I’m guessing after what looks like a cool start it’ll then go into more rehearsal footage. I would love to see the rehearsal stuff uninterpreted - with he proper sound that should be with it. I don’t think it’s the worst song, but ffs - why not love thy will be done if you’re trying to promote him and build the legacy.

'Love Thy Will Be Done' would have been my choice also. Or 'Noon Rendezvous'. Both are incredibly strong songs and have a timeless quality.

'Holly Rock' is fun and funky, but sounds like a retro throwback.

Manic Monday would have been a decent choice and you could have done a sweet animated video for that.

Unfortunately, any offical video for Holly Rock is still in the vault. There is nothing officlal about song audio put over random rehearsal footage.

Guess we will see what happens. The non hardcore folks are actually fooled by the rehearsal footage nonsense though so who knows, maybe it is a smart marketing strategy.

If it's done by the estate, from 2016 onwards that's what constitutes official.

Im relatively sure that there isnt a single song on the album that would make a significant impact with modern tv, radio or streaming, but I damn sure know this track isnt the best option when choosing a single. Super odd.

I heard they are putting the audio over an old episode of threes company.

Ok that is not true...but it makes as much sense as putting it over rehearsal footage that has nothing to do with the song.

Did you not read the OP's post? "The new animated video was created by Electric Light Studios and co-produced by
The Prince Estate and Warner Records. "

So no, it's not "more rehearsal footage".

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Okay, that's pretty cute.

Listen closely - there's guitar playing along with the sax. That said, does it matter? This isn't a documentary.

Really didn't think the Estate could disappoint me any further after the butchering of the "Originals" tracks (for fucks sake, some of those weren't even his original, fully fleshed versions).
This video has not only set the bar lower for standards and quality for the Estate material soon to be shat out, but quite frankly instills a fear for his legacy, though as if that fear didn't already exist (and just a fear of that goddamn thumbnail... Looks like a shite Ken doll with some purple sharpie on it).
In other words, my disappointment is immeasurable smile

Not at the very end... Before that yes... No it doesnt matter... Just was an observation.

Some of the comments in here really show how toxic this board can be at times, especially people shitting on it before they even saw it. Personally, I think it’s a fun song and a fun video - glad they put it out. Try to let yourselves enjoy things.

Actually on 2nd thought, rehearsal footage would have been better than a cartoon of a Prince impersonator. Was that Bruno Mars dressed as Prince?

I love the video. It's cute. Reminds me of the Sesame Street animation when they did the pinball machine with the Pointer Sisters singing. Let's just enjoy it.

He has hundreds of flawless finished songs/videos in the vault and the Estate gives us material that was created after he passed. You guys can keep trusting the Estate/Howe/CoAmerica to do what is best if you want. They have failed us and Prince miserably. This is not rocket science.

Yup! That's why I don't visit much here anymore. Full to the brim with toxicity. It's disappointing...and sad.
