You can now watch Prince cover Radiohead’s “Creep”… thanks to Radiohead

At Coachella in 2008, Prince delivered a very Prince cover of Radiohead’s classic “Creep”, gifting those in attendance something very special and exclusive, seeing that the purple one issued takedown notices for every video of the performance that made it’s way online.

Following the disappointing take-downs, Thom Yorke implored Prince to put the video back up, questioning the decision since they owned the copyright, and not Prince. “Really? He’s blocked it? Well, tell him to unblock it. It’s our…song.”

It seems Prince has re-visted Thom’s request (or only just read the interview) because the video has made it’s way back online, on YouTube, tweeted by Prince himself. Though, even if Prince wanted it taken down, the video’s uploader has protected himself with the cheeky disclaimer: “Copyright reserved to RADIOHEAD, the original authors of this song, who have granted me permission to upload this video through the above remarks. Needless to say, no copyright infringement intended.”
