PRINCE and 3rdEyeGirl's new album will be distributed in France by PIAS and although there is no release date, they feel it could be released by the end of the summer.

This info came from Funk U and the full information is below:

In partnership with publisher Kobalt Music Group, the independent label and distributor PIAS will publish the new Prince album in France. No set release date for the moment, though it may occur by the end of the summer. Not much information on its contents either, even if the first single ‘FixUrLifeUp’ implies the presence of the female power-trio rock 3rdEyeGirl. A surprise French gig could also be in the works and take place in the next few weeks.

It is good that there is a French distributor for the album, although I'm not so sure the album will be released by the end of the summer.  The surprise French gig does sound cool and promising though.-DocFB

Prince and The N.P.G. performed at the Melkweg In Amsterdam last night.  At the end of the show, Prince said "See you tomorrow night" and he wasn't kidding.  Prince is performing another show at the venue tonight.

Shelby J. opened the show last night with a rousing set and then Prince along with Andy Allo and the N.P.G. brought down the place. We HOPE Prince plays  funky version of "Controversy"  tonight that we would LOVE to share here.  Ahem. 

So, Amsterdam, if you are having a "Manic Monday" and need to let loose, you all know where to go tonight.  Have fun and don't forget to tell a girlfriend.-Dr.FB
