Perhaps for the song’s 30th anniversary, Marina & the Diamonds have covered Cyndi Lauper’s 1986 hit, “True Colors.”
Marina Diamandis’ rendition is a delicate, piano-led take on the classic pop ballad. Nylonreports that various Marina fan forums have said this cover was originally pegged for release on the reissued version of 2015 album FROOT, but for some reason, that never happened. Not wanting to waste this sweet bit of emotive bliss, the song has surfaced online today, and it’s worth the two minutes of your day.
Listen to Marina’s “True Colors” below, and check out our photo gallery of her show at the House of Blues in November. Those across the Atlantic should take note: Marina & the Diamonds’ Neon Nature tour picks up in Europe next month.
