Ruffle those collars and ready the umbrellas for "Purple Rain," Prince is coming to TV.

The eccentric artist will guest star as himself on an episode of New Girl airing after the Super Bowl. In the episode, Zooey Deschanel's character Jess gets a coveted invite to Prince's mega mansion party.

New Girl's executive producer Brett Baer reveals it was Prince who contacted the show about an appearance. Mr. Red Corvette confessed to being a big fan, and especially adores Nick and Jess as a couple. Because you never say no to Prince, the music legend will be offering Jess some "hip tips" on her relationship during his cameo.

Deschanel teased the upcoming episode on her Instagram with a shot of Prince trying to help the New Girl couple work it out:





Looks like it isn't going too well, but coming up with advice shouldn't be hard, Prince's music catalogue is full of help for the lovelorn. Here are a few hits from which Nick and Jess could pull some wisdom:

I Would Die 4 U



Everyone loves a grand romantic gesture, and it doesn't get much bigger than life itself.

Raspberry Beret



Don't let the Mr. McGees of the world get you down. Take time to praise the idiosyncrasies of the one you love, which are often what attracted you in the first place.

I Wanna Be Your Lover



Communication troubles? Don't be afraid to be blunt about what you want.

When Doves Cry



The world is a cold place (hello, Polar Vortex), don't push away the person keeping you warm.

Kiss



True love is being attracted to a person exactly as they are.

When You Were Mine



No matter how innocent someone appears, don't let 'em abuse your heart – unless you're planning on writing an excellent song about it.

If I Was Your Girlfriend



The perfect relationship is two best friends falling in love and sharing a closet.
