Prince dropped a new single, “Free Urself,” late Monday on Tidal.
If you don’t subscribe to the streaming service, then you’re missing a bubbly synth-pop tune (think early Prince) with simple and simple-minded lyrics about “life is what you make it/be the best u can be.”
He does some other philosophizing, including “love urself so we can love each other.” The song is all about positivity.
You’ll recall Prince released a previous single, “Stare,” on Spotify in July and an album “HitNRun,” on Tidal on Sept. 7.
“Free Urself,” which is not on “HitNRun,” is being billed as the Purple Pick of the Week. Prince is personally choosing the pick, which could be new or a rarity from his vault.
