Prince is about to pull a Use Your Illusion. After last night’s VMAs, the Purple One announced that he’ll release two albums on the same day next month: One, Art Official Age, under his own name, and one, Plectrum Electrum with his band 3rd Eye Girl. Prince has been talking about that 3rd Eye Girl album for a while now, but the Art Official Age album news comes as a surprise. That album includes the previously released single “Breakfast Can Wait” and “The Breakdown.” It’s also got a new funk-pop vamp called “Clouds.” Below, listen to “Clouds” and check out the Art Official Age tracklist.
