Both mark Prince’s first release since 2010. He has already unveiled a couple tracks from both albums, including Art’s Official Age’s “Breakdown” and Plectrumelectrum’s kinky “Breakfast Can Wait” and today the sexual rocker debuted another new track, a slow jam known as “U Know” on his SoundCloud page.

For those whom may be interested … Courtney Love has writers block.

Like many authors, Courtney Love is a victim of writer’s block. The Hole singer has been penning a memoir with Rolling Stone writer Anthony Bozza. The Girl With the Most Cake was supposed to hit bookshelves in December of 2013 before being pushed back to early-2014. We are now in September and still no sign of Love’s memoir. “It’s a disaster. A nightmare,” Love told Paper.

Since 1998, former Fleetwood Mac singer/songwriter/keyboardist Christine McVie has insisted she long since retired from performing and is quite happy living a sedentary life in the English countryside. But last week, a BBC Radio host told his audience that McVie told him she would perform with her old bandmates if they invited her to do so during their upcoming UK tour, which begins September 20 in Dublin, Ireland. Host Johnny Walker said on-air, “I did put the question: ‘Christine, is there any likelihood you might join Fleetwood Mac on the UK shows?’ She said, ‘If they asked me, I’d play.’”
