The quality Prince tributes and covers continue to pour in following his recent untimely passing. Following the release of Prince reworks from a variety of high-profile and highly-talented acts and artists, Mac DeMarco is the latest to cook up his own Prince cover. Setting his sights towards Prince’s late 70’s output, DeMarco serves up a cover of Prince’s 1979 cut “It’s Gonna Be Lonely.” Originally released as part of Prince’s self-titled effort, “It’s Gonna Be Lonely” receives new life courtesy of Mac DeMarco’s Far Rockaway-hosted, Jon Lent-aided performance. You can check out Mac DeMarco’s spin on “It’s Gonna Be Lonely” — courtesy of director Jim Larson and Pitchfork — below.
