Prince Drops New Song ‘Screwdriver,’ Launches New Website

Check out the lyric video for "Screwdriver" and see what else the purple weirdo is up to.

Prince has launched a new website with a few titillating bells and whistles, the most interesting being a lyric video for his brand new song "Screwdriver".

Prince's all-new backing band is featured in the clip, which is an impossibly annoying word-walk through lolspeak abbreviations that completely distract from the song itself, which leaves a bit to be desired, if we're being honest. Did Lenny Kravitz write this?

Keep in mind, Prince is 55 years old. When a 55 year old man is using text abbreviations that your annoying halfwit little sister truly believes is the authentic spelling of such words (2, UR, etc), a creepy feeling of wrongness settles in. 

Cut with rehearsal footage, "Screwdriver" can be seen below:

Additionally, Prince's new site features a teaser trailer for an upcoming film seemingly titled Prince at Montreux. It may indicate a release of Prince’s first official DVD since 2003′s lackluster Live at the Aladdin. 

We'll keep you posted on updates from the Paisley planet.
