Rose Cousins shares cover of Prince’s 'I Would Die 4 U'
8 January 2020
Her new album 'Bravado' is set for release the 21st of February 2020
Today, JUNO Award winning songwriter Rose Cousins shares her version of Prince’s classic, ‘I Would Die 4 U’, recorded together with Bear’s Den and Christof van der Ven while all were serendipitously in Toronto on a day off from tour.
“Prince died on my birthday,” Cousins says. “He was bigger than life and yet so utterly, humanly vulnerable. Everyone has their own relationship with his music; I find his story and talent fascinating and his death tragic. This particular song resonates with me and when I knew the Bear’s Den guys were in town I could hear us all singing it. We had no idea we'd all be in town at the same time until two nights before when I was at their show in Boston. I'm such a fan of these guys and I'm so pleased we got to collaborate again.”
Cousins' last project, ‘Natural Conclusion’, received notable acclaim, including a nomination for a 2018 Grammy Award, a nomination for Songwriter of the Year award at the 2018 JUNO Awards, and three wins at the East Coast Music Awards. Cousins also writes for film and TV and her songs have appeared on the programs Grey's Anatomy, Supergirl, Reign, and Nashville, among others. She has shared stages with heroic songwriters such as Patty Griffin, Shawn Colvin, Lori McKenna, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Jann Arden, and Ron Sexsmith.
