Prince on Apple's Itunes Music Store
Prince's S.S.T., his (surprisingly good) Hurricane Katrina relief track is now up on the iTunes Music Store. The really weird part is that it's kind of a tribute to Sade's Sweetest Taboo - Sweetest Taboo was about NOLA.

Prince and hurricane katrina with S.S.T

NPGMC:

"Over the weekend we added the new Cybersingle from Prince, "S.S.T." and now we've added "Brand New Orleans" 2 The Musicology Download Store as well.

As we mentioned earlier, watching the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina's wrath, Sade's "Sweetest Taboo" was put on a loop. After which Prince wrote "S.S.T." early Friday morning, Sept 2nd, after staying up all night. He sang all the voices and played all the instruments. "Brand New Orleans" is the xtended jam at the end of "S.S.T." All instruments again by Prince. Just a lil somethin' 2 take away the blues.

All proceeds from the sale of the cybersingles will go 2 Hurricane Relief. And 2 help in the effort, we have also made "U Will Be Moved" from Mavis Staples' CD The Voice 2 the Musicology Download Store. Written by Prince, a song 13 years ahead of it's time, available now 2 benefit Hurricane Relief.

Much thanks 2 everyone who has already participated and helped spread the word".

Lyrics:

Who will be a guest in ur tent?
Certainly not the ones who don’t wanna repent
And keep giving guns to the poorest of our nation sons
Who is gonna call u by name
With no confusion, trinity or preacher`s vain
Who says that everytime
And opens up the eyes of the blind
Who will be the one in his bed?
Certainly not the one who put thorns on his head
And wish him dead while they took his daily bread
Which one is of value 2 U
The one depleting the oil supply
Or the One that renews it
And keeps the peace
Like the groove on Sade’s Sweetest Taboo

Give it to me
Give it to me
Sweetest
Give it o Me
Give it to me
The Sweetest

Who will be a guest in ur tent?
R u gonna b happy with how your life has been spent
Did you have open arms for each and everybody U met
Or did U let them die in the rain
Endless war, poverty or hurricane….
(Then) it’s time for another groove
Like Sade’s Sweetest Taboo

Give it to me
Give it to me
Sweetest
Give it o Me
Give it to me
The Sweetest

Prince et Katrina sur l'Itunes Music Store
Prince a composé un soir le titre S.S.T. en hommage aux victimes de l'ouragan Katrina. Le morceau est non seulement en vente sur le site de Prince NPGMC, mais pour la première fois aussi dans le catalogue de l'Apple ITunes Music Store, ainsi qu'un autre titre Brand New Orleans. Une première qui offre à Prince une première place dans la catégorie R&B de l'ITMS. Preuve que depuis 2004, Prince et le grand public américain semblent définitivement réconciliés.
