Joey’s take on the 1984 smash hit saw him and his band take to triple j‘s purple-lit studio to remake Prince’s track with new lyrics, horns, ripping guitar and a new title — ‘When Thugs Cry’.
Joey told triple j the cover was meant to be on his latest album All-Amerikkkan Badass, but he couldn’t get the samples cleared in time to have it on the record.
While in the triple j studios, he also performed his original song ‘Temptation’, from All-Amerikkkan Badass. Watch both performances below.
