Prince Signs New Record Deal

Prince has signed a deal with Universal Records to release his latest album, '3121,' some time next year. The announcement comes along with today's (Dec. 13) release of a preceding single, 'Te Amo Corazon,' and a world premiere of the video.

The song is available for download from Prince's official Web site, www.npgmusicclub.com, and through Apple's iTunes Music Store. The video, directed by actress Salma Hayek, will begin airing Tuesday night (Dec. 13) on VH-1 and its affiliated networks, and will also be available for download via Prince's Web site.

"Salma heard the song and came up with the original concept," Prince said of the actress in a statement. "Salma is the most thoughtful, attentive director I have ever worked with. An absolute joy." Prince plans on going on tour sometime in 2006. Prince's 'Musicology' tour was the highest-grossing national tour of 2004, bringing in $87.4 million.
