Inter Arma Release Cover Of Prince’s “Purple Rain”


Inter Arma have debuted their cover of Prince‘s “Purple Rain” below. That rendition of the track is taken from the band’s forthcoming covers record, “Garbers Day Revisited“, out July 10th. Speaking of this latest single from it, the band commented:

“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.”

Garbers Day Revisited” finds Inter Arma covering Nine Inch Nails, Cro-Mags, Neil Young and more.
