Well, this is amazing. Prince’s cover of Radiohead’s “Creep” is so good that it began going viral — again — on Tuesday, Dec. 8.

The legendary singer, 57, originally covered the hit 1992 song — Radiohead’s debut single — back in 2008, when he headlined the Coachella music festival. Shortly after, much to the dismay of his fans, Prince pulled all videos of his set from YouTube.

Thom Yorke, the band’s frontman, even complained about not being able to see the cover of his own song, telling Billboard in 2008, “Well, tell him to unblock it. It’s our song.”

However, on Tuesday, the “Purple Rain” singer mysteriously tweeted a link to watch it, letting fans see the cover for the first time in seven years.

“PRINCE,” he simply tweeted, along with a link to the performance.

The eight-minute clip features Prince getting his groove on to the hit alternative rock song, putting his own spin on it as the crowd cheers him on and applauds loudly.
