Hurricane, the renowned rock legend, has resurfaced with an electrifying rendition of Queen’s timeless hit, “Under Pressure,” accompanied by a music video that pays homage to the original while infusing their signature rock flair. The release of this cover track coincides with their highly anticipated album, marking their triumphant return after a hiatus spanning more than two decades. In collaboration with Deko Entertainment, Hurricane’s “Under Pressure” cover showcases their enduring musical prowess and ability to breathe new life into a classic.
From the first notes, Hurricane’s version of “Under Pressure” grabs the listener’s attention with its robust energy and dynamic instrumentation.
