Prince & 3rdEyeGirl drop new video for "Fixurlifeup"
While anticipation builds (and ticket prices fall) for Prince's two Saturday shows at Myth this weekend, the Purple One dropped a brand new video for "Fixurlifeup," a grungy, funk-fueled track drawn from his current collaboration with 3rdEyeGirl, which is currently available for digital download via iTunes by NPG Records.
The clip, which was directed by Sanaa Hamri, features plenty of live footage from a spirited recent performance, with many of the track's somewhat pedestrian lyrics included so that fans can sing right along with the Purple Yoda and his all-female band. There's even a slightly cringe-worthy image of Prince buttering some toast along with his lyrics that take a slight political dig at the U.K., before the track erupts with another of Prince's typically potent choruses that preaches rapid self-betterment.
Prince to play at Myth
Word has also just come through the Twitterverse that legendary Revolution drummer Bobby Z will be joining the band on Saturday night to play "Purple Rain" behind Prince one more time.

So, no matter what other surprises that Prince has planned for his Minnesota faithful, that moment alone should prove to be a memorable and moving one.
As of now, there are still two shows planned for Saturday night at Myth, with a new three-tiered pricing system with plenty of cheaper tickets just being made available. The all-ages first show scheduled to start at 8 p.m., with the 18+ late show getting going at 11:30.
