Prince has been releasing new tracks throughout the year, including “Breakfast Can Wait,” “Groovy Potential,” “Extraloveable Reloaded” and “Ain’t Gonna Miss U When U’re Gone,’” prepping fans for his forthcoming album tentatively titled Plectrum Electrum. It is not confirmed that these singles will be included on the long-rumored full-length with his new band, 3RDEYEGIRL, but his live shows, which continue through next summer, remain a hopeful indication that new music is on the way.
