The Return of the Prince

2014Prince_BigPic3_Press_050214

Britain, we cannot ignore the signs. As the sky turns purple and grown men start sporting tiny moustaches and speaking in falsetto it can only mean one thing. The artist formerly known as the artist formerly known as Prince is back. With his new band 3RDEYEGIRL as backup, the legendary singer will embark on a highly secretive tour of ‘iconic venues’ in the nation’s capital. Details so far have been kept under wraps, with the singer only revealing at a press conference at the home of British singer songwriter Lianne La Havas house that tickets for the shows will cost the measly sum of $10. While nothing was confirmed in terms of dates or specifics, he did say he was interested in maybe playing smaller venues like Ronnie Scott’s, the Bag O’Nails Club and the Electric Ballroom in London, a venue he played later that night, performing in front of around 100 in what he dubbed a soundcheck. All this comes after the singer joined twitter under the name @3RDEYEGIRL in August 2013 and released the single ‘Breakfast Can Wait’, with cover art featuring the comedian Dave Chappelle in his infamous impression of the star, a short while afterwards. 3RDEYEGIRL’s first album ‘Plectrum Electrum’ has so far not been given a release date, but aside from featuring the aforementioned single it will also contain the recently released PretzelBodyLogic. So far there is no indication of how long Prince will stay in the country, but you can only speculate that his low key return might be in preparation for a triumphant headline slot at Glastonbury. Either way there is no telling where he will pop up next, just keep a lighter in your pocket at all times, you never know when you might have to hold it aloft to the guitar solo in Purple Rain..

Also, Prince was on New Girl…
