Ireland’s 2013 Eurovision representative Ryan Dolan has recorded and shot a video of his version of Rihanna’s hit ‘Diamonds’.
Dolan finished in 26th place representing Ireland with his song ‘Only Love Survives’ in 2013. Since competing at Eurovision he has gained notoriety for the video for his song ‘Start Again’ in which he sheds light on the issue of bullying of members of the LGBT community and in particular the large number of suicides as a result. The song even featured on Ellen DeGeneres’ U.S. chat show.
This cover version follows Dolan’s new album ‘Under the Covers Vol. 1’ which was released in February and features his covers of hits including Zayn Malik’s ‘Pillowtalk’, ‘In the Night’ by The Weeknd and Adele’s ‘Hello’. The album is available to download on iTunes or you can stream it on Spotify.
