Estonian musician Maria Minerva, whose real name is Maria Juur, released a cover of Heldur Karmo's "Kesköö" ("Midnight").

Minerva lives and works in Los Angeles, where she has built up a successful career as a bedroom pop musician. Her albums have been released by record labels Not Not Fun and 100% Silk; a number of them, including "Will Happiness Find Me?" and "Histrionic" have received praise from acclaimed music publications.

The Guardian recently named Maria Minerva one of the most important artists in Los Angeles, alongside other names such as Kendrick Lamar, Julia Holter and Flying Lotus.

"Kesköö" is not the first time she has recorded a song in Estonian, however; her most recent album, "Histrionic," is closed out by "Hingede öö" ("All Souls' Night").
