A week after the release of their new album Ash & Ice, The Kills have gone on to cover a bit of Rihanna for their SIRIUS XMU live session. Stripped back with Alison Mosshart’s sultry vocals and woven only with the twang of Jamie Hince’s guitar, Rih’s “Desperado” emerges into all of its gunslinging country western glory. Have a listen to the track above right now.
Tune into the fully recorded session tonight on SIRIUS XMU at 9pm Eastern, and will replay on Thursday, June 9th at 3am and 4pm ET, Friday June 10th at 9am ET and again on Sunday at 12pm ET.
