Mac DeMarco pays tribute to Prince by covering ‘It’s Gonna Be Lonely’....and it's oddly touching.
The weirdo rocker teased a cover of Prince’s “It’s Gonna Be Lonely” on Instagram last week, and now has premiered the full clip of his homage to the Purple One. It’s a weird, quirky little tribute with bandmate Jon Lent to Prince’s lasting legacy, and it’s entirely in DeMarco’s increasingly multidimensional style.
In the clip, he performs by the water while a dude in a leather mask gestures behind him. "We lost a true hero of mine the other day," he wrote on Instagram at the time. "Although it's sad, I'm sure he's ripping a hot solo right now in the next dimension. RIP." Watch it below.
