We had Luke James and Elisa from the NPG on the PRINCE spreecast this week and it was a great show!
Luke talked about playing with Prince at the City Winery and also touring with Beyonce and about a new movie he is in coming soon with Forest Whitaker! He also sang some songs and forgot his shirt...and it seems people did not seem to mind!
Elisa was a sweetheart as always as we discussed the Curacao North Sea Jazz Festival show from last weekend. Elisa also sang a few notes for us from "Love Machine" and "Daddy Pop" and Doc took it way back to talk about her appearance on Arsenio Hall.
U all knew that PRINCE was going to perform on Jimmy Fallon if U have been on this site and following us on Twitter for the past month. We now know that PRINCE will be performing 2 songs on the show (1 for the show and the other a bonus song on the web only)....but we do not know which songs he will be doing.
Also, Mariah Carey will be interviewed on the show. It is actually the 4th anniversary of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon that night.
Live Out Loud (L.O.L.) debuted on Friday as well and is now for sale on 3rdEyeGirl.com along with a LIVE version of "Bambi" with 3rd Eye Girl, which consists of Donna Grantis, Hannah Ford Welton, & Ida Nielsen. The song was written by Liv Warfield.
On last weeks Spreecast with DrFunkenberry & Seth Everett, we were able to share with you some information on the new tracks "Boyfriend" (Demo) and "That Girl Thang" along with Montreux 2013 DVD info.
Here is a breakdown of that news:
1. "BOYFRIEND" was an outtake for a proposed compilation...This was the 2nd of 4 versions. Hence the demo tag.
2. "THAT GIRL THANG" was written, recorded and released all on the same day. (Feb. 17th)
3. MONTREUX JAZZ FEST 2013 IS COMPLETELY SOLD OUT! THERE ARE 3 ENTIRELY DIFFERENT SHOWS PRINCE IS WORKING ON NOW. THE WHOLE EVENT WILL B FILMED FOR RELEASE IF THE RIGHT DEAL CAN BE STRUCK. THERE WAS NEVER AN OFFICIAL DVD RELEASE OF ANY MONTREUX PERFORMANCE. WHAT IS OUT THERE IS BOOTLEG AND MUSICIANS RECEIVE NO INCOME FROM IT.
Here is hoping that a Montreux deal can be reached!
We also were able to break the news of PRINCE playing the Stockholm Music & Arts Festival on August 4th..
We will be having another Spreecast this Wed. night which you can watch LIVE right HERE and access afterwards at any time. What will happen or break during the show? Will we have special guests this week? Tune in and find out!
