The purple one returns!

The artist currently known as Prince has a new single, and Celebuzz is debuting “Clouds” simultaneously here, as well as on our partner sites Vibe and Spin!

“Clouds” is off of Prince’s new solo album Art Official Age (take a listen to the song below). The prolific artist is also releasing an album simultaneously with 3RDEYEGIRL called PLECTRUMELECTRUM.

This past June Prince emerged from hiding to promise at least one, but perhaps two new full-length albums.

A Star Tribune reporter confirmed the existence of new Prince music. A song Prince recorded with Ora was called an “aggressive and menacing” rap song. A second song was described as a joyful ballad, “This Could Be Us,” that Prince said was inspired by a meme of him riding on a motorcycle with his Purple Rain costar and pop-star expat Apollonia Kotero (#ThisCouldBeUsButYouPlayin).

The Star Tribune reporter described that song as “joyful” and praised its “ecstatic Prince vocalizing.”

Well, we’ve got your first taste of his latest song, so check it out and let us know what you think of it in the comments below.
