Who needs album releases when you’ve got the internet? Alright, so maybe Prince hasn’t given up on the full album concept entirely – Plectrum Electrum, his 35th album, is reportedly in the works – but the Purple One has just dropped a rockin’ track “FIXURLIFEUP” over the weekend — just in time to kick off his Live Out Loud Tour.
Following a similar sonic direction as the heavy blues “Let’s Go Crazy” remake, “FIXURLIFEUP” has distorted guitars and a hypnotic vocal lead. Ripping through an electronic guitar solo Prince declares, “Don’t worry about what the crowd does / Just worry about being good at what you love.”
