New funky track from Prince. He Tweeted it last night along with this explanation:

Thanks Consequence of Sound!

Watch: Prince Drops “Breakfast Can Wait” Video

Prince’s new song, “Breakfast Can Wait,” is a sexy slow groove. It’s not the innovative sounds we once expected from Prince, but it’s still cool to hear a master deliver a funky track. Of course I could do without the Donald Duck voices.

Prince has a new video directed by Danielle Curiel coming soon for a song called “Breakfast Can Wait.” You can get a taste from this teaser video.

Damn it would be great if Prince could deliver a truly awesome album.

Zappa, Beefheart, Prince & 22 More On Making Music


Today Flavorwire has a cool feature, “25 Music Icons’ Brilliant Advice On Making Music.” Among the artists quoted are Prince, PJ Harvey, Brian Eno, Patti Smith and Thelonious Monk.

Captain Beefheart: “If you’re guilty of thinking, you’re out. If your brain is part of the process, you’re missing it. You should play like a drowning man, struggling to reach shore. If you can trap that feeling, then you have something that is fur bearing.”

Frank Zappa: “Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.”
