Listen: Prince’s Surprise New Single ‘The Breakdown’

Less than 24 hours after he announced his new partnership with Warner Bros. Records, Prince also revealed a new song. “The Breakdown” dropped late Friday night (April 18) and is now available for fans to purchase on iTunes.

The stripped-down track begins with delicate strokes of the keyboard before Prince’s striking falsetto enters. “This could be the saddest story ever been told,” he sings.

In a previous interview, Prince told Arsenio Hall that “The Breakdown” is his favorite song to play.
