Patrik- Ian Polk, the talented filmmaker and creator of the groundbreaking black gay television series Noah's Arc is adding a new credit to his resume as one of the newest members of the rock band Fol Chen.
You may remember hearing Fol Chen's single "Cable TV" during the love scene montage with Noah & Wade in the hit indie film Jumping The Broom.
Polk who is now a full fledge member of Fol Chen and sang lead vocals on "The Idiot" which appears on The Jumping The Broom soundtrack has just released "The Beautiful Ones" via Spin Magazine as a tribute for the 25th anniversary of Purple Rain.
"Purplish Rain" contains covers from one of Prince's most successful albums of all time including "Let's Go Crazy", "I Would Die 4 U", and the controversial "Darling Nikki" that led to the labeling of CD's with the parental advisory label.
Spin readers will be able to download the full album when they purchase a copy of the July issue. Polk and Fol Chen are currently performing spot dates in London and will be embarking on a European tour in September. Get into their cover of "The Beautiful Ones" below.
