Funky track emerges via a strange new Twitter account
A mysterious new track believed to be the work of Prince has surfaced online. Scroll down and click ‘play’ to hear the track.
Titled ‘Same Page Different Book’, the funky tune emerged via a new Twitter account called 3rd Eye Girl. The account was set up on Sunday (January 6) and a series of Prince-related tweets were posted, including one linking to the song.
At present, it is unclear whether “3rd Eye Girl” is a viral marketing campaign affiliated to Prince, or merely a fan who has managed to track down some unreleased material. The account has not tweeted since the day it launched on Sunday (January 6).
Back in November (2012), Prince released a one-off single called ‘Rock And Roll Love Affair’. His last album, 20Ten, came out two years ago as a free covermount with the Daily Mirror.
Meanwhile, the Purple One is due to be honoured at a charity tribute concert in New York on March 9. Artists including The Roots and Talib Kweli will perform songs from his back catalogue, but it is unknown whether Prince himself will appear at the event.
