Muse Cover Prince’s ‘Sign o’ the Times’ [Listen]
Muse certainly explored new sonic territories with their recent dubstep-inspired track ‘Unsustainable,’ and now the British rockers drift even further from their original, um, muse with a cover of Prince‘s ‘Sign o’ the Times,’ recorded earlier today at the BBC’s Radio One Live Lounge.
The Purple One’s classic sounds quite different in the hands of Matt Bellamy and the boys, who flatten out the funky jam with crunchy guitars and stabs of electro-boogie, making it recognizable on more of a subliminal level. Still, they’re just as likely to get the tune — either version — stuck in your head.
