Watch the trailer for Prince's appearance in 'New Girl'

The singer is set to appear in an episode of the US sitcom next week (February 2)

The trailer for Prince's appearance on US sitcom New Girl has been unveiled. You can watch it above via Consequence Of Sound.

As previously reported, in the episode, which will be broadcast in America on February 2 after the Super Bowl, Zooey Deschanel's character Jess gets invited to one of Prince's mansion parties with her best friend Cece (Hannah Simone). The rest of the regular cast - Nick (Jake Johnson), Schmidt (Max Greenfield), Winston (Lamorne Morris) and Coach (Damon Wayans Jr) - then gatecrash the party.

It was previously reported that Prince himself contacted the show's producers and asked if he could appear in the series, as he was such a big fan. He pitched them an idea which involved one of his pyjama dance parties and was given the go-ahead.

Meanwhile, Prince is set to announce a string of London dates at a press conference on February 3. The US singer will arrive in the UK to announce a series of shows promoting 'Plectrumelectrum', the first album by 3rdeyegirl – his new band. The plan is for Prince to play iconic venues in and around London, with more details arriving at a press conference at Lianne La Havas' house.

La Havas and Prince struck up a friendship during her tour of America in 2013. A press release states that they jammed together at Prince's Paisley Park Studio in Minneapolis and have kept in touch ever since. When Prince informed her that he was planning a series of London shows, she jokingly offered her flat as the location for the press conference.

Late last year it was rumoured that Prince was planning to embark on a UK tour in 2014. The shows will mark the first time he has played multiple dates since since 2007, when he appeared for 21 nights at London’s O2 Arena.
