Ahead of the release of Prince’s never-before-heard album Welcome 2 America next Friday (July 30), the late music icon’s estate has shared the feel-good new single, Hot Summer.

Boasting a blissfully easy-going sound propped up by some bite-y powerchords and singalong-style vocals, Hot Summer joins Born 2 Die and the album's title track on the highly-anticipated album’s tracklist.
