Rihanna, 'Diamonds'

Though she's still riding high off her last album, last year's Talk That Talk, Rihanna has already returned with a new single off her currently untitled upcoming album. "Diamonds" steadily pulses with slight orchestral touches and deliberate electronic rhythms, but the track's production mainly stays out of Rihanna's way, letting the pop star build hooks with layers of her voice. "We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky," she sings, unhurried over the uplifting track.

"Diamonds" will be on Rihanna's currently untitled next album, set for a November release. It will be her seventh album in eight years.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
