Remember when Prince set Twitter aflame
by showing up at the Current's 5-year anniversary show last month? Well, it turns out His Purpleness is a fan of the station, and he has chosen 89.3 as the place to debut his latest song. Before you start flailing around with flashbacks of his horribly bizarre Vikings tune
, read this description from the Current's website
-- from the sound of it, Prince has got his groove back.
The song is called "Cause and Effect," and it's a rocker - filled with virtuosic guitar work, explosive drum breaks, a poppy chorus, trademark shrieks and whoops, some intriguing lyrics ("if I had the chance to do it all again / I wouldn't change a thing except my next of kin") and a call to mankind ("you need compassion"). Opening with Prince's classic pop smarts, the last minute of the tune swerves into a propulsive minor key guitar/strings/drum workout like we haven't heard from him in years.
Tune in Friday morning at 7 a.m. to hear the track for yourself.
