Prince just signed a new deal with Warner Bros., the label on which he made his classic Eighties albums before acrimoniously leaving to release his music on his own. "The Breakdown," a glam-slam of a lush funk ballad, seems to inaugurate a new era by looking backward with a contrition that's rare for him. "Give me back the time/You can keep the memories," he sings, perhaps clearing the air for that comeback blowout we've always hoped he's still got in him.
