Inter Arma - Prince's 'Purple Rain' Cover Out For Streaming

After revealing Neil Young's "Southern Man" and "March Of The Pigs" by Nine Inch Nails, Inter Arma now present another cover song from their upcoming Garbers Days Revisited special EP. This time the "Purple Rain" by the legendary Prince.

Statement from the band: "This was never meant to be heard publicly. It was meant to be outrageous- to be played late at night while laughing and drinking beer with our friends. Because that's what this is: Inter Arma covering the greatest pop song of the 1980s, and arguably of all time, by Prince, who HATED when people covered his music.

"The vocals were done in one take by the drummer and not pitch corrected, because who else can sing like that? Prince. So we opted to stay honest and simple because we never thought that the general public would hear it. Once Relapse heard it there was a little bit of back and forth between the two camps and it was decided, reluctantly, to be included on the record.

"We hope everyone enjoys this and gets a little bit of a chuckle because I think we could all use that right about now. Stay safe, stay outrageous, BLM."

If I had to compile a list of songs to prove a point about how music is an art form that it wouldn't be worth living without, Prince's "Purple Rain" would have a very high position in it.

Cool cover.
