Listen: Prince’s new single “The Breakdown”

on April 19, 2014, 3:09am

Prince wasted little time cementing his new record contract with Warner Bros. Record, releasing a brand new single in the wee hours of Friday night. Entitled “The Breakdown”, the four-minute funk ballad is now available for purchase through iTunes. It’s also streaming below.

As Dr. Funkenberry points out, Prince first debuted the song during a concert last fall.

As part of his new deal with Warner Bros., Prince plans to release a new studio album, along with a 30th anniversary reissue of Purple Rain, later this year. What’s more, he promises a “veritable goldmine” of unreleased music. Additional details are forthcoming.

For more sounds, check out Prince’s other recent singles, specifically “FALLINLOVE2NITE”, “FUNKNROLL”, “Da Bourgeoisie”, and “Breakfast Can Wait”.
