Beck effortlessly rolled through a string of Prince’s biggest hits in the new video for “The Paisley Experience,” recorded at the late musician’s Paisley Park Studios. “The Paisley Experience” experience appears on Beck’s new three-track EP, Paisley Park Sessions, released last week exclusively via Amazon Music.
The performance finds Beck outfitted in a fittingly pale purple blouse and opens with a rendition of “Raspberry Beret” that leaps into “When Doves Cry.” Beck really hits his stride on “Kiss,” utilizing his always delightful falsetto as he shuffles around the studio floor, before bringing the performance to a close a thrilling “1999.”
