LISTEN: 3rdEyeGirl – Pretzelbodylogic

A bit more of Prince's new band's single, ahead of London dates this month

After posting a preview of their new single, ‘Pretzelbodylogic’, last week, Prince and 3rdEyeGirl have today released the track, along with a marginally longer preview video – have a watch above.

It’s all part of a flurry of Prince activity, coming ahead of some London dates this month and following his appearance on U.S. sitcom New Girl last night. ‘Pretzelbodylogic’ is the first single from the 3rdEyeGirl’s album Plectrumelectrum, due for release later this year. Heavy on sleazy guitars, reverb, handclaps and androgynous vocals, the song is a pleasingly 80’s throwback to a decade that, for Prince, has never gone away.

The ‘Hit and Run’ tour promises dates at several “iconic” London venues, which are due to be announced at Lianne La Havas’ house today – stay tuned to the band’s Twitter and website for updates.
