Felix da Housecat Says We All Wanna Be Prince
"I wrote this song because even 25 years later We All Wanna Be Prince," Felix explains. "Prince is one of the most brilliant, talented, and influential musicians of all time and without him many contemporary musicians would be nowhere."
Ushering out the single in grand style, Felix will release the original version along with a bevy of remixes by Paper Faces (AKA The Killers/Madonna/Seal super-producer Stuart Price), Joachim Garraud, Danny Howells, Grey Ghost & Deth Hertz, and Port-Royal.
It's been eight years since Felix Da Housecat broke out of the house music underground with his electro-pop smash, Kittenz and Thee Glitz (2001), joining the ranks of other soon-to-be-legendary electro-rock pioneers such as Peaches, Fischerspooner and Miss Kittin and the Hacker to define a new style of music and ignite a mass movement of dance-rockers and rocked-out DJs. Perhaps it's no accident that all of these artists are back with new albums this year, including our man Felix, who returns with the release of his electronic opus He Was King.
