Andre Cymone has released a video for "Rock & Roll" from his latest album "The Stone" which you can purchase here!
Diagnosis: Thanks for the vinyl Andre!
Andre Cymone will be releasing his new album "The Stone" This Tuesday February 18th. We are WORLD PREMIERING "IF Not For You" from the upcoming album.
On his new album, The Stone, Cymone embraced a more direct musical vocabulary, cutting the tracks live in the studio with his band. “I feel connected with the artists who came before me, people like Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Bob Dylan and the Beatles, people who were saying things and reaching people, and I feel a responsibility to live up to that standard.” Both expansive and intimate, The Stone is classic rock n’ roll.
Andre had this to tell us EXCLUSIVELY about "If Not For You" and why he wanted to share it on Valentine's Day:
This is the song on my album that celebrates love, so it seems appropriate for today. let's remember to celebrate those we love today and every day.
I also have to say that this album would not be possible if not for all of you who wondered and waited

Thank you Andre for sharing the track here before anywhere else!-DocFB
Fresh off of playing "Purple Rain" with PRINCE & 3rdEyeGirl on Saturday, former "Revolution" member Bobby Z. joined us on spreecast with myself & Seth Everett. That's not all. Andre Cymone joined us as well to talk about the early days of PRINCE and the Minneapolis Sound!
Bobby shared his experience of playing with PRINCE again and we had Andre on to talk about his song "My Best Friend" dedicated to his mother Bernadette Anderson.
Bobby went to say how much Mrs. Anderson meant to everyone and then the stories of the infamous basement and rehearsal jams started. Epic.
Make sure to catch all the action above!
We want to thank Bobby Z., Andre, U, and PRINCE for this amazing show.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Now...about those plastic pants....
Andre Cymone has released a new single entitled "My Best Friend" which he has dedicated to his mother, Bernadette Anderson.
Andre sent me this message to share:
"Today is my mothers birthday and I wanted to do something for her. It's just a demo but today felt like the right day."
I caught up with Andre after 3rdEyeGirl's show in Anaheim a couple of weeks back and Andre was in a great and joking mood.
I'm not going to go into history, but Bernadette Anderson played an important part in many people's lives in Minneapolis. If Andre or others wish to share that story, it is up to them. For now, enjoy "My Best Friend" a demo by Andre Cymone, dedicated to his mother, Bernadette Anderson.-DocFB
