Listen to Prince and Zooey Deschanel's Flirtatious "'FALLINLOVE2NITE"

If you too were confounded by Prince taking over an episode of New Girl, it turns out that maybe he just really likes Zooey Deschanel. A month or so after the Purple One starred on the FOX sitcom, he has once again teamed up with Deschanel for a new song called "FALLINLOVE2NITE."

Though in a musical context the pairing may seem even more bizarre, "FALLINLOVE2NITE" is a winning combination each's style: Prince's whispering pick up lines are softened by a blush of Deschanel's girly innocence. There is also a lushness—in the misting new wave keyboards, in the peppy brass notes—that has often been missing during Prince's funk-rock reinvention.

There are no details yet on where "FALLINLOVE2NITE" will end up, but as SPIN points out, all signs point toward the song spearheading an upcoming major label Prince album.
