Prince Unleashes Perplexingly Grunge ‘FixUrLifeUp’

New album 'Plectrum Electrum' reportedly in the works

By: Daniel Kreps // April 15, 2013

Prince and his backing band 3rdEyeGirl kick off their Live Out Loud tour tonight in Vancouver, so naturally the Purple One unveiled another new song over the weekend, a grungy self-motivator called “FixUrLifeUp.” If Prince hinted at a new sonic direction with his hard-rocking rework of “Let’s Go Crazy,” “FixUrLifeUp” sees The Artist going full Candlebox. The track still retains the Ric Ocasek-flavored power-pop of Prince’s other new songs “Screwdriver” and “Breakfast Can Wait,” though; the opening bares a striking resemblance to the Cars’ “Just What I Needed.”

“FixUrLifeUp” will reportedly feature on Prince’s upcoming 35th album Plectrum Electrum. Check out the track over at Ernest Radio, and watch a Plectrum teaser below:
