The following is previously unseen rehearsal footage of Prince & The Revolution from the summer of 1984.
It was in this very room at Flying Cloud Drive Warehouse in Eden Prairie, Minnesota that Prince created and committed to tape one of his most beloved and iconic compositions, which six years later would become a worldwide hit for Sinead O’Connor.
Prince’s original studio version of ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ is presented here for the first time.
Video directed by Andrea Gelardin and Ruth Hogben.
It's been seven hours and fifteen days Since you took your love away I go out every night and sleep all day Since you took your love away Since you been gone I can do whatever I want I can see whomever I choose I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant But nothing I said nothing can take away these blues 'Cause nothing compares Nothing compares to you It's been so lonely without you here Like a bird without a song Nothing can stop these lonely tears from falling Tell me baby where did I go wrong I could put my arms around every boy I see But they'd only remind me of you I went to the doctor guess what he told me Guess what he told me He said girl you better try to have fun no matter what you do but he's a fool 'Cause nothing compares 2 you
