Prince's new single "Rock & Roll Love Affair" has entered the charts before it's official release overseas November 2nd.
It has entered the German Top 300 Charts at number 184 and has been sent today to over 200 radio programmers all over Germany so the chart position should increase within a few days. Germany's biggest radio station SWR3 has the song in heavy rotation.
In Italy, the response has been rather positive and is being sent to over 300 radio and media networks there today.
In France, the adds have been somewhat slow, which is surprising, with about a 100 stations playing the song. That should increase shortly.
In Switzerland, Radio 1 was playing the song every 2 and a half hours along with other stations over there playing the song at least 3 times a day.
Expect more attention from music blogs and other media outlets in the next week when it concerns the song and the release on Purple Music November 2nd, 2012.
As of this writing, we do not know about a US release or an Itunes release.-DocFB

"One Track Mind" is the latest from Mayer Hawthorne. He is having a little bit of a love affair with a mannequin. Or maybe it's Gweneth Paltrow. I get those 2 confused every now and then.
The song is short but sweet and it's kind of cool. Mayer Hawthorne is touring Europe from now til the end of May.
Let me know what you think of "One Track Mind" by Mayer Hawthorne. -Dr.FB
