Prince joins Instagram, releases new song featuring Zooey Deschanel
With all of Prince's high-profile promotional activity as of late, it's easy to forget that the Purple One was once rather media shy and reclusive. And now, Prince is planning on sharing a bit more of himself socially, as he just officially joined Instagram over the weekend. His Princetagram account has already seen a flurry of stylish photos shared, all providing another glimpse into the creative personal life of Minneapolis's funkiest musician.
On top of all of that, Prince just debuted his new musical collaboration with Zooey Deschanel as well. The all-too-adorable duo released "FALLINLOVE2NITE," a track that saw its premiere at the end of the Purple Yoda's celebrated appearance on New Girl.
The new jam finds Prince shifting into a more dynamic, electronic groove, with both singers trading off vocal duties throughout the pulsating new track. The single was originally shared on YouTube over the weekend, and is now available on all digital formats.
Prince and Deschanel first "performed" the track together onstage at the end of New Girl's Super Bowl episode, with the Purple One inviting Zooey to join him on the song. The live performance was a definite highlight of the surprisingly entertaining episode, as Deschanel and Prince clearly demonstrated their on screen chemistry (and comedy), which has now transferred fluidly into the recording studio in addition the small screen.
Give a listen to "FALLINLOVE2NITE" below, and check out the single's metaphysical album art as well.
