Click above to watch the Danielle Curiel directed video, which doesn't feature Prince himself, but rather a female Prince impersonator.
Prince played a special gig at his home studio last Saturday (October 5). The pop icon opened his home and personal recording complex Paisley Park Studios near Minneapolis to the public for the gig, where he was joined by both his new band 3rdEyeGirl and his old band New Power Generation. A $50 donation was required at the door, and mobile phones were banned. Prince played tracks from throughout his lengthy career at the show - from 'Cool' and 'Nothing Compares 2 U' to 'Breakfast Can Wait' - which almost 2000 people attended.
Prince has been releasing a slew of material online in recent months via his 3rdEyeGirl website. Earlier this year, the singer and his new band embarked on a theatre tour of North America, with gigs in Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Las Vegas, San Diego, Anaheim and Denver. They played two shows a night at most venues. Prince also appeared on the track 'Givin Em What They Love' on Janelle Monáe's new album 'The Electric Lady'.
