Prince may have left us five years ago, but his music lives on and remains always right on time.
"Hot Summer" arrives at the same time as a new season of the Webby awarded official podcast "The Story of Welcome 2 America," which, according to a press release for the podcast, "takes listeners on a journey into the studios of Paisley Park and out onto the road with Prince in 2010-2011, when he recorded his political and poignant album 'Welcome 2 America' and then archived it, choosing to focus instead on creating unparalleled live concert residencies in cities around the US. "
On the first episode, NPG vocalist Elisa Fiorillo shared that after recording "Hot Summer," Prince took her and others for a drive past the beach while cranking the new tune.
