‘Purple Rain’ in Inter Arma’s versie online

Dat Inter Arma met een plaat vol covers gaat komen, is inmiddels geen nieuws meer. Eerder werd onder andere al hun versie van Nine Inch Nails’ ‘March Of The Pigs‘ online gezet. Nu is er nog een track die tot de verbeelding zal spreken van de muziekliefhebber.

De afsluiter van Garber Days Revisited is namelijk één van de meest bekende tracks van de in 2016 overleden Prince: ‘Purple Rain’. Het nummer van de gelijknamige film uit de jaren ’80 wordt door Inter Arma op een intense, schitterende wijze vertolkt. Check dat hier:

Inter Arma over ‘Purple Rain’

“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.”
