterpieces."-Warner Bros. Records chairman and CEO Cameron Strang
