The Prince Comeback Continues

Former Internet skeptic Prince has a new website, and he just used it to release a new song, the mid-period-Rolling-Stones-ish "Screwdriver," which you can hear above. Coming on the heels of his November release, some surprise shows in Minneapolis, and rumors that a Prince tune will appear on the Great Gatsby soundtrack, the new song seems to hint at a full-on Prince comeback in 2013.

The url for Prince's new site suggests as much, too: It's 20pr1nc3.com. See what he did there? The fairly bare-bones page has one message so far: "Stay tuned."
