Annie Clark, aka St. Vincent, hosts a weekly Beats 1 radio show, Mixtape Delivery, and in celebration of Prince's return to streaming services, the singer songwriter played a variety of her favorite Prince tracks. She also told some of her favorite stories about the icon, and recalled a time when he came to one of her performances back in 2014. During the show she played "Controversy", "Sometimes It Snows in April", "Erotic City", and "Joy in Repetition".
Elton John made a brief appearance on the broadcast, and requested one of his favorite Prince tracks. Listen to the full show here.
Prince's music made it's return to streaming services other than Tidal for the first time in almost two years on Sunday. His estate also reached a deal with Universal Music Group to release previously archived music that was made after 1995 from Prince's famed vaults.
St. Vincent is currently working on her follow up to her hit self-titled 2014 record. Currently, there is no release date set for the album and no title has been announced. Recently, Clark made her directorial debut in the horror anthology XX, where she directed one of its four parts.
With no tour dates on the near horizon we're all hoping that the release of the new record will inspire Clark to get back on the road and bring her famously cool show, along with new material, to a town near us.
