I made a special request not so long ago for my Purple friend to start embracing more underground sounds into his music and it seems he has started to take on board some of my advice. He teased us with snippets of it on his last release Art Official Age and some of it worked and some of it didn’t. It seems he’s intent on doing more of the same on his forthcoming new record HitNRun. Shades of PrinceStep on this track, perhaps a few years too late but at least he’s now starting to get it a little bit more and it’s possible you’ll hear some Purple Fodencia, Tarraxinha, Tarraxo or even Future Tarraxo in the coming years. Here’s hoping.
I’m feeling this track and would be interested to hear where the full thing goes.
Thanks to our good dude Eddie from Okayplayer for letting me know about this and here’s what his site says:
A 30 second preview of “This Could B Us” has been put online for those abstaining from TIDAL, but don’t expect to see it pop up in your Spotify or SoundCloud feed anytime soon. Prince has gone on record calling much of the conventional record industry “slavery” and praised the high-end streaming service as a platform made by artists, for artists. “Jay Z spent $100 million of his own money to build his own service. We have to show support for artists who are trying to own things for themselves,” he said earlier this month.
