Prince Just Dropped The Lush New Single "FREE URSELF" As A TIDAL Exclusive
It was just a few weeks ago that Prince dropped his experimental, wholly electronic 38th studio album HITNRUN Phase One. The weeks since have been quiet, but filled with rumors of the next phase’s imminence. But it’s 2015, y’all, and if the year’s proven anything, it’s that the internet can hardly go a few week’s time without the the Purple One resurfacing on some platform in some corner of the internets. And so, true-to-form, Prince has relinquished the bubbly pop tune “FREE URSELF” as a TIDAL exclusive, which I wish I could describe to you with some level depth, but due to my own resistance to jumping on a new streaming platform, have been limited to a 20-second clip. What I can say is that it feels, at least within those criminally short moments, to be a dime from his Purple Excellence. But perhaps this is Prince telling me and the world to, in fact, free ourselves from the streaming bubbles we’ve been confined to. But don’t take it from me. For you non-TIDAL-ists, Prince’s new joint “FREE URSELF” can be previewed down below. The rest of you know exactly what to do.
