Aaron Krause & Liza Anne, “I Would Die 4 U”

on .

It’s impossible to put into words the full range of grief, sadness and confusion of the loss of an artist like Prince. This year has already been filled with such sorrow, but the loss of Prince is the harshest blow of all. Fortunately we can often look to the artists we appreciate to help us make sense of, or create beauty from, these moments. Liza Anne and Aaron Krause, two Nashville artists, collaborated on a remake of “I Would Die 4 U” several months ago that never saw the light of day. As Aaron explains on his Facebook:

We worked hard to create something beautiful enough to justify altering the timeless original, and after it was finished we ended up shelving it, not knowing how or when to release it. Today I understand. My hope is that this cover would help us all celebrate the life and the legacy of such a brilliant man.
