On the heels of a new agreement with Warner Bros, Prince releases a new single. 

The very same day he announced a new studio album in the works and a new partnership with Warner Bros. Records, Prince surprised fans with a brand new single, "The Breakdown," which he dropped shortly before midnight on Friday.

The power ballad begins with a few stark, echoing keyboard chords before Prince's sweet falsetto enters, promising listeners that "This could be the saddest story ever been told." What unfolds is a tale of excess and regret, with a lush, string-orchestrated chorus punctuated by laser sound effects.
