SPINâ€™s July issue is celebrating the 25th anniversary of Princeâ€™s Purple Rain album and film. In addition to a complete history of both works, the issue will include a free downloadable tribute mini album featuring nine bands covering Purple Rainâ€™s classic tracks.
While an Apollonia and Greg Dulliâ€™s The Twighlight Singersâ€™ duet is currently streaming here, the entire album will be available (for free) with the help of a clue from the article.
Unlike previous attempts at Prince cover albums, SPIN got clearance from Prince himself, so donâ€™t worry, Purplish Rain has Princeâ€™s stamp of approval.
