Prince keeps the surprises coming with the sudden revelation of a new website containing a lyric video for his new song, 'Screwdriver', in the lead-up to a new album.
The news came suddenly this afternoon via celebrity blogger Dr. Funkenberry, who initially simply posted 'Shhh.' with a link to a previously unknown website.
Funkenberry had posted earlier today to announce that Prince was going to be on the cover of Billboard Magazine this week, following their recent announcement that he would be honoured with the Billboard Icon Award in 2013.
The announcement was a surprise to everyone and social media sites and fan sites dedicated to the purple one are buzzing with excitement tonight.
At the moment, there are three videos on the site and nothing else. The first is a lyric video for 'Screwdriver', a new song that had not been released in full until now.
The second is a teaser video for a 'Montreux' film, suggesting a video release (or similar) of the two shows Prince performed at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2009. This would be a huge release, given how fans have pleaded with the star to share this highly-coveted footage for over three years now.
The third video on the site is another promotional one, this time for Andy Allo's new album, Superconductor, which was produced by Prince.
Amongst the videos leaked was 'Chapter and Verse', a soundboard recording of a funky jam from one of Prince's six shows at the Dakota Jazz Club in Minneapolis last week.
You'll need to visit Prince's new website in order to see the new video for 'Screwdriver', but the leaked goodies from 3rd Eye Girl are below. Check them out before they disappear!
