Lets-Go-Crazy-reloaded

Hello and good morning from the Prince News Desk. It’s been a busy couple of months here while Minneapolis funk lord preps a new tour (the Live Out Loud Tour), plays small club shows, goes on late-night, and drops by SXSW. There’s no official word on a new album, but Prince’s camp keeps releasing clips of new songs, live performances, and jam sessions with his revamped band, whose core consists of musicians Donna Grantis, Hannah Ford-Welton, and Ida Nielsen.

This latest clip from “3rdEyeGirl” is a reworking of the Purple Rain classic “Let’s Go Crazy”, a drunken fuzzed-out jam with absolutely no synths whatsoever and an interpolation of The Edgar Winter Group hit “Frankenstein” because why not. Listen to the thick-as-mud, bloozey, “reloaded” version below.

If you’re on Prince’s new level here, then you can drop some coin for the Live Out Loud tour as his new band wil play almost 40 shows at West Coast clubs starting in the middle of April. Those dates are below.
