Video: Prince’s Cover of Radiohead’s “Creep” at Coachella 2008 is Finally Available Online

posted by Oscar December 8, 2015

Prince has finally let go of his strange digital blockade of his cover of Radiohead’s “Creep” during his set at Coachella 2008 and now it’s finally available for your viewing pleasure.

Long story short, Prince isn’t a fan of his work living online (and digital media in general) so he would always take down any footage of that performance, but recently another clip of that has surfaced online and instead of sending another take-down notice, he tweeted it out!

So, while it’s still available, check out Prince’s rendition of “Creep” above.

Prince – “HARDROCKLOVER”

All hail, THE PURPLE ONE! Prince delivered today his latest song and boy is it a Rocking banger! Raw sexual energy is brought to life through the legendary singer’s high voice and those hard-hitting guitar licks to make sounds that’ll make you tell your partner to cut the lights and follow your lead.

Prince yelps “Ain’t no rapper trying to be a singer/ Come on, make a move … R&B ain’t got no place/ But put some hard rock on, you’d better cover your ears/ ‘Cause you’re about to hear a woman just scream.”

If you want a better idea of what “HARDROCKLOVER” sounds like, think of The Weeknd if he was more into Rock & Roll and if his music turned the drums down just a tad bit. Hear the new track below. Continue Reading

That private event led the way for another live collaboration by these two at one of Prince’s two sold-out shows at Warner Theatre, during which they played another Stevie track in “Superstition.” Check out the fan footage of that awesome performance above.
