Prince will be hosting a 'pajama party' at his home and personal recording complex Paisley Park Studios this weekend.

The singer will be playing the late show on the night of October 19, following a similar gig at Paisley Park earlier this month. This time around however, the show, which is titled The Breakfast Experience Pajama Dance Party, will require attendees to come in sleepwear. The dresscode states: "dress 2 impress - keep it classy!" The flyer for the gig also states that doors for the gig will open at 2am and that the band will "Party til' the sun comes up!". Prince will be backed by his 3rdEyeGirl band. A $50 donation is required on the door.

Prince played another show at his home studio on October 5. The pop icon opened his home and personal recording complex near Minneapolis to the public, where he was joined by both 3rdEyeGirl and his old band New Power Generation. Prince played tracks from throughout his lengthy career at the show - from 'Cool' and 'Nothing Compares 2 U' to 'Breakfast Can Wait' - which almost 2,000 people attended.

He recently unveiled the video for his current single, 'Breakfast Can Wait'. Click below to watch the Danielle Curiel-directed video, which doesn't feature Prince himself, but rather a female Prince impersonator.

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'.
