Prince and Zooey Deschanel release “New Girl” duet

At the end of Prince’s surprisingly endearing post-Super-Bowl guest turn on Zooey Deschanel’s hit sitcom New Girl, he invited Deschanel’s character Jess to join him onstage—with her pals—for a duet performance of a new song that asks the musical question, “Don’t (don’t), don’t you wanna (don’t you wanna), wanna fall in love tonight?” To add the parenthetical interjections, Prince hoisted a megaphone to the mic.

The song, titled in classic Prince fashion “FALLINLOVE2NITE,” is now being officially released. Credited to “Prince feat. Zooey Deschanel,” the song is currently on iHeartRADIO and YouTube; tomorrow it will be available on iTunes and other digital platforms.

What do you think? Will this be the JAM of summer 2k14?
