Watch Prince's new music video for 'Fixurlifeup'

Among the more headstrong of the new songs Prince played during his recent two-night stand at the City National Grove of Anaheim was "Fixurlifeup," in which the Purple One looks forward to a time "when the leaders learn how to follow" and proclaims that a "girl with a guitar is 12 times better than another crazy band of boys."

Now Prince has released a music video for the tune, a guitar-heavy garage-rock jam with support by the legend's current backing trio, 3rd Eye Girl. It's the first product of a recently sealed deal between Prince and L.A.-based Kobalt Music Group, which plans to market and distribute material by him and his associates.

The video also provides a glimpse at the kind of gigs Prince and 3rd Eye Girl have been playing on the brief North American tour that brought them to Anaheim earlier this month and which concludes Saturday night in St. Paul, Minn. Media outlets (including The Times) were barred from photographing the concerts, a policy consistent with the tight control Prince exerts over his image.

Watch the video for "Fixurlifeup" below.
