Prince will be opening his home to the public for a concert at Paisley Park on Saturday. The concert will reintroduce his band New Power Generation, who reunited in New York earlier this year, and will also include his current band 3rdEyeGirl, City Pages reports. 

Where Does Prince Land on the List of 100 Greatest Artists?

 "We really just wanted to open up Paisley to the public and invite Minnesota and anybody else who can make it out," said New Power Generation drummer Hannah Ford. "This one is moreso like a spur-of-the-moment event to spend time with our community and throw a big concert for everybody and show off some of the stuff we're working on."

A $50 donation will be required at the door and cell phones won't be permitted. 

Prince and 3rdEyeGirl have been working on an album called Plectrum Electrum, but a release date has yet to be announced.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
