Brittany Howard -The Breakdown (cover)

So, Brittany Howard does a killer, almost note-for-note cover of The Breakdown, and its really good. THe version from the streamed album release concert from The Current has much better sound quality, so that may be worth seeking out if so inclined. But yeah,This is nice.

If you don't know, she was the lead singer for Alabama Shakes and performed at Paisley when Prince was still alive.

Coincidentally, I just listened to the album before finding this post. I really like most of it, and like her in Alabama Shakes as well. Glad she is covering the Breakdown.

I´m skeptical when it comes to cover versions of Prince´s songs but I appreciate that she covered a very unusual and rarely heard, and rarely known song, and I think it´s a beautiful rendition.

.

Makes me wonder if people had appreciated some of Prince´s newer songs a bit more if they had been released by other, more current people with a younger audience. I´d still prefer Prince´s versions any day, of course, but I´m just wondering from a commercial point of view.

" I´d rather be a stank ass hoe because I´m not stupid. Oh my goodness! I got more drugs! I´m always funny dude...I´m hilarious! Are we gonna smoke?"
