Among the more headstrong of the new songs Prince played during his recent two-night stand at the City National Grove of Anaheim was "Fixurlifeup," in which the Purple One looks forward to a time "when the leaders learn how to follow" and proclaims that a "girl with a guitar is 12 times better than another crazy band of boys. " Now Prince has released a music video for the tune, a guitar-heavy garage-rock jam with support by the legend's current backing trio, 3rd Eye Girl. It's the first product of a recently sealed deal between Prince and L.A.-based Kobalt Music Group, which plans to market and distribute material by him and his associates.

Add Prince to the growing group of veteran artists releasing new songs seemingly out of nowhere. Like David Bowie and Justin Timberlake before him, the Purple One sprang a new tune -- in this case, a tight little fuzz-rock delight titled "Screwdriver" -- on unsuspecting fans this week, and Pop & Hiss is pleased to report that it's definitely worth your bandwidth. (Watch a lyric video for the tune below.) Prince appears to have recorded the tune with his new backing band, which may or may not be called 3rdEyeGirl.

Those who quickly turned off Fox after Sunday's Super Bowl missed some TV magic courtesy of Prince. The Purple One dusted off his acting chops for a guest turn on the Fox sitcom “New Girl,” and it was worth sitting through the last batch of commercials and drab analysis to catch the show in its special post-Super Bowl time slot. Appearing as himself, Prince -- said to be a “huge” fan of the Zooey Deschanel series -- schooled Jess (Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson)

“Pericles, Prince of Tyre” is, dramaturgically speaking, a bit of a dog's breakfast. Scholars agree that Shakespeare's play was largely written by a collaborator -- and a hack at that. The plot includes an incestuous king, two tempests at sea, marauding pirates, a maiden sold into a bordello and a reunion between the maiden (still a virgin!) and the father who thought her long dead. As if that isn't enough, there's also a reunion between that self-same father and the wife he thought long dead.

AUSTIN, Texas -- On the last night of this year's South by Southwest music festival -- when many attendees were probably thinking about spending the next several weeks lying down in a quiet room -- Prince threw a party that nobody wanted to leave. Headlining a double bill Saturday at La Zona Rosa that also included A Tribe Called Quest, the pop superstar took the stage after midnight and didn't get off until 3 a.m. Actually, he disappeared on several occasions, but each time the crowd -- which included Dennis Quaid, Paloma Faith and Questlove of the Roots, who apparently headed over after his gig across town with Justin Timberlake -- drew Prince back with cheers that felt more like a collective demand.
