A few weeks ago, Prince claimed that cover songs should be illegall.  Prince believes that a cover song 'kills' the original even though the purple one covered a Radiohead tune in concert a couple of years ago.   Right on the heels of that statement, Rhythm Lab favorite Alex Clare just covered Prince's classic "When Doves Cry." Alex Clare's forthcoming album "The Lateness Of The Hour" was produced by Major Lazer's producers Diplo & Switch.

Alex Clare's created a mellowed-out, dubstep version of Prince's classic. Listen it to below and watch a clip of the recording process.
