Check out IDER’s dark cover of Prince’s ‘I Would Die 4 U’

Dramatic stuff.

IDER have dropped a cover of Prince’s ‘I Would Die 4 U’.

“We wanted to record a cover of a timeless song and one that we could take into a totally new space,” the band explain. “It was important that we could make our version unique to us and I Would Die 4 U by Prince enabled us to do exactly that.

“We took this upbeat dance track and turned it into a dark and vocally intimate version. We recorded the track at Metropolis studios with some of the producers we recorded our album with, and played the grand piano which supposedly once belonged to the legendary Freddie Mercury. It was a very special experience.”

The duo are about to take their debut album ‘Emotional Education’ out on the road. Check out ‘I Would Die 4 U’ below, and catch the band live at the following:
