Prince Premieres New Song ‘FUNKNROLL’ on Arsenio
By Jeremy D. Larson
In a rare late-night TV interview and performance on Arsenio, Prince will premiere a new song tonight and prove that when it comes to his stage decor, there can never be enough fog.
Joined by his mostly female band 3RDEYEGIRL, the Purple One put out his new song “FUNKNROLL” which, as one might decipher from the all-caps title, is a funky nod to his early days.
Prince, flanked with dancers, shows off a few moves and did a little spoken word that had him directing the crowd to “put your phone down and get the party on.” We’ll say the party officially started when Prince was joined by a big brass band and everyone on stage and in the audience started doing the jive. Ain’t no party like a Prince party.
