Prince – Rock and Roll Love Affair (2012)

Set in the Purple Rain star’s famous Paisley Park Studios, the video shows Prince sporting a ‘classically cool’ look, complete with afro and round sunglasses. The clip also features some members of his band, the NPG, including Andy Allo, who released her own album, Superconductor, earlier this week. Drummer Hannah Ford and bassist Ida Nielsen show off 20s-inspired attire, with the whole video seemingly depicting a modern take on a vintage scene. His first official music video in over 3 years, this also has significance because of its release onto YouTube, a medium Prince has rallied against for several years. Add to that the release of Andy’s album on iTunes yesterday and we might possibly be seeing a shift in thinking, or perhaps simply a concession, by the iconic musician whose 35-year career has spanned several major changes to the music industry landscape.
