Dirty Honey have recorded a cover of Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy” for the kickoff of the 2022 National Hockey League Winter Classic, which is set take place on New Year’s Day (January 1). The performance, which was filmed on a frozen lake in Minnesota, will air as part of TNT’s event coverage.
Turner Sports’ Tyler Lassiter commented:
“I found out about Dirty Honey through former NHL player Scottie Upshall and have been a fan of the band ever since. I had read that Marc LaBelle was a big hockey guy, and as soon as we landed the NHL deal on TNT earlier this year, my first thought was that we would do something with these guys at some point. When we came up with this concept, all the stars seemed to align. We needed a band who could faithfully pull off a legit Prince cover as well as one passionate enough to agree to shoot on a frozen lake in northern Minnesota in mid-December. The boys crushed it.”
Dirty Honey’s cover of “Let’s Go Crazy” will also be available on all DSPs on January 1 as well. The NHL pre-game will begin at 6 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. CT / 3 p.m. PT.
