There’s no purple rain in sight as Prince glides in on his new single “Clouds.” The psychedelic record provides a how-to guide to connecting IRL, especially in the rapid-fire age of the Internet. Spoiler alert: A surprise kiss on the neck and a little shower power never hurt anyone. British soul singer Lianne La Havas also sweetens the pot by lending her elegant vocals to the track.

And if a new song from The Purple One wasn’t enough, Warner Bros. has announced that Prince will be flooding playlists with two releases, Art Official Age (which will house “Clouds”) and PLECTRUMELECTRUM with his band 3rd Eye Girl, both coming in hot on Sept. 29. So go ahead and party like it’s 2014 with “Clouds” below.
