In what turned out to be quite a super Friday, Prince announced an upcoming album (courtesy of a new partnership with his onetime overlords Warner Bros. Records) and did a surprise release of a new single, too. While we wait for the full album to be finished, go ahead and listen to "The Breakdown," a smooth song about sadness, below. Back in March, Prince told Arsenio Hall that it's currently his favorite song to play.
