NYC’s @PrinceFox returns with his unexpected singalong cover of @JimmyEatWorld’s “The Middle”

PRINCE FOX, “The Middle”

Billboard was so impressed with Prince Fox’s take on Jimmy Eat World’s “The Middle” that they gave it a premiere.  And no wonder – his spin on the 2001 alt.rock and pop classic takes the song down a notch or two, taking away none of its original charm – it was in my Top 10 Songs of 2001 (and I am notoriously skeptical of covers of my faves!).  Prince Fox offers an earnest vocal while turning it into a singalong, because you all know the words to it after 17 years, right? 🙂  “The Middle” should not be confused with the current Zedd/Maren Morris/Grey hit, and clubs that play current and retro pop and rock will have customers turning their heads to find out who sings it.  Prince Fox provides one of the most genuine surprises of the year, a song that many think would be untouchable now covered with full credibility.  Give it a full listen up top.
