Producer Jamie Lewis just sent out a newsletter announcing that he and his partner have mixed a new amazing project for 3rdEyeGirl Featuring Prince! Wonder if he meant they mixed "FIXURLIFEUP" or something else?
Jamie Lewis has remixed and released on his own Purple Music label the singles and remixes of "Dance 4 Me", "2nite" (Bria Valente), "Rock & Roll Love Affair" and also put out "Screwdriver" earlier this year.
The announcement states Jamie and his studio partner Ben Muehlethaler are very proud to have gotten the honor to mixdown at the legendary Paisley Park Studios.
We are trying to contact Jamie to see if they are saying they mixed 3rdEyeGirl's latest single "FIXURLIFEUP", for remixes, or for the album tentatively titled "Plectrum Electrum" or for something else. The announcement says to click on it for it on iTunes and it takes you to the single for "FIXURLIFEUP". When we have more info, we will pass it on. It landed on our desk and thought we would pass it on.
Update: Jamie advised that he was at Paisley Park to mix "FIXURLIFEUP" and he was happy and honored to work at Paisley.
Our Jam Of The Week is "Screwdriver" by PRINCE featuring Hannah Ford, Donna Grantis, and Ida Neilsen. The song will be going for ads on radio overseas as Purple Music will be distributing the single.
UPDATE: Purple Music advised the single will be released digitally Feb. 4th on all known online stores.
Purple Music will let us know the release date and formats (picture disc) but advised it will be soon. Check out their fan page on Facebook. UPDATE: Purple Music adv will be a digital release only at this time...
"Screwdriver" debuted on PRINCE's new web site earlier this week with much fanfare. The web site 20PR1NC3.com debuted with an announcement by Billboard Magazine.
It has been a busy month for the music legend as several songs and videos of his have been put out by a twitter account with the handle of 3rdEyeGirl including "Chapter & Verse" which is a sound board recording from PRINCE's 6 sold out shows at the Dakota Jazz Club in his hometown of Minnesota.
If January is any indication of what 2013 has in store for PRINCE (Pr1NC3) fans, then it is going to be BIG! Along with the new web site and the Billboard cover, PRINCE will be receiving the Icon Award at this Year's Billboard Awards May 19th and will be attending a tribute in his honor at Carnegie Hall in March which is being put together by Questlove of The Roots.
"Screwdriver" is a rock number that we cannot wait to hear live. It is great that it will be getting played on radio stations overseas and getting a release over there. Here is hoping that a US distributor will step up to the plate soon that would enable the song to get radio play and a proper release out here.
Along with those hopes, why do I envision him going on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" soon and ripping this song to shreds right in front of Questlove? Oh well. A Doc can dream.
Thank you Jamie for the updated cover.
Enjoy the Jam Of The Week, PRINCE's "Screwdriver"!!!-DocFB

PRINCE's "Rock & Roll Love Affair" official single will be released overseas by Purple Music on November 22nd and we have obtained the artwork, which you can see above.
The single will include
-2 Jamie Lewis Club Mixes
The release will be released on a picture disc, 12" inch vinyl and CD single.
There is no word on when the video will be released as well. It debuted at the Sayers Club in late October in Los Angeles.
We have not heard the remixes yet but I have heard from those that have and they are digging it. As SOON as I can get my ears on some samples, I will post it to share.-DocFB
Diagnosis: "Rock, Rock, Love Affair....."
What started off as a rumor I was emailed about regarding Prince signing a 3 album record deal turned out to be false.
However, an interesting distribution deal is happening. For those wishing for new Prince music though, you might be disappointed.
