On Saturday, The Kills will be kicking off a trio of 15th anniversary shows at Liverpool’s Sound City, and ahead of the dates they’ve announced a new EP as part of the celebrations.
‘Echo Home – Non-Electric EP’ will be released on 2nd June, and features audio from a session the band recently captured at the Electric Lady Studios in New York. The collection will include the album version of ‘Echo Home’, a stripped-back version of the track and more acoustic numbers, including ‘Wait’ and ‘That Love’, two of the first tracks the pair released.
The duo have also shared an acoustic cover of Rihanna’s track ‘Desperado’, which features on the collection. They’ve shared a video of them performing the track, where they turn it into a yearning, bluesy number, Alison Mosshart’s voice shining alongside Jamie Hince’s sole guitar licks.
