The Purple One is reassuring on the second offering from his upcoming Art Official Age album, “U Know.” Against a bounce-inducing piano and beatbox backdrop, Prince gives a girl the game by way of almost-spoken metaphors and his signature seductive coo on the hook.

The 13-track solo album Art Official Age is one of two upcoming Prince releases under his new Warner Bros. imprint. The second, PLECTRUMELECTRUM, will be a joint effort with his band 3RDEYEGIRL alongside Hannah Ford (drums), Donna Grantis (guitar) and Ida Nielsen (bass). Both projects hit shelves on Sept. 29.

While you wait for your double-dose of Prince at the end of the month, spin “U Know” below:
