St. Vincent Salutes Prince With Hour-Long Radio Show Tribute

With the return of Prince‘s music to streaming platforms, some cloud-based personalities are finally getting their chance to strut their paisley feathers on-air sans purple lawyer retribution. One such in-and-out-of-cloud presence, St. Vincent, took to the internet radio waves to send one up to Mr. Nelson in an hour-long transmission on her Beats 1 radio show. Here she shares her favorite cuts and intersperses them with her own purple tales of almost meeting The Kid. SV laments losing two of her musical heroes (Bowie and Prince) last year and pleads that these remembrances become all the more important as the greats keep moving on. This Friday, St. Vincent’s directorial debut will arrive in the horror anthology, XX. But for the hard-to-shock types, hear a preview of the show in the clip below and hit the link for the full script.
