Prince fans around the world are in celebration! At long last, Piano & A Microphone 1983, "a collection of demos and unreleased tracks that Prince recorded at his home studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota," is going to see public release. Leading up to its September 21 drop, the Prince Estate and Warner Bros. Records have released Prince's never-before-heard single "Why the Butterflies," to build some hype...and it's essential listening for anyone and everyone!



The track, which features a distinctly bluesy feel, is one of three tracks seeing the light of day for the first time on the new album. The other two are "Wednesday" and "Cold Coffee & Cocaine," which fans are eager to hear for real after imagining them for so long.

Piano & A Microphone 1983 will also include the previously released songs "17 Days" and "Mary Don't You Weep," (the latter of which appeared in Spike Lee's newest film, BlacKkKlansman).

The internet was, and always will be, in awe of Prince's work:







If Prince's estate intended to rile up his fan base for the big release, they definitely succeeded!







Prince may have passed, but his music is immortal.

But this goes deeper than just advice, to be fair. Some of us are sick of greedy corporations that stress the importance of being a "family" while refusing to pay proper wages. Still more of us are tired of people using certain language when other language can suffice.

After Redditor BensReddits asked the online community, "What is a phrase you absolutely hate hearing?" people shared their stories.

Dating is difficult––and truth be told, I don't know how anyone can do it right now, what with a pandemic going on and all. Just the thought stresses me out. Dating is especially hard for people who defy expectations in a heteronormative society. Take bisexuals, for example.
