Prince and 3RDEYEGIRL unveil retro ‘Marz’ video – watch

Track taken from the album 'Plectrumelectrum'

Prince has released a new video for the song ‘Marz’.

The short track is taken from the album ‘Plectrumelectrum’ – recorded by The Purple One with his rock band side project 3RDEYEGIRL – and the video is a seventies throwback piece, featuring blurry colours, psychedelic imagery and simulated static. Click above to watch.

Posting the video online represents something of a turnaround from Prince after he removed a host of content from YouTube in November, leaving just three video – an interview and two clips of the track ‘Breakfast Can Wait’.

Prince’s Twitter and Facebook accounts were also deleted with no explanation as to why. He had previously taken to Facebook to take part in a Q&A session with fans, during which he only answered one question. Replying to a post that asked about sound frequencies, Prince responded by posting a link to an article entitled ‘Here’s Why You Should Convert Your Music to 432hz’.
