Prince Premieres New Single, ‘Stare,’ on Spotify
Prince certainly is one for defying expectations -- and really, serves us right for having them in the first place. Case in point: Despite removing his catalog from Spotify earlier this month, the singer has premiered a brand-new single on that very platform. Listen to “Stare” below:
“Stare” definitely sounds like a new cut from Prince’s upcoming LP, The Hit & Run Album. His band, 3rdEyeGirl, offered this applicable description of the album: “It’s super funky. It’s weird, there’s a lot of experimental sound.” What’s more, they said the album is dedicated to “super hardcore Prince fans that know every song he’s ever recorded,” and “Stare”’s built-in “Kiss” reference (hear it right around the 1:25 mark) would undoubtedly appeal to that audience.
Recently, Prince has also shared his standalone single, “Hardrocklover,” and a music video for his powerful ode, “Baltimore.”
