    Friday is almost here, but then again, Thursday is the new Friday, and we have decided to celebrate the awesomeness of Thursday by giving ARTISTdirectioners an awesome premiere today! We're happy to introduce you to the infinitely stylish duo Giorgi + Leo, who offer up their infinitely stylish cover of Prince's classic "When Doves Cry."

    The duo, also a married couple, really Giorgi + Leo'ify the song!

    Once we heard the cover, we knew we had to share it with you. Thank us later.

    Like what you see and hear? Then nab the single at iTunes.

    "'When Doves Cry' was the very first song to come to our minds when we were first thinking of doing a cover," said Leo. "We both really loved the feel of the song, and it had been a favorite of both of ours since before we were even together. The process of recording this cover was really fun for us because its solidity as a song really gave us the freedom to interpret the emotion of its story and explore sound. Prince's lyrics resonated with us. When words ring true, it's easy to take them on as your own and it's natural to then want to express them. We wanted to bring to life the images that played through our minds when listening to his words and what they meant to us."

    With all that in mind, enjoy the cover and the video, and Giorgi + Leo.



    How much did you love this cover and video?
