Last month, Prince appeared on Deschanel’s sitcom, New Girl, offering her character, Jessica Day a bit of love advice that involved a makeover montage and lots of butterflies. The two then later teamed up for a number in which Jess talks about wanting to fall in love tonight and, you know, doing it to the morning light.
With the release of a full version of the song, it seems that this song is a real thing. Like something that will be on his long-in-the-works album, Plectrum Electrum.
Of course, all this should be no surprise to anyone, being that the Purple One is like really, really into the Fox show, as in, he ‘ships’ Jess, and her roommate-turned-boyfriend, Nick. Maybe Zooey can be an honorary member of his 3RDEYEGIRL band.
