“When Doves Cry” buy/stream link:
For Immediate Release
NONPOINT released their revision of “When Doves Cry” to all major platforms today. The single was originally released by Prince and the Revolution in 1984 and was one of the hit singles from the album Purple Rain.
Vocalist Elias Soriano says, “Our fans throughout the years have always had a quiet romance with the songs we like to cover. Seeing that our biggest showing in that category, our cover of Phil Collins ‘In The Air Tonight,’ was a suggestion from a friend and fan of the band, we thought it only fitting we let all our fans have a chance to throw their hats in the ring this time. So in the middle of a global pandemic, we threw up a bracket style voting tournament with a list of contenders from Metallica to DMX. As fans voted over a few weeks, it was exciting to watch it go from 16 songs to the final two, Metallica’s – Nothing Else Matters vs Prince’s – When Doves Cry. When they chose Prince, the real work began. We went through version after version. We knew we had to do it justice in the biggest way we could as tribute to Prince and still make it Nonpoint. I’m happy to report from initial response among the few who have heard it is exciting and we look forward to our fans singing it for years to come.”
Dr. Fink of Prince & The Revolution reacted by saying, “I just listened to Doves and thought it was great!”
He adds, “Nonpoint’s revision of When Doves Cry by Prince and The Revolution rocks like a champion bullfighter slaying a prized bull!”
