In his first Twitter interview, 22nd November 2013, Prince via his @3rdeyegirl revealed his new album Plectrum Electrum is currently in the studio undergoing the final stages of mixing. When asked of its track listing he would only confirm Fixurlifeup will be one of the tunes on the upcoming album, which is due out in 2014 and in all formats. Whilst Prince cleared up the fact there will be no more shows or releases prior to Christmas, he did Prince, however, confirm an earlier commitment to his Twitter followers regarding a planned show in London. During his last trip to London on 19 August to spend time at a north London recording studio with 3rdEyeGirl, hopes for a surprise show were dashed due to the speed (or bureaucracy) to obtain the relevant permits Prince tells us work is currently afoot looking at and booking venues for a series shows in which London is to be ‘the first stop’. Details and much more it seems will be announced in the New Year. Prince plays his final shows of 2013 with a run of three concerts during the Christmas to New Year holiday (27th to 29th) at the Mohegan Sun Arena, Uncasville, CT. Tickets on sale December 6.
