"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.
PRINCE will be releasing 2 new albums, "ART OFFICIAL AGE" and his album with 3RDEYEGIRL "PLECTRUMELECTRUM" on September 30th. Both albums will be released by Warner Bros. Records. You can also win a chance to see PRINCE perform at PAISLEY PARK in Minneapolis sometime in October.
You get one entry per-preorder for the Paisley Park Concert in October.
The announcement was made today on Good Morning America although the digital campaign started after midnight on the East Coast with iTunes providing a set list for both albums and WB rolling out the pre-order web sites.
The Paisley Park concert contest is for U.S. residents only.
Don't forget to watch the PRINCE show this Wed on "ART OFFICIAL AGE", "PLECTRUMELECTRUM" and more!

The tweet said to check 3RDEYEGIRL's Twitter account for more details.
We will update this post as more info becomes available.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Can someone bring a notepad n report for us please?
Rita Ora has released her single entitled "Single Most Amazing" for her ad as the new face of Cavalli and the tune might have a touch of "Purple" on it.
The original ad had just some music behind it, not Rita's.
Shortly after, a different video synched with "Single Most Amazing" came out.
Rita Orta tweeted out the link having Prince attached to the music and then 3RDEYEGIRL tweeted out the link as well.

Rita has spoken before that she has recorded with PRINCE for her upcoming album and one of the songs that Ora spoke about was "Champagne Kisses" with Prince and produced by Joshua Welton, not "Single Most Amazing". We have tried to confirm Prince's involvement with his camp but have heard nothing back but the speculation has already begun.-DocFB
Diagnosis: "Champagne Kisses" was originally entitled "U Will B" which was performed live and only existed in demo format after the live performances we are told.
The long awaited London shows have been announced for PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL! We told you when the Hit & Run Part II started there would be London shows but it seems we were doubted. Well...doubt no more!
On June 4th, 3RDEYEGIRL will take the stage at the London Roundhouse 2 times that night.
Tickets will be £75/£85-DocFB
Diagnosis: If you are in London, be there....or else you could end up like our friend below...
PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL just opened up their Hit & Run Part II UK tour in Birmingham playing a plethora of hits along with "What's My Name" a hardcore fan hit and the unreleased "Electric Intercourse" and "Empty Room".
It is being reported that during "Electric Intercourse" he would just say "Electric" over again but with no intercourse. Hmm.
I just stood 15 feet from Prince as he sang ELECTRIC INTERCOURSE for the first time in 30 years. What is life?

The show was also filmed professionally with multi-cameras via various comments on the Facebook fan page.
Everyday I'm reminded more and more of why I love @3RDEYEGIRL so much

Just got this tidbit of info sent our way:
3RDEYEGIRL arrived yesterday at Paisley Park and the 1st full rehearsal for the UK shows and more is scheduled for Saturday afternoon!
Local funk band M.P.L.S. (#MPLS) will be jamming at the sound stage of Paisley Park After Dark Saturday night for $30.00. PRINCE and 3RDEYEGIRL will be in attendance and after will be playing NEW music and partying!-DocFB
Diagnosis: There is a lot to be thankful for in 2014. From the new music, the NEW GIRL takeover, the London HIT AND RUN takeover, the Arsenio takeover, magazine covers (Mojo and the New Essence mag you gotta pick up), Liv Warfield's The Unexpected, the announcement of NPG MUSIC PUBLISHING, the annoucement of new music to be released on Warner Bros. plus the remasters of his Warner Bros. catalog including the 30th anniversary of "Purple Rain" this year and owning ALL of the WB masters, plus even more projects are in the works! 2014 is shaping up to be a brand new chapter in already epic career! We are not even at the half way point yet!
PRINCE wasn't playing when he said he would be returning to the UK/London after simply taking over there for at least a month with surprise shows all over London. There has already been 4 shows announced that will go on sale Friday.
http://www.ticketmaster.co.uk/ and http://www.gigsandtours.com/ already have the shows listed. The news broke over here in the U.S. around 3 in the morning my time and I reached out to confirm the story that The Guardian broke, figuring Prince's people would still be up. Still no response but fairly obvious the icon is coming back!
Only UK dates have been announced...so far. Leaving it as London/UK as more dates will be announced.
There is a lot of room for shows to be added just between the dates and who knows how long he will be out there this time?-DocFB
Diagnosis: Make sure not to miss next week's PRINCE Spreecast where we will be discussing the UK dates and more! We might have to do a special UK Spreecast again in May!
This weekend, PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL performed an abbreviated set at Paisley Park After Dark where the pop icon revealed the artwork for "PLECTRUMELECTRUM" on vinyl. Today on PRINCE's Instagram, the cover and vinyl were posted.
There still is no release date but it appears to be coming soon.
