Prince has unveiled another new track titled 'Breakfast Can Wait'.

The song, which is available on the singer's webstore, follows the announcement of a brand new single 'Screwdriver', which is set for release on February 11. It also comes after the release of the track 'Rock And Roll Love Affair' in December 2012.

Prince recently finished up a series of intimate rehearsal gigs in Minneapolis after he reportedly booked six dates at an tiny jazz club to audition for a new drummer and host a jam session for his band.

The release of new music, plus Prince's acknowledgement that he is auditioning a new live drummer has sparked rumours that he'll be heading out on a wider tour this year, although thus far there are no dates scheduled.

He also did a rare interview, in which he took umbrage at Maroon 5's cover of his 1986 hit 'Kiss', saying that that their version adds nothing new to the classic track. "I do pay performance royalties on others' songs I perform live, but I'm not recording these songs and putting them up for sale. Why do we need to hear another cover of a song someone else did? Art is about building a new foundation, not just laying something on top of what's already there," he said.

Meanwhile, the Purple One is due to be honoured at a charity tribute concert in New York on March 9. Artists including D'Angelo, The Roots and Talib Kweli will perform songs from his back catalogue, but it is unknown whether Prince himself will appear at the event.
