Nashville singer-songwriter Kelleigh Bannen released a fan favorite song today (Sept. 12, 2019) exclusively with Billboard.com titled “Diamonds.”
The song came about when Bannen was listening to Marilyn Monroe’s “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend” and loved the idea of what the diamonds represented. Taking it into her co-writer Scott Stepakoff, the two began writing the song that paid tribute to a diamond, being more than just a stone. “Diamonds” is filled with a powerful pop influence, Bannen’s rich voice and her unique ability to add wit into any situation. The song perfectly describes the high of a long-term commitment with a love that’s written in stone.
She told Billboard, “I started playing the song out around town, and it was so fun for me to perform, it became an early favorite when we started narrowing down songs for the album,” she adds. “It’s probably my favorite song to sing from the album, and I love how the track turned out. It feels kind of vintage and modern at the same time.”
This song is one of the few to be released off the anticipated album, Favorite Colors, which is a collection of 14 songs, all of which she co-wrote. Each track shows Bannen in a new light as she showcases a new way to cut to the truth and offers something for everyone with a bold aesthetic and undeniable vocal prowess. Fans can pre-order the album now and receive songs “Deluxe” and “Faith In You.”
