Aside from releasing acclaimed albums such as 2015’s self-titled and last year’s The Future And The Past, Natalie Prass has proven herself adept at adapting other people’s music — mainly via the Side By Side EP, which featured her takes on tracks by Grimes, Anita Baker, and Simon & Garfunkel among others.
Today Prass presents another cover. This time she’s interpreting “Wild Horses” — not the Rolling Stones’ “Wild Horses,” but rather the “Wild Horses” from Prefab Sprout’s 1990 opus Jordan: The Comeback. The recording is available exclusively through Amazon Music, who’ve helpfully also included official live footage of Prass performing “Wild Horses” at Chop Suey in Seattle. She’s done a good job of capturing that elusive Paddy McAloon vibe.
Prass is beginning a run of shows opening for Kacey Musgraves tonight. Along with those tour dates, below you can find the studio audio and live video — and, why the hell not, Prefab Sprout’s original too.
