If Rihanna‘s latest single “Diamonds” has been running rampant in your brain as of late and you need at least a variant (beyond the remix with Kanye West) then you’re in luck. Zola Jesus posted a version of “Diamonds” as a “small thank you to fans and followers” November 15th.

Zola, who’s own “Night” is as darkly infectious as anything, is a rare kind of artist for our time. Since roughly 2009 she’s maintained herself just below “blowing up” and, featuring the glassy keys and glitchy patterns you might expect from Zola, this take on “Diamonds” walks the line between reinvention and faithful interpretation with as much savvy.
