Hear DIIV’s Zachary Cole Smith Cover (Sandy) Alex G’s “Icehead”

DIIV frontman Zachary Cole Smith has shared a gentle new cover of “Icehead,” a song originally by the artist now known as (Sandy) Alex G. As Consequence of Sound points out, the cover marks Smith’s first new release since announcing he was re-entering “long-haul inpatient treatment” for substance abuse in a February Instagram post.
