After declaring the Internet "completely over" in 2010, Prince seems to be playing along for now: the singer today posted a lyric video on his website for the new song "Screwdriver," which follows the leak last week of a snippet of the tune by a mysterious new Twitter user named 3rdEyeGirl

The 3rdEyeGirl account has raised a host of questions, including who's behind it, how they've had access to the songs they've been leaking and why the web-averse singer and guitarist hasn't had them removed. While the video doesn't necessarily answer those questions, it offers a strong hint: the Twitter avatar – a female face with three eyes – matches the design on the drum kit in the video. The clip features colorful blocks of lyrics stacking up on the screen as Prince and his band strut through the grimy headbanger.
