Prince isn't one that adapts well to technology, but Radiohead's Thom Yorke urged against his strict ways over the Purple Wonder's cover of their debut 1992 single "Creep," and finally got their way. 

Let's rewind back a few years ago. Prince took to Coachella 2008 for an electrifying set, which included a cover of the Radiohead classic, but only attendees that were at the festival witnessed the rendition. This was because Prince pulled all the footage from the Internet and since then, the cover has become a bit of a hidden treasure, considering it's exclusivity.

Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke even urged the release of the rendition when he learned about the removed video, saying, "Really? He's blocked it? Well, tell him to unblock it. It’s our … song." Now, years later, the cover of "Creep" has finally resurfaced on YouTube. 

Tuesday (December 8) marked a milestone for fans when the Purple Wonder endorsed the 8-minute performance with a link to the NME article (with the video) on the Twitterverse. There's even a note in the description that reads, "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."

As they say, "Let the music set you free."prince twitter
