Watch Prince Bring the Funk on the Yahoo! Live Stage (video)

The latest addition to Yahoo! Live's impressive roster is the Purple Rain legend Prince, whose two albums Art Official Age and PLECTRUMELECTRUM are out now. Tune in later today on Yahoo! Live for the album release party.

Yahoo! Live has been offering listeners a plethora of live performance options starting this summer by allowing viewers to live-stream concerts by major artists. Already, they've captured performances by Drive-By Truckers, How to Dress Well, Coheed and Cambria, Lily Allen, and Swans. This online interface gives you the option to either live-stream the concert as it happens, or watch the recording of the concert in the 24 hours following the concert.

Now, the legendary Prince is being captured on the Yahoo! Live stage. His latest musical venture is a double-album release, the first called Art Official Age (a solo LP) and PLECTRUMELECTRUM (an album with the band 3rdeyegirl). The Yahoo! Live recording will document the release party for both records. Whether you know him as the guy behind Purple Rain or as the guy who serves you pancakes after beating you in basketball, the show is sure to be a real treat for music fans.

You can view Prince's live performance starting tonight, September 30th, at 9:30 central, at this link.
