Roger Waters Covers John Pride’s ‘Paradise’

Roger Waters has recorded a cover of John Prine’s ‘Paradise’ in honor of his friend who died from COVID-19.

Waters said in a post, “My friend John Prine died. This is his song, “Paradise”. Miss you, brother”.

Here is the original version by John Prine with Marty Stuart recorded for Marty’s residency at the Artist-In-Residency at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

“I wrote [‘Paradise’] for two reasons,” Prine said during Marty Stuart’s 2019 Artist-in-Residency at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. “First of all, I wanted to put him in the song, because I knew he’d like the song if he was in it. And the second reason was that I wanted him to know I was a songwriter.”
