Nina Jones refreshes a classic with new single ‘Purple Rain’

Based in Newport, South Wales, Nina Jones is the latest vocal jewel from a country which boasts a stellar musical heritage. At just 17 years old, hers is a voice which already holds the maturity and depth of singers well beyond her years.

Her new single is a cover version of the iconic Prince track ‘Purple Rain’ – one of the songs that saw Prince become a household name in the 1980s.

The languid, artistic video is available online now, and you can see it below:

In choosing ‘Purple Rain’ as her next release, Nina continues a pattern of looking backwards to build a career going forward. Before this 1980s cover, Nina Jones’ previous single ‘Never Let You Go’ was a catchy track full of stylistic 90s touches. The decision to continue learning and working from what has gone before is a demonstration that, even as a teenager, Nina is still grafting hard to learn her craft from those who have gone before.
