The Prince Vaults

Imagine writing a perfect pop song but it's not right for your current sound so you don't release it - and anyway, you've got so much other incredible music in your repertoire that you don't need it, so you put it away in your vault. Instead, you wait eight years for when it will be absolutely of the moment. And by the way, you also then take out the final line to totally change the meaning of the song.

There's so much to unpack in this... mind blown.

"The future's all yours, you lousy bicycles."
