Prince releases funky sex anthem 'Breakfast Can Wait'

The Purple One continues to release new music with little fanfare.

Unlike the throwback boogie of ‘Screwdriver,’ ‘Breakfast Can Wait’ is a lush bit of bedroom funk heavy on slap bass and a finger-snapping groove. Prince harmonizes with his own pitchshifted vocals as he labors through the saccharine lyrics about pre-breakfast lovemaking (“Hotcakes, smothered in honey (wait a min) / Imma have to pass / fresh cup of coffee (no, no) / I’d rather have you in my lap.”).

Stream the track below (while you can). It’s available on his website for just $0.88, along with ‘Screwdriver’ and a few recent remixes. Earlier today, we reported that Booker T, Bilal, Talib Kweli, Elvis Costello, The Waterboys, and D’Angelo (!) will join The Roots at a Prince tribute concert.
