Marina And The Diamonds' "Immortal" Cover
Marina And The Diamonds serves more 'Froot.' Check out the cover and lyrics of "Immortal."

Marina And The Diamonds unveiled the glamorous cover and lyrics of “Immortal” yesterday (December 30) and kindly dropped the video this morning. The latest serving of Froot — the Brit’s much-anticipated third LP — is another delicate, stripped-back ballad that finds her contemplating the transitory nature of life. It’s a recurring theme in the diva’s occasionally morbid oeuvre, but she always manages to examine the topic from an original perspective.

The simple-but-stylish video finds Marina performing the song while home movies are projected on to a screen behind her. There are happy childhood scenes, a wedding and ultimately footage of old folks. She takes us through the circle of life without being overly sentimental. “Immortal” (and second buzz single “Happy”) are mark a stunning return to form for the quirky songstress after disappointing with the title track. Froot drops April 3, 2015. Watch her latest video up top.

Is this the best song from Froot yet? Let us know in the comments below.
