Prince - Prince's New Song 'Screwdriver' Is A Glam-Rock Stomper

If Prince releases a song called ‘Screwdriver,’ you can bet your bottom dollar that he’s not started waxing lyrical on the pros and cons of various DIY tools.

Sure enough, Prince’s latest song has the 54 year-old singing “I’m your driver, you’re my screw” proving that he’s not lost his touch, when it comes to shoe-horning a good old sex metaphor into his tunes.

The song itself, which is currently streaming on YouTube in the form of a colourful lyric video, starts out as a Beatles-esque stomper and takes on a glam rock style. In fact, Prince somehow manages to cram pretty much every rock and roll cliché into one song, yet still make it sound like one of the freshest things released in years. Prince hasn’t released an album since 2010’s aptly titled 20Ten and speaking to Billboard, he insisted that he’s no longer in the business of churning out albums.

“That kind of album talk always comes up when something leaks," Prince told Billboard’s Gail Mitchell. "But I don't do albums anymore… I don't have a deal. I do songs." On May 19, 2013, Prince is due to appear at the Billboard Music Awards, where he will receive the Icon Award. “I thank Billboard for giving me this honor,” said Prince. “It's always nice to be recognized for what we've done here. But I'm all about moving forward." So here we have it: a song. By Prince. Enjoy.
