Listen: Diamonds (Josef Salvat Cover) (English)

I love Rihanna's Diamonds. Not only was the song quite a departure from her techno-friendly previous album Talk That Talk, the singer's impassioned vocals and the mellow orchestration made it an arresting listen. Having said that, I must admit I was pretty much blown away when I heard this cover version sung by Josef Salvat (all thanks to The Perfect Guy trailer!). Very stripped back in terms of arrangements, save for some harp (?), piano and an occasional beat, Josef Salvat lords over the song with an emotionally charged rendition. Listen below -
