Blimey: Marina and the Diamonds covers ‘True Colors’

Marina and the Diamonds covers ‘True Colors’

As expected, her own take on Cyndi Lauper’s massive power ballad is a bit emosh.

Not one to do things by halves, Marina and the Diamonds has headed straight for the ‘epic power ballads’ section when it comes to picking out a song to give the cover treatment. Things don’t get more soaring than Cyndi Lauper’s ‘True Colors’ - a track practically custom-made for belting at the top of your lungs into a hairbrush.

The new cover lands ahead of a trio of upcoming UK shows. Marina and the Diamonds play shows in Glasgow, Manchester and London next month. Head here for the full low-down and details.

Trading in Cyndi’s big hair and harpsichords for a more somber, reflective piano, the emotional welly-factor dial is still amped up to maximum setting on Marina’s own take on ‘True Colors’. Get a hanky at the ready, and then listen below.
