More rumblings from the Purple One from the frozen tundra of Minneapolis. After Prince‘s mysterious six shows last week at the Dakota Jazz Club, he has launched a new website featuring a brand new song and lyric video for “Screwdriver.” The website also has what appears to be a trailer for an upcoming DVD of his 2009 performance at the Montreux Jazz Festival, as as well as a song from a female artist named Andy Allo.
The new website, which appears to be official, follows the launch of a official-seeming Twitter handle that has been posting remixes and even a new Prince song.
Prince is also slated to be on the January 26 cover of Billboard magazine and to receive the Billboard Icon Award on May 19; so it looks like 2013 is shaping up to be the year of The Artist Formerly Known As.
Check out the new Prince Website to hear to “Screwdriver” and listen below to “Chapter & Verse,” recorded live from last Thursday’s Prince show at The Dakota:
