The Waterboys have a long history of covering Prince’s epic “Purple Rain” in concert, and here’s another great take on that classic: Mike Scott and Co. on Friday performed a stripped-down cover of the song live on the air during the BBC’s “Chris Evans Breakfast Show” — which you can watch in full here.
This week’s new releases include a brand-new studio album from Mike Scott and The Waterboys, plus expanded CD reissues of Jellyfish’s two studio albums, as well as vinyl reissues of classic albums from the Pixies (‘Doolittle’), Rollins Band (‘Weight’) and Information Society (‘Information Society’).
