Prince Wants to “Walk in Sand” With You [AUDIO]

Just a head of his highly anticipated performance at the Essence Festival tomorrow night, His Purple Majesty, Prince Rogers Nelson has released a new song. “Walk in Sand” is an evocative ballad, simple in its essence. With most of the song sung in a signature Prince falsetto, he harmonizes with himself to give the vocal arrangement depth. The instrumentation replaces the expected heavy funk beats, instead of opting for a more traditional R&B sound.

Truly a classic Prince record, this is the sound that delights all matters of soulheads, from Prince neophytes to Prince experts, like Miles Marshall Lewis and Zaheer Ali. “Walk in Sand” transports us to a simpler time in music, where the strength of the song were rooted in fundamentals: voice and instruments.

Listen to the full song and the view the lyrics below!

After a long journey, the final mile
Wish that we walk together all the while
After a mild labor, we both smile
All of the battles that we lost, both of us in denial

‘Cause nothing’s better than to walk in sand
Hand in hand with you
Nothing’s better than to walk in sand
Hand in hand with you

Another sun is rising
To bed with no delay
The both of us go despising
Not enough time to play

Memories come and then they go
Somewhere far away
Why can’t we just get lost together
And spend each and every day doing it?

Nothing’s better than to walk in sand
Hand in hand with you
Nothing’s better than to walk in sand
Hand in hand with you

Walk in sand

We have danced with royalty
And pimps of the like
You can’t please everybody
But such is a life

If there was only one thing
In this world that were true
Nothing’s better in this world
Than to walk in sand with you

Nothing’s better than to walk in sand
Hand in hand with you
Nothing’s better than to walk in sand
Hand in hand with you

Nothing’s better than to walk in sand
Hand in hand with you
Nothing’s better than to walk in sand
Hand in hand with you

Nothing’s better than to walk in sand
Hand in hand with you
Nothing’s better than to walk in sand
Hand in hand with you
