New Prince Song ‘Screwdriver’: Our Verdict
What David Bowie can do so can Prince.
That is the “appearing out of nowhere thing”. The “new song dropped into the ether when no-ne was expecting it” thing.
This seems to the modern way of doing it. Out of a vaccum Prince has reappearedÂ with a single that sounds oddly like Status Quo playing their great song “Down Down” but with a little less Butlins and a bit more fruitiness. It’s a chugging rocker built around the faintly amusing hookline ‘I’m your driver, you’re my screw’.
Not that we are knocking the early seventies Quo – they were a fantastic band. Prince seems to have got his denims on and boogied himself up for the song which sounds like a massive hit if it is to be released.
The song is on Prince’sÂ website now. Have Â a listen…what do you think?
