Robyn Covers Prince – “When Doves Cry”

Covering classics by beloved artists like Nirvana or, in this case, Prince is a daunting task, but Robyn — aka one of the bravest pop singers around right now — has fearlessly taken on the Purple One’s second most famous 1984 hit, Purple Rain single “When Doves Cry,” in just one take that was recorded straight to vinyl (!) this week. Enjoy her relatively faithful, synth-backed version above (the “hey” at 1:08, btw, is priceless).
