ULVER covers PRINCE; Song posted on official MySpace page
ULVER has posted a cover version of PRINCE's "Thieves in the Temple" on their official MySpace page ( http://www.myspace.com/ulver1 ).
"Thieves in the Temple" was originally released on Prince's 1990 'Graffiti Bridge' album, with the song hitting #6 on the US charts.
For the cover, ULVER collaborated with female soul singer and WYCLEF JEAN protégée, SIRI STRANGER. The boys downplay their
own participation, and relation to Prince, with the following statement: "Prince is not our familiar, but we appreciate his spirituality
and sensibility, manifest in this song. We are thieves in his temple."
Their song is part of a massive 81-track, 5-CD tribute titled, 'Shockadelica: 50th Anniversary
Tribute To The Artist Known As Prince' (C+C Records)
Info on the label website about the release reads: "An overwhelming compilation by the finest Norwegian artists
