The Kills to Release New Acoustic EP With Rihanna Cover

‘Echo Home – Non-Electric EP’ marks the 15th anniversary of duo’s ‘Black Rooster EP’

The Kills have announced they will release a new EP. Echo Home – Non-Electric EP will be available digitally and as a limited edition 10-inch vinyl release via Domino in June.

The acoustic set marks the duo of Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince’s 15th anniversary of their first-ever release, Black Rooster EP, and Echo Home includes that EP’s song, “Wait.” Stripped-down versions of Ash & Ice‘s “That Love” and a cover of Rihanna’s “Desperado” are also featured. The Kills previously unveiled their bluesy cover of Rihanna’s Anti cut “Desperado” during an appearance on Sirius XMU.

The Kills also unveiled a video for a new acoustic rendition of “Desperado.” The spare, yearning cover was filmed while they were in-studio recording.

The digital EP houses five tracks and includes both an album and acoustic version of “Echo Home” whereas the 10-inch only has one version of that song. The digital release will be available on June 2nd. The 1000-run limited edition vinyl will be released on August 18th and it’s currently available for pre-order.

The Kills kick off their European tour on May 27th in Liverpool, where they are supporting Guns N’ Roses, Foo Fighters and Bon Jovi on certain dates.
