Prince Releases ‘Breakfast Can Wait,’ Tribute Concert to Feature the Roots, D’Angelo
The proceeds for the event will go to music education programs for underprivileged students in New York City.
This is the ninth run of the concert series run by City Winery founder Michael Dorf. Past events have honored the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and Elton John. “Prince is one of the most prolific songwriters in my collection, and he makes my Top 10 when I think about the artists who have truly shaped modern music,” Dorf said in a statement announcing the concert.
In the meantime, while the newbies are singing Prince’s old tunes, he’s releasing new audible treats that are blowing up on the internet. ‘Breakfast Can Wait’ is a new song available on the singer’s site 3rdEyeGirl.com. On the slow-tempo groove, he’s not trying to rush to the kitchen at the break of dawn, instead he’s craving something else to start his day. “I know you’re late, but I need another taste, breakfast can wait,” Prince sings.
And although a performance is not confirmed, Prince has also been mentioned as part of the Grammy celebration on Feb. 10. Will he be hitting the stage to get down to new tunes? Only time will tell, but Prince is surely edging his way back into the limelight.
