Prince is leading an expedient charge to repopulate the planet with his ultraviolet funk. Within roughly 12 hours of breaking to the world that he and his former label Warner Brothers were inking a global licensing partnership on Friday, we got “The Breakdown,” a dynamic true-to-form offering from his Purple Majesty. The track commences with a gentle synth progression reminiscent of “When 2 R In Love”, slipping into a dirty driving ballad, letting loose the powerhouse vocals we’ve come to expect from the bite-sized funkateer. These are four wholly gratifying minutes for the Paisley patron in ya, perfect for the nightcap on your hazy Sunday. It seems we’ll have plenty more from Mr Rogers Nelson soon, so be sure to keep it locked. Listen to “The Breakdown”, a stirring new single from Prince below and cop via iTunes today.
