Prince Puts a New Single on Spotify After Pulling All His Music off the Service


Last week Prince pulled all his music off of Spotify. It was gone within minutes.

Today he released a new single to Spotify called “Stare” with a little riff from his old hit “Kiss.”

“Stare” is his best single in maybe 20 years.

What the heck? All of Prince’s catalogue is off of Spotify.

Meanwhile, Neil Young is finally off of Spotify. It took two weeks after he proclaimed the reason for leaving was the inferior sound, not the payments.
