When Doves Cry is the new single song by American singer-songwriter Bonnie McKee which is expected to release via itunes by this friday April 29th 2016 Digitally. Prince is gone and we’re all still reeling. It’s been a week and we’re all still pressing repeat. This will continue. Everyone was a Prince fan because he meant a million things to a million different people: to women, to rap, to rock critics, to The Boss, to D’Angelo, to British music. To the President of the United States of America. Stripped of its synthy-bop, and certainly removed from McKee’s traditional pop bombast, this version begins eerily and morphs.
She said “Prince has been and always will be one of my favorite artists and songwriters of all time. I’m not exaggerating when I say that I ask myself nearly every time I sit down to write a song, “What would Prince do?” Doves cry is perfection and I know I could never even hope to touch his brilliance, but in his passing I realized how much this song really means to me, and was inspired to pay homage to the late, great, genius who taught me to take musical risks, to act my age and not my shoe size, and how to get through this thing called life.”
Release Date : April 29th 2016
