Just before the start of their UK headline tour, the Swiss rock high-flyers CELLAR DARLING share their version of an enchanting masterpiece by QUEEN.
The trio turned ‘The Prophet’s Song’ into an awesome video and the song is available for the first time on all digital services for stream and download.
“Just in time for our very first headline UK tour, we’ve decided to release our cover version of legendary Queen’s “The Prophet’s Song” digitally — a befitting tribute (we hope) to the incredible rock music legacy of Britain, and a mighty epic and mysterious tune!
We’ve had some proper laughs making the rehearsal *space* video for this song! Thanks to a bit of technology you can, for the very first time, see what we see when we’re ‘in the zone.’ Here’s the magic, in its full splendour, captured on video. Merlin and Ivo kept zapping in and out of reality though — presumably to the far reaches of alternate universes, perhaps on a quest for inspiration for our next album…
We can’t wait to play it live for you during our very first UK tour in just a few days!
