Prince – “Stare”
Prince has been waiting for the splintering of streaming services since his infant body coalesced in the shallow end of Lake Minnetonka. Although he just pulled his entire catalogue from Spotify, we’re graced with a new jam called “Stare” and it’s a Spotify exclusive. Music industry politics aside, it’s the first original Prince song that I’ve enjoyed without some apprehension since his renaissance in the past few years. In the groove-heavy funk experiment lane of Around the World in a Day‘s “Tamborine” and Crystal Ball‘s “Rebirth of the Flesh,” “Stare” definitely makes the work stretch.
