Nonpoint Debut Music Video For Their Cover Of Prince’s “When Doves Cry”


Nonpoint have debuted their official music video for their cover of Prince‘s “When Doves Cry“. That cover came about after being chosen as the winning track in a 16-song fan-voted bracket which the band hosted last year. Speaking previously of their take on the hit song, Nonpoint vocalist Elias Soriano offered:

“Our fans throughout the years have always had a quiet romance with the songs we like to cover. Seeing that our biggest showing in that category, our cover of Phil CollinsIn The Air Tonight,’ was a suggestion from a friend and fan of the band, we thought it only fitting we let all our fans have a chance to throw their hats in the ring this time.

So in the middle of a global pandemic, we threw up a bracket style voting tournament with a list of contenders from Metallica to DMX. As fans voted over a few weeks, it was exciting to watch it go from 16 songs to the final two, Metallica’s – ‘Nothing Else Matters‘ vs Prince’s – ‘When Doves Cry‘. When they chose Prince, the real work began.

We went through version after version. We knew we had to do it justice in the biggest way we could as tribute to Prince and still make it Nonpoint. I’m happy to report from initial response among the few who have heard it is exciting and we look forward to our fans singing it for years to come.”
