Granted, if you're seeing Prince at one of his four DNA Lounge shows today and tomorrow, you're probably a big fan. But just in case you haven't been keeping up with what the Purple One has been up to lately, here's a very quick roundup of new songs, a new version of an old fave, and a teaser for his suspected new album, Plectrum Electrum. They find Prince in grunge-soaked guitar-slayer mode -- which should be perfect for seeing him in a small club. According to recent setlists, they've also been figuring into his live shows. So check it out.
