Colin Munroe - I Would Die 4 U (Prince Cover)

Posted 5 years ago
Producer:
Colin Munroe
Album:
None (Promo Single)

You may not have realized it considering Colin Munroe’s been a nearly constant presence in the Booth in recent weeks (see Walkin on Air, Diana, Faster, etc.), but the young electro-crooner’s actually be on an extended solo feature hiatus, a hiatus he’s breaking today with the release of I Would Die 4 U, a cover of Prince’s 1984 classic. Like much of his work, Colin produced Die 4 U himself, overhauling Prince’s original, high-energy feel with a trademark synth-soaked beat gives the song a slightly darker vibe. And while vocally Colin can’t hold a candle next to the almighty Prince, his voice isn’t nearly as expressive and charismatic, in the sonic context of the record it works perfectly. It’s an impressive cover, but I’d be even more impressed if Munroe played it live while wearing purple spandex and ruffles. On second thought, scratch that. I Would Die 4 U isn’t part of a larger project, just a reminder that Munroe’s still alive, kicking and will be releasing more new music soon, or so he promises. You’ll just have to keep it locked for more.
