Published Dec 30, 2013For Prince fans, 2013 will be partly remembered as the year the Purple One finally embraced the internet. He has now capped off his web-friendly year by sharing a video of him playing "Something in the Water (Does Not Compute)" from his 1982 album 1999.
The simple live video finds Prince backed by the New Power Generation, plus a flailing background dancer. The extract doesn't include any singing or structure; rather it's entirely made up of Prince shredding his way through a lengthy guitar solo. Dude has some serious chops.
This was recorded at Uncasville, CT's Mohegan Sun casino over the weekend (December 29).
