Prince

Prince has quietly released a single by the title ‘Screwdriver’. The track was shared via Prince’s new official site 20pr1nc3.com, a clever alpha-numerical amalgam of his name and 2013.

‘Screwdriver’ may be the first sign of a new Prince LP, but then again, it probably isn’t, given the man himself seems a bit down on the album format. Billboard cites its new cover article, a Q&A with the ‘Purple Rain’ star, in which he says: “That kind of album talk always comes up when something leaks. But I don’t do albums any more – I don’t have a deal. I do songs”.

So yeah, probably not.
