Prince’s 1999 Super Deluxe Edition has just been released. The Prince estate has partnered with Warner Records and together they have launched the new package, which contains 65 tracks.

Iggy Pop – “The Passenger”
Iggy Pop has released an “Offically Unofficial” Mac DeMarco-directed video for his Free track, “Sonali.” The clip is just as peculiar as you’d expect, as it sees DeMarco’s girlfriend Kiera McNally and their friend Tommy Midnight making their way through their day as lizard people that rivals the likes of the characters in DeMarco’s recent clips. The video for “Sonali” follows “Lizard Man” Midnight as he frustratingly tried to make his way home from work in traffic. Watch the clip here.
