The Kills have declared they will release a new EP.
The acoustic guitar set marks the duet of Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince’s 15th anniversary of their first-ever release, Black Rooster EP, and Echo Home includes that EP’s tune, “Wait.” Stripped down versions of Ash & Ice’s “That Love” along with a cover of Rihanna’s “Desperado” are also featured. The Kills formerly unveiled their bluesy cover of Rihanna’s Anti cut “Desperado” during an appearance on Sirius XMU.
The Kills also unveiled a video for a brand new acoustic guitar rendition of “Desperado.” The spare, yearning cover was filmed while they were in-studio recording.
The digital EP houses five tracks and comprises both an album and acoustic guitar version of “Echo Home” whereas the 10-inch just has one variant of that song. The digital release will probably be accessible on June 2nd. The 1000-run limited edition vinyl will be released on August 18th and it’s now available for preorder.
The Kills kick off their European tour on May 27th in Liverpool, where they’re supporting Guns N’ Roses, Foo Fighters and Bon Jovi on certain dates.
