New Music: Capital Cities- Nothing Compares 2 U (Sinead O'Connor cover)
Technically, Nothing Compares 2 U is actually a Prince cover, as the purple one wrote this for his side project The Family. However, Sinead O'Connor did a pretty good job of covering the power ballad and took it to the top of charts in several countries-it was her biggest hit.
Now, Los Angeles electro pop band Capital Cities has come along and turned the song into a summer jam with plenty of synths and a horn section. I think Prince would approve of this funky, groove driven, not so serious rendition of his song. Perfect tune to listen to before summer comes to an unwelcome end.
