Prince completists: Get your funky butts to a funky loan officer. The Minneapolis home that housed "The Kid" character in 1984 Prince vehicle Purple Rain is for sale, with a reasonable asking price of $110,000. Beyond music history, the Longfellow property built in 1913 boasts three bedrooms, 1.5 baths, 1,348 square feet, and a "newer boiler" installed in 2010. It is a fixer-upper, though, with the real-estate listing offering prospective buyers the opportunity to "Revitalize this historic home which Prince featured in his Purple Rain movie. This home needs to be rehabbed."

Check out the listing here to see if you're up for the challenge. Minneapolis' most iconic rock 'n' roll house, the one featured on the cover of the Replacements' Let It Be, would be a higher-ticket piece of memorabilia should it hit the market, notching a $591,849 Zestimate score on real estate website Zillow (Purple Rain house is at $160,049). 

In other Purple One news, it appears Prince and his band, 3rd Eye Girl, are set to release their third album in two years. Named after their recent string of pop-up concerts, The Hit & Run Album will "hopefully" land soon, 3EG reveals to BBC

"Super hardcore Prince fans that know every song he's ever recorded — we refer to them as 'The Purple Collective' or 'The Purple Army' — this album is absolutely for them, because it's super funky," 3EG tells BBC. "It's weird, there's a lot of experimental sound. It's just hit after hit and definitely caters to those fans who just love to hear what Prince has to say, rather than wanting to always hear that classic Purple Rain Prince sound."
