Pop hero Prince has revealed a brand new single called Screw Driver with a little help from a mysterious, unverified Twitter account @3rdeyegirl which leaked a snippet of the song last week. The single is a classic Prince rock'n'roll tune and is accompanied by a promo lyrics video interspersed with live footage.
Recently Prince agreed to play six dates at a Minneapolis jazz club in order to audition a drummer and have a jam session with a full band; coupled with the seemingly imminent release of new music, all signs seem to indicate that Prince could be about to go on tour. Fans are getting very excited at the prospect of seeing their hero perform again, but as yet the rumours are unconfirmed. Prince will be, however, hosting a charity tribute concert on March 9 in New York, where The Roots and Talib Kweli will be performing.
