Zola Jesus

Maybe it’s a case of haunted souls recognizing each other, but if one more exceptionally talented, vaguely gothy indie singer covers a Rihanna hit, we’re going to have a trend on our hands. First, Bat For Lashes tried out Rihanna’s “We Found Love,” and now, a month later, Zola Jesus has recorded a swirling and glitchy take on Rihanna’s atmospheric, infernally catchy new single “Diamonds.” Hear the Zola Jesus version below.

I know it’s barely been a year since the last Zola Jesus album, but another one would sound pretty great right now. If Rihanna can keep cranking out LPs annually, so can Nika Roza Danilova.
