Prince Shares Two More New Songs

Last week Prince announced that he had not one but two new albums coming out Sept. 30, posting new solo song “Clouds.” Now he’s back sharing even more new music, with new songs “U Know” and “White Caps.”

“White Caps” is from Prince’s album with 3rd Eye Girl, and one of his three all-female bandmates takes lead on the vocal. It’s a light, breezy number and Prince joins in on the chorus, assuring that the rough seas of the title will calm down soon.



While “White Caps” sounds like it could have been recorded in the yacht rock era of the 1970s, “U Know,” from Prince’s solo album, is one of the most contemporary-sounding songs he’s ever done.
