His Royal Badness told Fox affiliate KMSP-TV that he was inspired to pen the tune after witnessing the Vikings destroy Dallas at the Metrodome last weekend. Prince told the station he hadn’t seen the team play in years until this season.
The song, titled “Purple and Gold,” has the sound of an old school gospel hymn. Lyrics include: “Raise every voice and let it b known, in the name of the purple and gold.”
A YouTube clip featuring a snippet of the song also includes footage of Prince watching the Vikings/Dallas game from a luxury box at the Metrodome. View below.
