On Friday, Prince released the music video for his new single "Breakfast Can Wait," which is directed by 18-year-old Danielle Curiel - who also stars.
The Purple One doesn't appear in the video, but Curiel dresses up in a wig and fake mustache to appear as Prince, TIME reports.
While Prince doesn't make an appearance, a Chipmunk does, at least on the track itself. The video also alternates between Curiel acting as Prince, a couple in their kitchen and a dance routine.
The song also features lyrics such as "Hot cakes smothered in honey, I'm gonna have to pass."
Curiel was chosen to direct the video after the "Purple Rain" singer received a treatment she sent him for "Breakfast," the Los Angeles Times notes.
A spokeswoman for Prince said, "Prince wanted this video to be a creative encounter, offering fresh, young talent [the chance] to 'visualize' together."
"He was there for the shoot and approved the treatment, but gave all control to this 18-year-old. There were no managers, agents [or] label people there - just young talent collaborating for a very unique experience."
TIME notes the new album Plectrum Electrum is tentatively scheduled
for a January 2014 date.
