Watch LCD Soundsystem and Sufjan Stevens cover Prince at Coachella

The festival’s second weekend is underway.

Tributes have continued pouring in since Prince’s death, aged 57, on Thursday (21st April).

The second weekend of Coachella is now underway, and LCD Soundsystem and Sufjan Stevens are the first (presumably of many) artists to have performed covers of Prince tracks at the festival.

James Murphy and co. took on 1981 track ‘Controversy’, while Sufjan took on classic ‘Purple Rain’ while joined by Gallant.

The covers join tributes from the likes of Flying Lotus, Frank Ocean, Chvrches and FKA twigs to the star, who died at his home at Paisley Park in Minnesota.

Watch the covers below.
